Going South for New Business in New Zealand
17 Jun 2020

Vesconite Bearings New Zealand representative Eddie Swanepoel will be visiting South Island from 22 June to 26 June, following the opening of New Zealand to domestic travel.

Swanepoel is based In Tauranga, New Zealand, and hasn’t been able to travel because of restrictions on domestic travel. But since June 9, there are no restrictions on daily life, business activities, gatherings and public transportation, although the country remains closed to most international travel.

Swanepoel reports that “New Zealand is ready for business” and firms are keen to see him, despite many catching up order backlogs due to the lockdown. He intends to visit forklift fleet owners, abattoirs and hydro-electric companies while on South Island.

Vesconite Bearings embarked on a concerted customer-relations programme in the weeks prior to Swanepoel’s visit and has been actively promoting its no-grease wear-resistant bearings to New Zealand’s industries.

It has seen quote and order inquiries pick up over the last few weeks, and is encouraged that there were no new Covid-19 cases or deaths in New Zealand at the time of writing.

“The lockdown had an adverse effect on many businesses. Some were forced to close,” says Swanepoel.

“However, I am encouraged by my clients and their positive responses to proposals to discuss applications and materials,” he notes.

Swanepoel can be contacted at vesconite@vesconite.com or on +64 (20) 4011 3659
