Schaefer Systems Australia and Auckland Racking & Shelving Solutions have signed a distributor agreement, giving Auckland Racking the rights to distribute and install SSI SCHAEFER’S range of products in New Zealand.
Auckland Racking has been a leading designer and installer of warehouse shelving and racking systems in the New Zealand market for over 35 years. The founding partners have both had significant experience within the industrial storage industry, so it was a natural fit for them to work together to develop Auckland Racking & Shelving Solutions.
Specialising in the used pallet racking market initially, Auckland Racking has developed a reputation for providing quality total-solution projects from conceptual drawings, design, supply and ultimately safe and efficient installation or relocation. Since its foundation in 2004, Auckland Racking has become the go-to partner for project management and installation of storage solutions for many iconic brands located in New Zealand.
With over 25 staff and 5 teams of full-time installers who are supported by locally-based SSI-certified designers, Auckland Racking is well placed to cover the whole of New Zealand.
Brett Thirup, General Manager of Schaefer Systems International Pty Ltd said, “This partnership with Matt Cowan and the Auckland Racking team will greatly supplement the service levels and products available to New Zealand through Auckland Racking. We are excited for the prospects”.
Matt Cowan, General Manager of Auckland Racking and Shelving Solutions said, “This opportunity gives Auckland Racking a unique opportunity to provide total end-to-end service to the market place. We can now manage new racking projects from design through to final compliance and sign-off. Partnering with SSI SCHAEFER is a natural fit with our existing business model and we are excited by the opportunity to work with a brand that is at the top of its class for quality, engineering and innovation. We look forward to a long and prosperous partnership with SSI SCHAEFER in Australia.”
