A Wee Bit About Us...
Bruce: Although I was raised as a ‘Westy’, I have been in Whangarei since 1980, so feel like a local now. Much of my earlier years were as a Sales Rep with a variety of companies, as an owner driver and the past several years as a lighting consultant at Lighting Direct and Sales consultant with Totalspan.
I felt that it was time to use the knowledge that I have got and put it to good use in our own business.
Certainly if you have any lighting questions, I will be able to help. I have two children who are working in the retail sector.
Trish: Being raised mostly in a farming environment, with my schooling in Hikurangi, Okaihau, Maungakaramea and Tauraroa, I have a love of the outdoors, animals, a DIY approach and ‘small community’ networks. I have learned from my parents the ‘hard work’ attitude and feel proud to have had those role models.
Most of my working life has been involved in the early childhood education sector, both as a teacher, Senior Manager, and later as a Professional Development Facilitator with the University of Auckland.
Other experience has been in retail as a shop supervisor and as a real estate salesperson.
Having designed my own home, project managed and also completed much of the internal finishing and grounds myself, I have an awareness of some of those DIY projects.
Being in business, has been our goal for some time, which has now been ticked off the ‘bucket’ list for the moment. Our mission statement encompasses what we believe and have a genuine commitment to maintain. We both have a belief in a win:win approach and to treat people as we want to be treated.
We are here to help you with your queries, projects and dilemmas, the best we can. We look forward to hearing your ideas for improvement.
