Mega win for local Mitre10 MEGA Trade store

Mitre 10 MEGA Trade Hastings has taken out the much coveted Mitre 10 MEGA Trade store of the year award for 2021.

Mitre 10 MEGA Trade General Manager Tristan Seccombe says the award win has been something the team has been working on for the last six years and is well deserved and tops off the continued growth in market share for both the Hastings and Napier stores.

“We have worked very hard to be the building supplies provider of choice for many building and trade businesses across Hawke’s Bay and the award recognition is something we are all very proud of.”

Tristan says the two Hawke’s Bay Mitre 10 MEGA Trade stores have focussed on making it easier for local building firms, investing in back-end systems that streamlines ordering building materials.

He adds that a key point of difference with Mitre 10 MEGA Trade is being able to supply everything from a ‘buildings foundations to the fence-line.

“We can provide a much wider offering from materials for foundations to kitchens, bathrooms, plants, permanent fencing and everything in between and this appeals to small and large building firms.”

Tristan says an example of the wider service and product offering is winning a tender last year to supply a Recognised Seasonal Worker accommodation complex with everything from building materials right through to beds and linen.

In winning the award local owners Graeme and Stephen Ricketts praised the team for their win.

“We couldn’t be prouder of the teams achievements and they definitely deserve this recognition,” says Graeme Ricketts.

Regional Trade Development Manager Tony Scott  says Mitre 10 MEGA Hastings has raised the bar for the way we service our customers’ needs, at the same time continually looking for new ways to strengthen and grow the relationships they have with their customers.

“Having achieved exponential sales growth in a challenging environment during a timber crisis, the Mitre 10 MEGA Trade team continue to strive for excellence ensuring the customers’ needs and expectations are met every single day.”
