“We are looking forward to better servicing trade customers in the local area with a team of experts across a range of customer services roles. We have been servicing trade customers from the Te Puke site for a long time, so it will be great to build on the great relationships we’ve formed and provide them a stronger commercial offer that better suits their needs,” Mr Baker said in the report.

The new Bunnings Tauriko Trade Centre is situated on Taurikura Drive, Tauriko, close to Winstone Wallboards’ new plasterboard factory.
