Trending Quality & Durability

Hi Everyone,

In this newsletter we would like to tell you about our recent trip to Europe in temperatures well below zero and how magnificently Europe's buildings perform! While we are glad summer has at last arrived in NZ, it was fantastic to experience the extreme cold outside and complete warmth of every building we entered. 

In working with our European partners, our focus is on the ultimate building performance from each stage of the manufacture of construction materials through to every level of construction - ensuring quality & time-tested durability. 

We hope you will enjoy reading a small account of some of our partners we visited and a snapshot of why European technology remains amongst some of the most trusted globally and the growing presence they play in the construction industry especially around sustainability & energy.

On the home front we are very excited to let you know we have been granted DECLARE accreditation for our POROTHERM Clay Blocks. 

To celebrate our highly valued European connections, please find the special invitation below to attend an Italian made Expo in Auckland on Valentine's Day! You will see some of Italy's most prestigious cars, motorbikes & products while enjoying the best of Italian wines & food...

Thank you for receiving this newsletter - we hope you will enjoy reading as much as we do putting it together...we apologise if you have received this in error. Please send us your feedback and don't forget to RSVP your attendance to the Expo. See you there!
