Canterbury companies commit to Waterloo Business Park

Canterbury companies commit to Christchurch’s Waterloo Business Park


Waterloo Business Park is proud to welcome four major Christchurch companies to the business park in Islington. Transdiesel, Irvine Flooring, Midland Brick will commence building later this year, and Santa Rosa Foods has already broken ground at the new commercial development on Waterloo Road, Christchurch.

“We are delighted to have quality local businesses such as Transdiesel, Irvine Flooring, Midland Brick and Santa Rosa among the first to join the development. We are creating something unique and these leading companies are a perfect fit,” says Waterloo Business Park’s Development Manager, Hamish Clarke.

“We’ve got considerable interest in the business park and hope to make further announcements soon,” he added.

Transdiesel are to relocate their head office, showroom, warehouse and distribution centre into the park. Transdiesel, national diesel engine distributors, were attracted to the business park because of the location, quality of the Waterloo master plan, land quality and price.

“We deal with heavy machinery and we need somewhere that is easy to get in and out of, Waterloo is ideal for this” says Transdiesel Managing Director Mike McKessar. “We were also really inspired by what Waterloo are trying to achieve.”
On completion the new premises will house over 65 staff. Transdiesel has doubled in size in the last three years and needed to expand. “This was the perfect opportunity”.

Irvine Flooring is currently situated further down Waterloo Road. The move into Waterloo Business Park will allow them to expand their Flooring Design Centre and streamline their operations.

“Moving into the Business Park gives us the opportunity to create the best space possible for our head office and design centre. The flexible offerings have meant we can achieve exactly what we want” said Irvine Flooring founder Don Irvine.

Santa Rosa is relocating from their old factory in Burnham so they can improve efficiencies and utilise the latest technologies. Santa Rosa Director Colin Neal says the move to Waterloo Business Park will position them closer to major distribution links.

“We were really pleased with how quickly we could get the project underway and we are looking forward to moving in and getting going. The Santa Rosa brand is synonymous with quality and innovation and Waterloo Business Park is a really exciting concept, it’s going to be a quality development with innovative touches and we can’t wait to be a part of it,” says Mr. Neal.

The $5 million build will initially be 2,500m2 with the ability to expand to 8,000m2 as Santa Rosa’s business grows. The purpose built food processing plant will include office space and a retail shop.
