Wellington Drive announces new ‘Customer Innovation Centre’

Wellington Drive announces new ‘Customer Innovation Centre’ and further
operational changes to reduce costs

Wellington Drive Technologies is pleased to announce the change of its registered head office to 21 Arrenway Drive, Rosedale, Auckland. This change has been designed to enable a new ‘Customer Innovation Centre’ and head office in a building sized and configured more appropriately for its
innovation and business development activities.

In conjunction with this change, the Company has also consolidated its global supply chain management capabilities into the New Zealand office. The company will also invest in selected additional supply chain skills in New Zealand and over the next 3 months will cease all supply chain support activities currently located in Singapore.

CFO Howard Milliner commented, “This important change in the way we manage our supply chain operations will deliver improved customer service and reduced operating costs, and is a direct benefit of the improved capabilities that we are seeing in our new supplier base. We would like to thank our Singapore team for their dedicated service over recent years as they have worked hard to improve the Wellington business. We are excited by the move to a new office location in Auckland, re-branded as our ‘Customer Innovation Centre’ to reflect our heightened customer focus and as a location where we will continue to develop our company’s growth strategies, design our Advanced Motors and Smart
Control products, and explore new technologies and solutions that will help our customers grow.”
