Masport Earns The Trust Of New Zealanders For A Third Year!

Masport Earns The Trust Of New Zealanders For A Third Year!

2012, 2013 and now 2014… Masport has earned the trust of Kiwis once more by proudly scooping up the 2014 Reader’s Digest Most Trusted brand award in the Gardening Equipment category.

Masport’s General Manager Steve Hughes couldn’t be prouder of the win. He says “100 plus years in business is a milestone few Kiwi companies reach and given the dramatic changes that have occurred over these years – we are fortunate to be here, let alone leading the market and winning this award for a third year running and since its inception.”

“Trust is a precious commodity and a precondition for a successful business – it means doing what you said you’re going to do – yet something so simple is one of the hardest things for companies to achieve.” Hughes believes the ability to consistently provide quality products that meet the needs of consumers, good service and never taking customers for granted has culminated in gaining and attaining this prestigious stamp of trust approval.

Hughes goes on to say “We want to convey a huge thanks to the generations of Kiwis who continue to make Masport the most popular Gardening Equipment brand. Masport has come a long way in the global marketplace, shipping to 46 countries - but Masport’ s proud New Zealand roots are unmoving and the dedication to serve our home market and retain this position of trust again, remains infinitely strong.”
