Wellington business welcomes cut-price fuel retailer

Businesses will welcome the arrival in the Wellington region of fuel cost-cutter Waitomo, says Business Central.

"This is good news because competition is always good for any market, and particularly when it involves a disrupting company like Waitomo," says Chief Executive John Milford.

"Their move into Upper Hutt today, and their plan to do the same in Wellington City in July, are welcome, because not only do they offer cut-price fuel but their presence tends to force down the price demanded by other companies nearby.

"It’s all good news for businesses that rely on transport in some way to enable them to go about their daily business, and it’s also good news for the public."
