Verhoeven Group: Master of Growth

Verhoeven Group: Master of Growth

Waikato-based Verhoeven Group scooped up two awards in the 2017 Deloitte Fast 50 regional awards in Hamilton last night; taking home the Master of Growth award and the Fastest Growing Retail or Consumer Products Business for the Central North Island.

Verhoeven Group is the parent company for Life Fitness NZ, Kawasaki NZ, Asset Resources and Nautique NZ. Verhoeven Group specialises in premium-end products in the Fitness Industry and Lifestyle & Leisure Market.

Life Fitness NZ supply the world’s leading Commercial Fitness equipment to gyms throughout New Zealand and the Pacific Islands. Life Fitness NZ also are heavily involved in the design and development of some of New Zealand’s leading clubs.

Nautique boats are leading the wakeboarding and waterski towboat industry here in New Zealand. The G23 model is the most award decorated boat of all time, world-wide. Nautique NZ are very proud to supply these premium boats throughout New Zealand.

Kawasaki NZ are the distributors of Kawasaki Motorcycles and Jetski’s who supply and support their dealer network throughout New Zealand and the Pacific Islands.

Shane Verhoeven, Managing Director, says “It is freaky how quickly this has all come about, the acquisitions and the growth Verhoeven Group has managed to achieve isn’t really realised until you enter in a competition like this and coming away with these two awards, gee that’s pretty special to us.”

“I guess the stress of business and life in general pass us by really fast, so with that, this gives us the opportunity to appreciate and reflect on what we have accomplished and celebrate the success we have managed to achieve.”

The regional Deloitte Fast 50 winners advance through to the national awards, to be held in Auckland at the Deloitte Festival of Fast Growth in November.

Deloitte Private Partner Bill Hale says “these results clearly demonstrate that there are a diverse range of businesses across New Zealand that are achieving outstanding growth.
