From humble beginnings in 1948 to an iconic leader in New Zealand’s commercial and domestic kitchen equipment supply industry, Burns & Ferrall’s established reputation for excellence in customer service and product support is now even greater.
Joining forces with E.CF-Asia Pacific, incorporating Reward Hospitality and Tas Hotel & Catering Supplies in mid-July last year, the 72-year-old hospitality powerhouse now boasts hugely expanded inventory and extra capacity, as well as the largest hospitality showroom in the country.
To support this growth, Burns & Ferrall will be opening a brand-new head office, warehouse and state-of-the-art purpose-built showroom in March 2020 located in East Tamaki, Auckland.
The new showroom boasts a fully operational test kitchen, bar and wash-up zones, as well as inspirational displays of the latest products and trends in tabletop and domestic sinks.
Included within the space are leading brands including EcoLab, Tork, RATIONAL, Meiko and many more.
Burns & Ferrall’s director, Tony Broome says “This is a dream start to 2020. Our new premises gives us the capability to offer next day delivery anywhere on the North Island, with future plans to offer the same service to the South.”
The larger premises consolidates the distribution, service, delivery and dispatch arms of the business creating greater supply chain efficiencies for their customers. CEO of E.CF-Asia Pacific, David Bull says, “The importance of maintaining local representation is essential to our success within New Zealand & the Pacific Islands and is something E.CF-Asia Pacific and Burns & Ferrall have ongoing commitment to. The opening of the new full-service Auckland head office, warehouse and showroom is the first step in supporting and developing this already exceptional business.”
Burns & Ferrall will now also have access to a broader and more comprehensive product offering from the global E.CF Group sourcing network, larger inventory depths, digital tools and group support.
“We’re really excited about showcasing and delivering our industry-leading products, even quicker than ever before” says Director Tony Broome. “Customers will notice our broadened range into tabletop and consumable categories, showing our commitment to becoming the hospitality industry supplier and distributor of choice.”
