Fencing Contractors Association New Zealand (‘Fencing Contractors NZ’) and Pacific Steel NZ Ltd (‘Pacific Steel’ trading as ‘Wiremark’) announce that Wiremark® has concluded its Strategic Founding Partnership with Fencing Contractors NZ.
Ongoing discussions regarding the strategic direction of Fencing Contractors NZ and the evolving relationship between the two organisations has led both parties to agree that the Strategic partnership has served its initial purpose.
The driving force behind the creation of Fencing Contractors NZ, Pacific Steel is expected to continue its long-standing relationship with the Association through a corporate partnership, the details of which will be announced at a later date.
The move to a corporate partnership offers mutual benefits to both parties, with Wiremark® able to focus on the commercial opportunities available through direct engagement with Members instead of being part of the board. Fencing Contractors NZ will continue raising the profile of the Association and its Members through increased engagement with the wider fencing community.
“Pacific Steel were instrumental in the creation of the Fencing Contractors Association and we are grateful for their development and ongoing support of the Association over the last 15 years” said Brad Joines, President of Fencing Contractors NZ.
“We look forward to developing our existing relationship with them to provide more benefits for our Members and the Wiremark® brand. The Board of Fencing Contractors NZ are excited about the future of the Association and look forward to sharing our plans with members and partners in due course” said Joines.
Stan Clark, Manager Sales and Marketing Pacific Steel said “Wiremark® are honoured to have been an active part of FCANZ since its inception. Fencing Contractors NZ has been at the forefront of leading the fencing community into a safer, quality focussed and trade recognised industry throughout New Zealand. Certainly, the Kiwi term “number 8 wire attitude” can apply to this community which Pacific Steel is proud to be part of and with our locally made Wiremark® looks forward to being involved with in a modified capacity.”
