Supporting Our Farmers
The Globus team at our Bankstown factory recently held a barbeque to support our farmers currently affected by the prolonged drought. 100% of the funds raised went to this very worthy cause.
Our fund-raising efforts were greatly assisted by the support of Fettayleh Foods and the Georges Hall IGA who donated supplies for use on the day. Thanks to everyone who helped organise the lunch and who assisted on the day.
Globus Group’s New Location in Wellington – August 2018
After over 30 years of operating from the same factory in Seaview, Globus Group New Zealand has relocated to a new purpose-built factory and office premises in Hutt Park Road, Lower Hutt. The new location is only a short distance from our old site, so is convenient for staff, customers and suppliers alike.
The New Zealand Sales Manager Peter Ayson said the new premises will serve Globus and their customers well for many years to come. The new premises include a fully equipped workshop, a temperature-controlled storage facility and purpose-built production capabilities. The move took place in late June, and the site is already fully operational. Peter thanked all the New Zealand staff who assisted in making the move as smooth as possible and would welcome any customers who would like to drop in for a tour of the new premises.
New Zealand Sales and Marketing Manager
Globus Group is pleased to advise that Peter Ayson has been appointed as the New Zealand Sales and Marketing Manager. Peter currently works in Auckland, but will be relocating to Wellington in October, and will start with Globus later that month.
Peter will be working with Michael Faure, the Group Sales and Marketing Manager, and the New Zealand Account Managers to grow New Zealand sales, and will also oversee the relocation of the Seaview operations to our new premises in 2018.
Peter joins Globus at an exciting time, and we believe he will be a valuable addition to the Globus team in New Zealand, and an asset for the business and our customers alike.
