“Croxley is one of S.S.A.B’s long standing and valued partners in the trade right from the start and I must say that they have been very helpful and supportive since then especially with the annual Back to School Campaign that S.S.A.B implements every year for the children of Samoa” – Fiti Leung Wai
With only a few days away from S.S.A.B’s Golden Experience Trade Promotion, the excitement is building.
And Croxley NZ can hardly wait. The company is looking forward to meet the people of Samoa to discuss their needs pertaining to school products, office, home and more.
Representing the Croxley Company at the Trade Promotion, which starts this Friday, is Graham Hedges, the company’s Export Manager.
“Croxley is looking to grow the Samoan customer’s knowledge of their vast product range,” he said.
Mr. Hedges has been in the stationery trade for so many years and has been travelling to Samoa since 1991.
“I have quite an understanding of the Samoa market concerning their needs of stationery and some furniture products as I have been visiting the country on a more regular basis,” said Mr. Hedges.
Croxley is New Zealand’s most significant wholesaler for stationery products. Croxley owns or represents many of the world’s most iconic stationery brands such as Warwick, Uni, Collins, Olympic to name a few.
“Our long-term ownership of these brands and our global partnerships, which stretch back more than 50 years in some cases, are a measure of the company’s success. But we never stand still in our quest to source and bring new brands to the table,” Mr. Hedges said.
“When we find opportunities we don’t jump in; we develop and execute strategies with the help of a cross-functional team that delivers the share, volumes and profits that result in the desired outcomes for the business.”
Croxley NZ is the prominent supplier of exercise books and most stationery products being used in schools and offices in the country as well as the Pacific.
“You will find in any school from primary to secondary and tertiary level the well-known Warwick books such as 1B5, 1E4 and not to mention the 2B6 and 2B6 hardcover books,” S.S.A.B C.E.O, Fiti Leung Wai said
Croxley visits their customers and authorised retailer S.S.A.B two to three times a year and this goes to show how much they treasure their close relationships with their customers and partner in the Samoa market. This will be the third trade promotion hosted by SSAB that Croxley has taken part in.
“Croxley is one of S.S.A.B’s long standing and valued partners in the trade right from the start and I must say that they have been very helpful and supportive since then especially with the annual Back to School Campaign that S.S.A.B implements every year for the children of Samoa,” said Mrs. Leung Wai.
“I am grateful for the tremendous support for S.S.A.B as well as other retailers of Croxley here in Samoa.”
