To All Buyers of Commercial Textiles in New Zealand
Are you aware that in recent times a number of significant, long term New Zealand owned and operated suppliers of commercial textiles have been purchased by a large overseas owned and operated company? There is also a possibility they intend to purchase at least one more commercial textile supplier. Obviously this means a significant change in your choice of suppliers
As a result there may also be a number of downsides for New Zealand commercial textile customers.
The first will be a reduction of choice available to you. You may not be able to match what you have been buying and using, the weight and construction of the towels may be totally different along with size, finish and feel. Sheets also may be a different construction, weight and size than what you are currently using. For hotel and motel operators this may affect your guests who use this linen.
Availability of stock may also be an issue particularly in the transition period.
There is no current local ownership, we understand that the amalgamated operation is managed directly from off shore on a day to day basis. This no doubt will create some issues responding to local market needs.
Obviously now having such a large market share, despite all the promises and good intentions, this may result in reduced competition in the New Zealand market.
When you think of it, it’s either a big overseas owned company or local ownership and control when it comes to who supplies your commercial textiles.
We suggest because of these developments it may be timely to review your supplier of commercial textiles.
