World-leading strapping solutions
RLB IS one of New Zealand’s leading Strapping & Packaging suppliers with a well established reputation for excellence. “We’ve earned that reputation through our commitment to providing customers with expertise, innovation, unique packaging and strapping solutions, and safety products across all industry sectors,” says Mike Button, Sales and Marketing Manager.
“We’re family owned and operated, and have been for close to 100 years. It makes a difference. We pride ourselves on our people and our relationships with our customers – they sit at the heart of our business. Throughout our long history we’ve always retained our founders’ spirit (RL Button), priding ourselves on our personable approach, integrity and customer focus.
“We’ve grown from a Wellingtonbased company with a local focus to a national supplier with a physical presence in Auckland and Christchurch and sales and service presence throughout New Zealand. Today, we look after national contracts that span the length of the country.”
RLB have developed a niche within the New Zealand timber industry and the downstream construction sector.
“This is primarily due to our expert understanding of strapping, strapping tools and machinery, and servicing. From this base we have also become trusted advisors for all packaging and strapping consumables used in these industries – from timber wrap, customised films, marking and coding products, to safety work-wear, and personal protective equipment. We also have decades of supply presence within sawmills, large format network stores, trade building suppliers, and frame and truss sites across the country.
“We’re one of New Zealand’s most preferred strapping suppliers, offering customers everything they need including the leading strapping brands and equipment. RLB is one of the only suppliers that offer the total strapping proposition through our three core pillars: Market leading consumables Leading systems & tooling The best onsite / offsite servicing “Through our partnerships we are able to bring global leading technology to New Zealand. There is no greater testament to this than our recent partnership with TITAN that sees us deliver innovative strapping tools and equipment as the exclusive New Zealand distributor,” says Mike.
