The TradeStore Story

It could be said that the foundations of TradeStore were laid in a shed in Glenfield in 1983, the brainchild of a man with a passion for building & trade. The next 33 years were spent building on a business that has not only endured but grown within a challenging industry. In 2015 the next generation met with the current, the blue prints for the future were drawn and in them were the plans to embrace the online world - months later TradeStore was launched.

TradeeStore is a 100% New Zealand owned family business with direct access to leading manufacturers from New Zealand, North America, Europe, Australia and elsewhere around the globe. Thanks to enduring business and personal relationships TradeStore has access to the best trade tools and products available. We travel the world annually visiting trade fairs where we renew old acquaintances and search out the latest innovations about to hit the market.

TradeStore’s aim is to provide our customers a range of trade tools and products to suit the job, suit the user and suit the budget, whether they be a trade professional, DIY’er or someone with a sense of simple curiosity. We love what we do and we want to share that with you.

We also want to grow, get more stuff, good stuff, and despite all our experience we at TradeStore believe we can’t have all the answers. Which is why we want to hear from you - if you have an idea, a moment of inspiration, see a fantastic tool - or use a splash of good old Kiwi ingenuity to invent a fantastic tool, or have a suggestion about our range, service, or the functionality of our site. We want to hear from you.
