Hamilton supplier to construction industry relocates to purpose-built premises

Family-owned and operated Ray Staiger Limited (RSL) in Hamilton has built its own new premises, despite tough economic times and after 20 years of servicing the plumbing, electrical and DIY markets with its own invention - pipe support systems.
 
The new head office and distribution centre has also moved from Avalon Drive to Ruffell Road in the developing Te Rapa North commercial subdivision.
 
Managing director Ray Staiger decided to build the purpose-built 1000 sq m facility despite post-recession economic difficulties experienced throughout the building and construction sector, with the aim of expanding RSL’s presence in New Zealand.
 
Established from humble beginnings in the family garage in 1993, the business is based on Ray’s simple yet ingenious invention, the SimpleFix strap - a multi-fit, multi-applicable metal strapping solution in which to hang a range of pipes. The business has grown to incorporate a wide range of SimpleFix pipe and building strapping, pipe brackets, hot water cylinder restraints kits, fasteners, adhesives and more.
 
The company has also been appointed as the Australasian distributorship of the American-made Toggler brand of wall and ceiling fasteners, along with other world leading brands such as Pryda timber connecting systems, says Mr Staiger.
 
“The investment in relocating our operations enables the company to build on its established product range and to further service the needs of our ever-growing customer base.”
