F. Ball launches in New Zealand

Flooring contractors in New Zealand will be able to get their hands on groundbreaking products from F. Ball for the first time.

Following the appointment of Urban Flooring as the company’s New Zealand distributor, from May, a range of F. Ball’s flooring preparation and installation products will be available to contractors and retailers, with Urban Flooring stocking and distributing the iconic yellow bucket adhesives, levelling compounds, moisture management solutions, other ancillary products and tools.

The distributor prides itself on being ‘a family-run enterprise with an eye for premier supplies’ and is well-positioned to serve customers all over the country from its Christchurch headquarters, as well as another distribution centre in Tauranga, North Island.

Representatives of Urban Flooring based throughout New Zealand have already benefitted from extensive product training to equip them with the knowledge to make confident product recommendations and draw up project specifications. A customised session was streamed live to the other side of the world from the state-of-the-art F. Ball Centre of Excellence training facility, delivered by head of training Tim Green, with live flooring installations demonstrating how to use F. Ball products.

Commenting on the partnership, Gareth Lewis, F. Ball’s Export Business Manager for Asia-Pacific and the Americas, said: “We’re excited to be working with Urban Flooring for our New Zealand launch. Though it will be the first time we’ve had a presence in the country, we know a lot of British expats here are eager to get their hands on our products. We also invite New Zealand floorlayers to get in touch and start trialling F. Ball products – we’re confident they’ll be equally impressed with the quality results they provide.”

Derek Chiu, Director at Urban Flooring, added, “F. Ball is trusted globally for its quality, innovation and product guarantee, so we’re pleased to be able to offer our customers F. Ball products as we support their entry into the New Zealand market.”
