About Us


The story behind TradeMax


Since we began business as a small, family-run trade outlet store in Dunedin back in 2007 we’ve seen new technology introduced, old tools redefined and competitors come and go.

We started out selling paint sundries. Early success meant we were able to reinvest in the business and grow our product range substantially. Now, after nearly a decade trading, we’ve grown to become a trusted provider to the decorative trade in New Zealand.

With warehouse and showroom facilities in Dunedin and people in Christchurch and throughout the lower South Island we are now major suppliers for some of the country's best known brands in paint, plaster, access equipment, wall coverings, spray units and general accessories.

We’re fortunate to have a solid reputation in the local and international marketplace. This has allowed us to forge close ties with major suppliers and world-leading brands.

As a result we are often the exclusive New Zealand painting, plastering, access and safety equipment supplier of the latest and greatest technologies. These are sourced from companies whose aim fits ours – delivering products of the highest standard with the view to improving marketplace performance.

This approach is backed by a few key capabilities…

We’re there when you need us. Our commitment to take the TradeMax brand throughout New Zealand is backed by our easy-use website for ordering online and the ability to have feet on the ground should you make the call and need our assistance.

We’re as good as our word. We won’t try to sell you something that’s not ideal for the task at hand – and we don’t make promises we can’t keep. Our integrity is vital to our continued success.

We value long-term customers. We take pride in how many repeat customers we have gained over the years. We respect these relationships as being hard-won and, if we were to ever get slack, easy to lose.

We’re easy to deal with. We’re always ready to have a chat about what’s new, what works and how we can help ensure your quality finish starts with tools from us. So give us a call or email us today!
