KarenSenior Operations Coordinator - Rotorua
Karen joined our team in 2022 as Receptionist. Her favourite treats are coffee and Caramilk chocolate. She loves to camp out at beautiful Waikawau Bay in Coromandel for a holiday. She clearly loves the outdoors with mountain biking New Zealand at the top of her bucket list.
Justin has been part of our trades team since 2021.
Fraser joined us in 2020 as a Tradesperson. He reckons you can’t beat H20 for a drink. Fun fact: he once competed in a squash tournament with only a month of training and he thinks you can’t beat the Central Otago mountains for a view. We’ll agree with him on the last one!
Warwick joined our BOP Plumbing & Gas Kawerau team in 2022 as a Tradesperson. He was born in Wellington and loves nothing better than a good bag of chips to snack on! His favourite drinks are beer, honey bourbon, and water (not necessarily in that order) and top of his bucket list is to travel overseas. His favourite spot here in NZ is Lake Waikaremoana.
Mohammed joined us in 2022 as a Tradesperson. He was born in the Fiji Islands. His favourite snacks are KitKat and coke! He’s a bit of a thrill-seeker – he’s done the sky swing already here in Rotorua and plans to do a skydive one of these days. His favourite holiday is heading to the sunny Gold Coast in Aussie.
Apache joined us in 2020. He’s a Rotorua local, born and bred. He likes to go spearfishing and once speared a 120cm Kingfish at Ohiwa! On his bucket list is to go hunting in Alaska. In the meantime, he’s happy with a blue V, some marshmallows, and the awesome fishing and hunting here in NZ. We’re excited to see Apache continue to grow in his career and on-the-job skills.
Clem joined our team in 2021 as an Apprentice. He got right into it, and has been great to have on board! He’s a bit of an adventure seeker – with rally car roof surfing ticked off and base jumping on the bucket list. Give him a banoffee pie and a steiny after a day on the slopes at his favourite holiday spot in Ruapehu and he’ll be in his happy place.
JoshuaSenior Tradesperson
Joshua joined our team back in 2017. He was born in Whakatane and loves dairy milk chocolate and iced coffee!

Noah joined our team as an Apprentice in 2022. He’s definitely adventurous, with skydiving at the top of his bucket list! His favourite spot for a holiday is Opape and he has a sweet tooth with some of his favourite snacks being watermelon lollipops and fanta.
Teaowera joined our Kawerau team as an Apprentice in 2022. His favourite drink is a classic H20 and he doesn’t eat candy On his bucket list is to own his own house and that’s his biggest focus as he kicks off his new career in the trade.

Susan Brown, Lake Stay Rotorua
Thanks for rescuing us from our dux quest bathroom pipe leak on a Sunday morning. Awesome service thank you.
Ross, January 2018

Over the last 2 days we have had Jordan Lawrence and some of his colleagues here fixing a major leak out the back of our store.

I must say they are not only good at finding and fixing the leek, but Jordan and the team carried out their work with the upmost professionalism and care.

They left the work site in a very clean state and I will be recommending your team to other business in town.
