Wednesday, 17 August 2016

Surf Life Saving New Zealand (SLSNZ) is pleased to announce a new three-year partnership with Hutchwilco.

As New Zealand's leading distributor of quality marine safety equipment, they manufacture their quality Hutchwilco and Loose Unit lifejackets, buoyancy vests and wetsuits in their New Zealand factory. They have been in the marine business since 1894.

As an official partner, Hutchwilco will be the preferred supplier of Personal Flotation Devices (PFDs) for SLSNZ.

They will also supply PFDs to Surf Life Saving Clubs at special rates and individual members will have the opportunity to purchase discounted products using a special member code.

Surf Life Saving New Zealand CEO Paul Dalton says he's pleased to have Hutchwilco on board as an official partner.

"We're also excited to work with Hutchwilco in designing and creating a fit-for-purpose PFD that SLSNZ will stock and make available for sale to all Surf Life Saving Clubs," he says.

Hutchwilco Marketing and Sales Manager Tim Ritchie says Hutchwilco is delighted to announce their support of Surf Life Saving New Zealand through this new sponsorship.

"It brings together two iconic New Zealand organisations who, together, work to keep Kiwis safe around our beaches and waterways. We take our hats off to the fantastic work Surf Life Saving does," he says.
