Our story

Our story

NZ Trade Group (NZTG) is the complete trade business solution, helping you to get ahead, faster. There’s nothing else quite like it in the market.

For trade businesses, NZTG means more profit, more success and most importantly, more time to spend on the things that are important to you. So, where did NZTG come from - and why do our members say it’s the secret weapon for their business?

NZTG was founded in 2006 by three like-minded electrical contracting businesses in Auckland. From the get-go, they banded together to purchase through preferred suppliers, achieving group volume-based cost savings on materials and equipment. A decade later, those three foundation member businesses are still an active part of NZTG.

From the original three, other electrical businesses soon came on board as members and it was quickly apparent that NZTG offered so much more than just group buying power.

By sharing our combined knowledge, systems, structures, labour and resources, we have evolved as a strong group and a formidable business tool. Today, NZTG has a ‘hand-picked’ membership of over100 electrical contracting businesses nationwide, from the Cape to Bluff.

We take our members from being great tradespeople, to being great business people. Our members constantly improve their business profitability with the help of our software, suppliers and services.

In 2009, NZTG developed the first version of the unique System Fox quotation software – it’s designed by tradespeople for tradespeople, and it’s changed the way our members run their trade businesses.

To this day, many of our members increasingly rely on the System Fox software, as well as the services and supplier relationships we offer. System Fox has developed significantly since its inception and today it is a highly valuable full project management tool, available only to NZTG members. Our members often say they couldn’t run their business successfully without it.

And NZTG isn’t just good for members; together, we can help builders, homeowners and contractors with an overall better service, through fast, professional and transparent quotes and access to the best products and industry knowledge.

Proudly New Zealand owned and operated, we are constantly striving to demonstrate that NZ Trade Group is a leading and respected group of professionals nationwide. With NZTG, everyone wins: members run their businesses more successfully and sustainably, customers get a better and more transparent service, and the industry’s reputation lifts through improved business management.

Our mission is to create exceptional trade businesses. Reach your full potential and become more profitable with NZTG, sooner.
