The construction industry is constantly subject to fluctuations, reflecting the mood of the economy on the one hand and international trends on the other. There are times when the industry defies economic cycles of boom and recession, but players in the field thrive on two most important factors, namely good service and financial discipline.
Infrastructure development, township improvement and people’s propensity to spend are factors that influence the growth of the construction industry. Contractors and property developers may differ in their approach concentrating on commercial properties or the residential sector, but they commonly rely on quality building supplies and materials.
The financial crisis has reportedly hit hard many companies in the construction sector, and with the credit crunch and cash flow becoming major problems, those with sound financial management will continue to grow and expand.
Discount Building Supplies Limited in Papatoetoe is among such companies.
Years of experience as an importer and supplier of an extensive range of quality building products manufactured for domestic and commercial applications, helps the Company understand the economic and market trends and aligns its business strategy accordingly.
As an entity of manageable size, Discount Building Supplies Limited Director Harry Saini symbolises the dictum that hard work, dedication and perseverance, augmented by quality products, sensible pricing and personalised service would bring home success and glory.
“Success in hardware and building supplies is like in any other business; it does not come about without hard work. If you are proactive, sensitive to market needs and most important at all, embrace good principles, you cannot go wrong. We believe that quality products provided with quality service will see us grow consistently,” he said.
The Company is today an important supplier of products and services to architects, builders, electricians, plumbers and many others in the construction industry throughout New Zealand.
“We are committed to growth, serving our customers and looking for new business ventures. We are proud to be a New Zealand owned and operated company,” Mr Saini said.
The Company’s product range includes Bathroom Wear (tiles, toilets, taps, vanity and showers), Lights (downlights, halogen lights and chandeliers), Wall Tiles, Doors and Door Locks, Kitchen Sinks and many more.
“While prices are kept to the minimum possible, the anxiety is to offer products that suit the needs and budgets of every customer,” Mr Saini said.
