    Hi, my name is Richard Andersen and I have been working within sales for the last 7 years. My previous sales role as a National Business Development Manager for a multi-national company was very challenging and rewarding at the same time. I have refined and improved my sales skills, ability to manage key accounts effectively whilst securing new business within our target markets.

    Outside of work you will find me spending time with my partner Lavina and our two children, River and Imogen. We are a family that love getting outside, either at the beach during summer or doing some projects around home. At the end of the day we also enjoy a good family movie with a big bowl of popcorn.

    I’m very pleased to have been offered the role as Area Manager at Horticom and I look forward to growing as I become part of the Horticom family.

    As we head into the festive season most carriers and couriers will experience significant increases in volumes as they transport Santa’s stocking fillers around the country.  This can create capacity issues and it is a good time to remind everyone to get your orders in early to avoid the possibility of transit delays.  We recommend avoiding last minute orders to ensure you are not disappointed.


    Order Deadlines:

    We suggest the following deadlines for the best chance of delivery prior to Christmas:

    South Island:             Wednesday 7th December:           before 3pm

    North Island:             Thursday 14th December:               before 3pm

    Auckland Metro:       Tuesday 19th December:                  before 10am

    Horticom will continue to process orders received after these dates and endeavour to make deliveries before Christmas where possible.  If we are unable to meet that timeframe, they will be delivered on the next business day following Christmas. Please ensure you let us know at the time of ordering if you have a closing down period or any dates you may not be open to accept delivery.

    PEAK Aluminium Balustrades and the new Fiskars Striking Tools (hammers) training modules launched in February of this year with some great results and feedback.

    Team Members were ready for PEAK Balustrade training as they had seen the product in their stores which raised a keen interest and they wanted to know more. Feedback about PEAK Balustrades was incredible and very relevant questions enhanced the engagement and experience of the learners. The hands-on projects for PEAK Balustrade training were a huge hit - they loved designing "my new deck" and took building the demo unit as a time challenge. The quickest to reassemble the unit was a team which completed the task in under 3 minutes.

    The new Fiskars Striking tools (hammers) brought serious "AWE" to Team Members. Once the Team Members got the hammers in their hand, the difference was instantly noticeable and they love the product. To quote one of our Sales Reps who did the training, “The guys loved the 20oz, club and sledge so much that are going to get the two trade reps to take them out on the road…".

    With such an amazing start to our training initiative, we’ve got more modules coming on board! Three new aisle training modules; RACK-IT, PEAK No-Dig Fencing, and Ultra Power Baits which are approved and ready to roll out to the stores. Additional classroom modules on The Big Cheese and Time’s Up Rodent Control are going through the sanctioning process and will soon be in the stores gearing up Team Members to assist customers with our products!

    Watch the training space because coming on the back of the above modules will be Hozelock Hose, Easy Drip and Controller Sensors and Fiskars Cutting. Exciting stuff!
