This new purpose built 5000m2 facility supplies stock to Kathmandu's existing 37 stores throughout New Zealand. Kathmandu Chief Executive, Peter Halkett, said the increased warehouse space would support its ongoing store roll-out program and the expansion of the company’s product range.
“As a major player in outdoor gear for travel and adventure in Australasia, Kathmandu currently has its support offices and national distribution centres in Christchurch and Melbourne. But with more than 100 stores across Australia and New Zealand, the company has been reviewing its future requirements,” Mr Halkett said.
“The decision to build at Portlink also reflects the Kathmandu Board’s belief in the economic future of Christchurch and its commitment to the company’s heritage in Christchurch, where we have been trading for over 20 years” Mr Halkett said.
Kathmandu was completed in 2012.
