Tauranga growth sees L&B expand to new Sulphur Pt premises

Date: 21-Dec-2018



 The continuing expansion of the Tauranga marine industry, along with the opening of the exciting new Tauranga Marine Precinct, has seen Lusty & Blundell Ltd move their Tauranga branch into new, larger premises at Sulphur Point.

L&B’s new Tauranga branch, at 26 Marsh Street, is a full support and supply centre for L&B and its large range of world-leading marine systems. These include popular high quality brands such as marine electronics brands Raymarine and Vesper AIS; Ocean Signals’ rescueME safety range; Xylem’s Jabsco and Rule pumps and water handling solutions; Muir winches; Westerbeke generators; Steelhead cranes; Blue Sea Electrical components; Betta Lead Crystal Batteries; CTEK battery charging and monitoring; Ultraflex steering solutions: Naiad Stabilizers and a large range of electrical cable, to name just a few.

Tauranga branch manager Morgan Brodie says the handy new location, new, longer opening hours and larger service facility will allow L&B to better service the area’s continually-expanding marine industry and its growing number of commercial and recreational boaties and fishers.

“With the recent centralisation of marine activity around Sulphur Point, it makes sense to move our services, knowledge and products to an easily accessible location,” says Morgan Brodie. “Our new Marsh St premises is perfectly positioned for experienced staff members Grant McMillen, Paul Jury, Kahlo Bubb, Sam Wilkinson and myself to offer all the products, service and advice this fast growing region demands.”

L&B’s new Tauranga branch at 26 Marsh St opened on November 12. It is open Monday to Friday from 7.30am to 5.00pm and the team can be contacted at (07) 927-9270.
