Creating an efficient, one-stop solution with Noel Leeming

Venture Developments began in the Bay of Plenty but within a few years saw significant growth, taking their design/build projects to Christchurch, Auckland, and Hamilton. This fast growth meant that they needed a national supplier that could provide not only continuity of product and competitive pricing but who also aligned with their company values. 

As Jarod Thorpe, CEO of Venture Developments explains “Price was important but we look at the core values of the partner we’re looking to work with and Noel Leeming have very similar values.” The business also places a lot of weight on ensuring a quality offering for their customers, both during the build and after completion. Through the partnership with Noel’s, their clients receive peripheral pricing on products meaning they can get discounted pricing on selected appliance products. “We use our buying power to help our customers” says Jarod. 

A shared vision and values are what initially bought this partnership together but as Jarod explains, there’s more to this. “Our working relationship is extremely good with great communication. Our meetings are always professional, but it can often feel like working with your mates because of the shared values. When they call me about a problem, they follow up with a ‘but I have this solution for you’. If something goes wrong they inform us early and provide a solution.” 

Alan Jackson, National Trade Manager at Noel Leeming works closely with Jarod, catching up monthly to help Venture get the most from the team at Noel Leeming. “We have a team of dedicated specialists all trained to provide consistency for our clients, no matter where they are or which store they visit.” Noel Leeming are known for their experience and product knowledge, as Jarod explains “Over the years – there’s been a significant lift in knowledge – which has benefitted our clients.”
