If I was to follow corporate colours we should be partnering with a bank that is orange and black but we think the side track to blue is worth it. The Building Hub banks with BNZ because we have seen a strong commitment to SME's throughout the country and they are leading the field with innovative products to make your life easier. We have received some extremely usefull information from BNZ which we will be passing on over the coming year to help us all be good with money.

Anyone who has come to the Roadshow would have seen my Youmans Capsule and know this is the coolest capsule 'in the world', and not just because it was designed by my brother. They looked all over the world for manufacturers, but the only people who could cope with such a project were right here in NZ. Hamilton to be precise. You won't find a more stylish way to present your designs and plans.
