from our directors, staff, customers and suppliers

Karl Burke

Managing Director | Beijer Ref NZ

To be part of such a historic achievement by a New Zealand company is such a privilege.

Patton’s 100 years of business is a huge credit to its brand, reputation and the people who have guided it through the years.

The way in which it has and is continuing to evolve through ownership and industry changes just demonstrates the core strength of the organisation and the strong support from all of its customers.

Congratulations Patton for 100 years of service to our industry.


Philip Hitchins

Vice President | Beijer Ref

To maintain the PATTON brand/presence for 100 years, is an extraordinary achievement.

Especially so in a small market in a small country open to lower cost competitor imports and global influences.

Achieved through innovation and understanding of the market, actioned by great people, past and present.

Congratulations PATTON, 100 years young.


Cameron Fearon

Congratulations Patton on 100 years of service to our industry. Not many businesses make it to 100 years these days. I am very proud to be part of this.

And for Patton to reach 100 years is due not only to having an awesome team of employees but this achievement would not have been possible without our relationship with our customers and support from our suppliers.

Thank you all, well done Patton.

Being new to Beijer Ref, I myself now have the honour of being part of such a wonderful company.  I am looking forward to my time with a company that values diversity, its people and has a culture to be proud of.

I wish Patton all the very best for the future, and I am excited to call Patton and Beijer Ref my family.
