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.

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.

Once a family-owned business, Patton has maintained its core value of care for its people. Patton's success over the last 100 years has given identity to many past and present employees. Over our history, the best brains of the industry have used their remarkable talent and skills to fuel our mutual efforts; not only has the business grown, but we all have also grown with Patton’s.

Congratulations to Patton on 100 years in business.

Having seen the Patton team at work for the last 15 years it is easy to see why they have lasted and continue to go from strength to strength every year.

They have always been able to produce innovative new products that could be relied upon no matter what conditions they were being put into.

100 years is a credit to the DNA of the place and the people working there today should be proud of the tradition they uphold.

All the best Patton for the next 100 years.
