This company sold direct to the Trade and through a handful of building supply outlets.In 1991 Sigma Agencies Ltd was formed as a wholesaler for on selling to building supply outlets.In late 1992 the company has been wholly owned by Kevin van Hest.
In 1996 Sigma’s name was changed to Elephant Plasterboard (NZ) Ltd.
In 2002 the retail arm (Rikki) was closed down so that we could support the general building supply outlets. There was very strong growth and support from other merchants once we left the retail arena.
We continue to distribute the Elephant Plasterboard brand through general building supply outlets and market the brand to the Specifiers, Developers, Housing companies and end users.
