Warren Fitzsimmons - Sales Manager

Warren comes from a strong background in the flooring & construction industry, bringing years of experience in NZ and the UK. Warren lived in the UK for 9 years during his OE and has travelled extensively around Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Warren is a great communicator, who brings practical thinking to any situation. Warren has quickly developed himself into an expert in the field of decking. His mantra is to put the customer first, and to always make sure the customer is kept informed along the sales process.
"At the end of the day, Customers want you to provide results. Our knowledge is 1st rate, and we can help design the deck for you, and provide assistance during installation, helping take the worry away". Warren is not one to shy away from helping a builder if he is stuck on a finer detail. “We are here to help, whether at the start of the project, or at the end. We are here to help"

Warren has two young sons, who keep him busy in his time off. But whenever possible he enjoys travelling and following the All Blacks on tour. Other interests include shooting and hunting.

Craig Nees - Director

Craig was born into the hardware industry.  The Nees family have been involved in hardware in Wellington for five generations so "it's in the blood".  Originally in retail Craig set up International Merchants in 1993. Craig recognised the great potential for composite decking and through International Merchants imported product from Canada.

In April 2008 Permadeck International Ltd. commenced trading as a specialist decking company and has since supplied many thousands of metres of decking to satisfied customers.

"We are constantly reviewing what we are doing and looking to learn and improve as the market develops" says Craig "we are focused on providing an outstanding product with outstanding service from start to finish and delivering outstanding value to our customers".

Craig's interests are his much beloved and growing family, making more time to play golf, keeping fit by running and maintaining his lifestyle property - always being sure to maintain hydration with a good brew!

Dave Elliot - Warehouse Manager

Dave is a vital member of our team.  As an experienced delivery driver he has a wealth of great practical skill and experience and is a great sounding board for ideas.
A significant challenge with anything as long and bulky as decking planks is the handling, freighting and storage.  Dave takes great pride in the neat, tidy and safe packing of all stock and his communication is excellent.

All goods dispatched from the warehouse are packed meticulously and all involved in the freighting and receiving of goods are kept informed of dispatch and progress. The only thing Dave takes more care of than his warehouse stock is his beloved wife Lesley, with whom he has been married for 37 years.
