Mitre 10 has been a part of New Zealand's home improvement culture since 1974. New Zealand owned and operated with stores across the country, Mitre 10 is a Kiwi success story. We are New Zealand's largest home improvement and garden retailer and continue to grow through both share of market and number of stores. Our trade business is also steadily growing with more and more trade professionals seeking to partner with us. To support this DIY and trade expansion we have expanded our supplier network in both New Zealand and overseas, steadily building upon our competitive advantage, great pricing and increased range for customers. We place a strong focus on customer service and staff training and are committed to providing the inspiration, advice, tools and materials our customers need to see their home improvement project through to completion.
The Mitre 10 brand is part of New Zealand's DIY DNA. Many New Zealanders have grown up with Mitre 10 and trust the brand so much so that it has been awarded the most trusted brand in New Zealand in home improvement retailing 11 times. That trust comes from knowing we are a locally owned co-operative that plays a valuable role in the communities in which we operate.
To give a little something back we are involved in many uniquely New Zealand projects, such as Trees That Count, Mitre 10 Community of the Year in the New Zealander of the Year Awards and the Neurological Foundation's Annual Appeal on top of many individual projects supported by our local stores to help their local communities.
