David and Scott explain their business philosophy

We both come from a professional service background and know the importance of service, value and trust. Our goal for the business is to deliver the best quality parts and best service in the industry, and along with our warranty, the best value.

To facilitate our goal we have put process and structure around the business and introduced regular training for staff.

We focus on adding process in the business in order to add quality to what we’re selling. If we do this well, we believe we can source the best parts and provide the best service.

We know we must earn trust by providing quality parts, managing expectations and standing by our warranty. Doing this, we know we can deliver the best value for you.

We believe in staff empowerment – giving the team the skills and ability to control their work environment. We set high standards and try to inspire our team to become the best they can be. As four time World Master Sailing Champion, Scott knows through personal experience that only with hard work can you be the best.

To this end, we don’t limit aspirations – we’re open to supporting our staff’s life goals because this is not “just a job”.
