At TradeZone Whanganui and TradeZone Palmerston North, we provide a huge variety of products to a wide range of customers. TradeZone Whanganui and TradeZone Palmerston North is a one-stop shop for all your engineering needs.

When we – Avon & Vicki McDonald – first started our business back in May 1990, we had a small engineering supply shop. Fast forward to today and we are now part of the TradeZone New Zealand group with an online store, a big warehouse-style shop in Whanganui and another shop in Palmerston North. We also have three friendly Sales Reps providing an on-road service in the central-lower North Island region.

To make things even more convenient for our customers, our well-stocked tool van travels around the Manawatu, Horowhenua and Wairarapa regions to supply all your workshop and DIY needs.
