Quantum Group was established in October 2002 with its first full container of porcelain and ceramic tiles arriving from South America. Months of market research and product analysis was finally realized, and wholesale distribution was underway immediately throughout NZ by both Brent and Larry…all from a minute 120m2 warehouse in Palmerston North.
The initial product lines gained market acceptance quickly, and although tiles were only just becoming accepted as a medium for wider use – Quantum was soon landing several containers a month from Italy, Spain, Portugal and Australia.
Supported by an established and loyal re-seller network nationally, Quantum is now one of New Zealand’s leading distributors of tiles with a number of containers arriving and being distributed every week. Alongside an extensive range of tiles, some product categories have joined the Quantum offering including the acclaimed Hydrocork LVT cork flooring from Portugal, and the Acoufelt brand of acoustic carpet tiles and wall linings.
With growth comes logistical challenges, and Quantum has more recently expanded into a new 3000m2 head office/distribution centre. Palmerston North remains a notable transport hub due to it’s central location and has facilitated Quantum offering a high level of service the construction industry requires, enabling deliveries into most parts of NZ overnight.
Quantum’s product range has been recognized, and now widely used by the architectural and designer fraternity, with a large HO showroom in Palmerston North and a dedicated space in Auckland. It has also established preferred supplier status for a number of national building companies through innovation, solutions and service.
Brent, Larry and Joseph all retain an active role in the business today, supported by a fantastic team of individuals all focused on the founding core values that make Quantum the great company it is today.
