When NZVAPOR started it was never envisaged that the impacts would be so far and wide.
In 2012 two brothers from Tokoroa who always dreamed of being in business together were introduced to their first e-cigarettes. Both immediately stopped smoking. The impact of their sudden ability to stop was so profound that they saw no other option than to offer this same experience to others… And so NZVAPOR was born.
After 6 months of researching and planning the business purchased its first e-cigarettes. 50 of them. Enough to fit on a small plastic 4 tier tray with wheels. All these products would be sold to friends and family. Of course an e-cigarette is no good without e-liquid so the business purchased its first order of e-juice supplies, again, enough to get off the ground and that was it.
Because of the personal cessation success that the brothers shared the entirety of the business has always revolved around supplying smokers with an effective alternative. But because of the positive change process that their clients were experiencing the brothers quickly became more passionate about their position in public help.
Driven by passion and the will to spread the love; it was quickly realised that to be functional the business would need to produce its e-liquids on a better scale… And a reliable supply chain… And full manufacturing plant... And a food grade production facility… NZVAPOR needed to expand its horizons!
The guys sold pretty much everything they owned (including the family home), scrimped and saved and finally managed to gather enough to invest in their very own e-liquid manufacturing plant.
The small business quickly morphed into a network that now operates in a number of countries around the world and is now an effective and reliable source for e-juice in NZ and around the world.
Because the manufacture process is fully owned and controlled; the contents of the products are also controlled. All e-cigarettes are purchased direct from factories and the company supports Smoking Cessation programs, Universities and Clinical trials… Not a bad business structure for a couple of local lads!
So if anyone ever asks you who we are? You can tell them: NZVAPOR are every day people.
