Aotearoa, ‘land of the long white cloud’…That’s right New Zealand, look out, here we come!
Uccello are setting sail and Auckland, the “City of Sails” in New Zealand is on the horizon, with the first order of Kettles arriving on the 1st of March.
The Uccello Kettle will be represented and distributed around Auckland by Independent Living Service (ILS) through a trial partnership deal which will mean the Kettle will be in the ILS showrooms across the city, an online store and mobile van services.
It will also give us exposure to health and rehabilitation organisations around the country, including Arthritis NZ and the Stroke Foundation of New Zealand, as well as a national distribution network.
While our popularity might not reach the All Blacks status in New Zealand just yet, this will certainly help set the foundations for us. The partnership with ILS will give us exposure to assistive technology product suppliers, and the Ministry of Health and ACC (Accident Compensation Commission) which are the two biggest government funding organisations for the aged, disabled or ‘no-fault’ injuries.
ILS will also be displaying the Uccello Kettle at the upcoming Show Your Ability expo in Auckland, for more info about the event check their Facebook page and make sure you check it out if you’re in town.
And please tag and share with your New Zealand friends or family to help spread the word! With Gratitude… Uccello.
