Kia Ora! LabFriend laboratory equipment online launches in New Zealand



LabFriend launches in New Zealand offering NZ research organisations thousands off quality laboratory equipment

Australian based start up LabFriend has just opened www.labfriend.co.nz  offering New Zealand scientists and research laboratories a way to save on high quality scientific equipment, laboratory equipment and lab consumable items directly in New Zealand by shopping online.

The LabFriend New Zealand website provides customers in New Zealand looking for laboratory equipment an easy and fast way to shop for equipment online without the traditional hassles. New Zealand scientists will be able to take advantage of the instant quote functions, browse pricing, and Live Chat with LabFriend's customer service team without having to register or pick up the phone.

"We always planned to enter New Zealand. We just wanted to make sure that when we did we had our systems in place so that the researchers in New Zealand could enjoy the same savings Australian research organisations who have been enjoying for the last 12 months" said Karl Wyzenbeek, Managing Director of LabFriend.

Research organisations in New Zealand have experienced the price disadvantages that Australian research organisations endured prior to LabFriend entering the market in mid 2013. Over 360 brands and 30,000 products are available to the New Zealand market, and the site operates in New Zealand dollars to make purchasing straightforward.
 
"Our model is about giving our customers a local choice with easy to read information available" , says Wyzenbeek. The official launch date for LabFriend New Zealand was the 18th of June 2014, and Wyzenbeek says that they are already starting to receive positive response. "This is a really exciting move for us, and we cant wait to help New Zealand researchers begin saving!".
