The locals love the Toyota Hilux. It has been the regions top selling new vehicle for a very long time. There is a reason for that. We live in a demanding area, and the vehicles we need to use on the land need to be tough enough to cope. The Toyota Hilux has proved time and time again that it is, that is why the companies that rely on it keep coming back. Click here to learn more about the all new 2016 Toyota Hilux.

Keeping it real this MOVEMBER and filling our hearts

Written by Media Manager.

At the heart of the whole Movember Movement is the desire to raise funds to be able to contribute to valid and life changing health projects. The chance to have a wider conversation about the need to stop men from dying too young by getting regular checkups. These are all very achievable things. We caught up with Nick D'Evereux the General Manager of Bowater Honda to chat about all of this. 

There is a real nice moment in this video so please watch it! 

The whole purpose of Movember Foundation New Zealand is to raise awareness and funds for men's health to go some way in preventing men from dying too young. That is why we do it at Bowaters. It's not all about the moustaches. Nick from Bowater Honda empties his wallet and fills his heart!

Kicking off another MOVEMBER with the 2016 team getting onboard and looking forward to the hairiness

Written by Media Manager.

We are doing it again, and taking it very seriously. Since the last time we MOVEMBERed properly one of our team was struck down by Prostate Cancer, so now it rings true a little more. Lets all get behind it and do it properly!

 

The lads out at Bowater Toyota's Richmond Branch are keen as mustard for this year's Movember Foundation New Zealand fundraiser. Some of them have shaved off facial hair that has been there for a very very long time. #movember #charity #bowaters

It's not just the lads at Bowater Toyota in Richmond stepping up to the plate - many of the others within the Bowater Motor Group are keen to 'stache up.

This year's 2016 Business Awards are a little different. It's a Civic thing.

This year the Nelson Tasman Chamber of Commerce are doing things a little differently.
This year Bowater Honda are coming to the party and providing a brand new, head turning, heart thumping 2016 Honda Civic for the Supreme Winner to have at their disposal for 3 months. 

It is guaranteed to be a big year for the 2016 Nelson Pine Industries Chamber of Commerce Supreme Award Winners. The addition of a fully signwritten 2016 Honda Civic to use for 3 months is certainly going to get their business noticed on the street's of our region. A very stylish mobile billboard is a valuable asset in anyone's language!

The team from the Nelson Tasman Chamber of Commerce stopped by to make this great video with Nick from Bowater Honda explaining the awesomeness of the additional prize.  

There’s never been a better year to enter our annual Business Awards. Check out the prize that Bowater Honda is kindly sponsoring for the 2016 Nelson Pine Industries Chamber of Commerce Business Awards Supreme Winner.

Are you ready to rumble? The Fight for Victory gets underway at Bowater Hyundai and Isuzu.

Written by Media Manager.

fight 4 victory

This November 5th will see the Trafalgar Centre rumbling to the familiar sound of excitement as the 3rd round of the Victory Boxing annual Fundraiser gets underway.

Bowater Hyundai and Isuzu have stood behind this awesome community event since the start, when our very own Chris Bowater, CEO of Bowater Hyundai and Isuzu, stepped into the ring with the then Mayor of Nelson, Aldo Miccio. It was an inspirational fight and much sweat was left on the canvas as these two stepped up and gave it all that they had.

It was only fitting then that Bowater Hyundai and Isuzu host the launch event for Victory Boxing's Fight for Victory 3 at their central city showroom on the corner of Rutherford and Hardy St on Friday 8th July from 5:30 - 7:30pm.
