The Nelson Mail reports on the Bowater Hyundai Move.

The Nelson Mail reported on our Bowater Hyundai opening held on Thuirsday April 3rd recently, with Marion Van Dijk  on hand to take some photos.
Following is their story as it ran in the Nelson Mail.

Pictured left: Chris Bowater hands over the keys to a new Hyundai i20 to Nelson College for Girls principal Cathy Ewing as a part of the school support that Bowater Hyundai offers the College annually.

Be sure to check out the right hand column where you can see other articles about the refurbishment of the new Bowater Hyundai showroom, as well as photo gallery's from the opening evening. 


Bowater Hyundai makes it's move.

A large turnout of Nelson's business community helped mark the move of Bowater Hyundai to its new central city premises, while its former premises down the road have been given a reprieve from pending demolition.

Close to 300 people, including Hyundai executives from Auckland, gathered last night in the new showroom on the corner of Hardy St and Rutherford St, previously occupied by Bowater Honda.

The group's Honda operations moved late last year from the corner site to new premises next to its Toyota workshop in Achilles Ave, off Wakatu Square.

Bowater Honda chief executive Chris Bowater said it was a great evening helped by an "amazing turnout", and a speech by Nelson College for Girls student Georgie Holdaway, who spoke about her adventure over summer on the sail training ship, Spirit of New Zealand.

Georgie was one of two girls' college students last year to receive a Bowater Hyundai scholarship to join the voyage. The company supports two annual scholarships to the Spirit of Adventure Trust worth $900 each, and the college selected the recipients, Bowater said.

Daryl Pritchard. A depth of experience & the voice of reason.


Daryl has been in the car industry for a long time, ever since he started as an apprentice mechanic for the Post Office's Workshop in Wellington, where he grew up.

We are fortunate to have him, and all of his varied vehicle industry experience, with us at Bowater Hyundai since 2010. He has seen the Hyundai brand go from strength to strength and has a depth of technical knowledge of the evolution of the range of vehicles. 

Daryl lives in Stoke with his wife, they have four grown children living as far afield as Wellington and Sydney. A proud supporter of the Hurricanes and the Lions, Daryl maintains his strong connection to the city he grew up in.

He is a strong believer in the Bowater Motor Group philosophy of giving back to the community and thrives on "the strong focus of ethical business within the company". As such Daryl is a strong advocate for the special relationships that Bowater Hyundai has built with community partners such as Big Brothers Big Sisters and Victory Boxing.

Daryl is an enthusiastic fisherman and says his lack of results has failed to deter him from his enthusiasm. Click here to contact Daryl.
