Written by Media Manager.

Z rutherford

Welcome to Z Rutherford - situated right in the heart of Nelson City on one of the easiest to get to intersections of the central business district. 
Conveniantly located on Rutherford Street opposite McDonalds in between Hardy Street and Selwyn Place, the entry and exit to this busy location is in between sets of lights so there is always ample opportunity to access and leave the Service Station even in heavy traffic. 


Z Bowater Motors Rutherford St - a part of our community.

Meet the Z Bowater Motors Team

Matt Morris - General Manager


Meet Matt Morris - the General Manager for Z Bowater Motors and the go to guy when it comes to all things to with Z Rutherford and Z Bowater Motors in Motueka. 

Matt started with The Bowater Motor group back in May 2005 as the manager of what was then our Shell Service Station in Motueka. Matt ensures that his whole team is very customer focused with one of his catch cries "The customers pay our wages" heard on nearly a daily basis.

All these years on Matt still enjoys the commute in between the Nelson and Motueka operations and was very happy when the new Ruby Bay bypass went in!

In his downtime Matt enjoys running & keeping fit, and has a taste for craft beers - but not at the same time!
