Ever since our humble beginnings in downtown Nelson in 1945 the Bowater Motor Group has been very focused on community involvement. We believe that you are only ever as successful as the support that you can give back. It is with this philosophy that we continue to be as involved as we can be in the wider Nelson / Tasman community.
This section of the website houses stories, links and content from a collective of organisations and events that we are involved with or support through sponsorship or partnerships.

The Pinnacle Programme is all about inspiration. Taking our high achieving children and teaching them the pathways that lead to being the best version of themselves. Shining a light on those teenagers capable of achieving great great things, but doing so with full support and guidance.
Tuesday 29th August was a great day for all involved. It represented the next stage of investment for a room full of potential top of the south applicants, and gratification for businesses like Bowater Hyundai that focus heavily on supporting the community. It was a day packed full of inspiration and glimpses of the support and guidance successful applicants would get access to.
At the core of the Pinnacle Programme is Bernice Mene and her board; a dedicated group of high achievers that have personal experience in making it to the top of their respective fields. They know the hard yards. They have lived them. They also know how hard it is to succeed, and the help along the way that can completely change the outcome for an aspiring and passionate teen. With the help of Hyundai New Zealand they have put up their hands to help guide the next generation of future leaders into a bright future.
The day of events, held in conjunction with the always accommodating NMIT, served as a platform to hear from both Bernice Mene and current local Pinnacle Programme recipient, the amazing artist and leader Grace Wiegand. A chance to inspire. A chance to celebrate. A chance to embrace new opportunities.
Bowater Hyundai is proud to be associated with NMIT in bringing the Pinnacle Programme Ambassedor Bernice Mene to our region.
She will be here at an evening event on Tuesday 29th August at the G Block Foyer of the NMIT.
This is a wonderful chance to meet her, network with other businesses and community groups, and get to hear more about the inspiring Pinnacle Programme and how it impacts our youth and creates wonderful leadership growth opportunities for elite achievers. All are welcome to attend the event from 5;30 - 7pm.
The Pinnacle Programme is a unique scholarship, backed by Hyundai New Zealand, which provides talented young New Zealanders with the foundations for success. Our local youth have enjoyed success in applying for this scholarship with several having been on this programme over the recent years.
Bowater Hyundai is proud to be associated with NMIT in bringing the Pinnacle Programme Ambassedor Bernice Mene to our region. Tuesday 29th from 4-5pm is a great chance to come along and learn all about the programme with Pinnacle Ambassador Bernice Mene.
