Our History

RLB was established in Wellington back in 1920 by our founder Robert Lorimer Button (RLB), a general merchant who predominantly imported products from the United Kingdom, Europe, North America and South East Asia.

Over the past 50 years our focus has evolved, along with

our customer’s needs, leading us to focus on packaging
and strapping products. During this time, we’ve maintained
strong relationships with our local suppliers, as well as
developing connections with leading offshore suppliers.
These partnerships allow us to offer a large product range
at competitive prices.

Throughout our long, robust history we’ve always retained
our founders’ spirit, priding ourselves on our personable
approach, integrity and customer focus. 
We’ve grown from a Wellington based company with a local focus to a national supplier with a physical presence in Auckland and Christchurch and sales and service presence throughout New Zealand.

Today, we remain committed to our fundamental purpose:
to become New Zealand’s most preferred supplier of
industrial packaging and strapping solutions in all sectors
of New Zealand business from agriculture, horticulture
and forestry, construction, manufacturing, production
and wholesale trade.
