Our Markets

We supply into all sectors of New Zealand business from agriculture, horticulture and forestry, to construction, manufacturing, production and wholesale trade.

During our long history we have also developed specific industry expertise and are renowned as specialists in packaging
and strapping in the following sectors:


Timber & Construction

We have developed a niche within the New Zealand timber industry and the downstream construction sector. This is primarily due to our expert understanding of strapping, strapping tools and machinery, and servicing. From this base we have also become trusted advisors for all packaging and safety consumables used in these industries – from timber wrap, customised films, marking and coding products, to safety, workwear, and personal protective equipment.

We also have decades of supply presence within sawmills, large format network stores, trade building suppliers, and frame
and truss sites across the country.

Food & Beverage

New Zealand is globally known for high quality food and beverage products due to our ideal growing conditions and our
clean, green environment.

RLB works with a wide range of customers and household brands across the industry; comprising processing, wholesaling and retailing. In conjunction with our local and global manufacturers we offer a wide range of packaging to protect, present, and move food and beverage products in a safe, cost effective way. This particular sector is very broad and this is reflected in the variety of packaging, hygiene and safety products we have to offer. We offer both stock and custom products and are able to support our loyal customers with inventory holding where they have limited storage facilities.

Meat & Fisheries

The New Zealand Meat and Fisheries sector has always been a principal driver of our economy, generating billions of dollars annually in export earnings and putting us front and centre on the global map as a premium producer and supplier.

RLB work with many of the industry leaders to deliver our leading products (especially strapping, machines and custom
plastics) and personalised service. Our goal is to improve both packaging and safety in the industry and help our
meat and fisheries processing customers raise their operational excellence.

Transport & Logistics

Many of the big names in these sectors turn to RLB for products and solutions that facilitate the safe and cost-effective protection and movement of goods. We understand the challenges and nuances that our customers face and we work closely with them and their staff to complete a uniquely tailored packaging audit and consultation.

Our experience and fresh perspective helps customers save time and money. For example, a core item within this industry is pallet wrap (stretch film). Our personalised ‘packaging audit’ service has helped many businesses compare the perfomance of their existing film with RLB’s films, and has demonstrated the guaranteed costs savings they can make.

Metals Industry 

RLB has been serving New Zealand’s metals related industry for over quarter of a century. During this time we’ve worked closely with some of New Zealand’s largest metal companies who trust us to exclusively supply their strapping, packaging and safety needs across the country.

We promote the highest levels of cargo security to ensure the safe movement of metal and metal related products domestically and internationally. Our experience makes the difference and inspires us to raise the bar in strapping, packaging and safety across the sector – from steel production, roofing, coil, reinforcing and stainless, through to distribution.
