Nau mai, haere mai. A warm Kiwi welcome to Waitomo

A warm Kiwi welcome

Since 1947, our 100-percent Kiwi, family-owned and operated business has been fueling Kiwis across New Zealand. Whether you own a business, or just need to fuel up your vehicle, we have the solution for you. Based in the heart of the Waikato in Hamilton, we operate more than 65 Fuel Stops and Diesel Stops stretching from Paihia to the Christchurch. Market disruptors, we deliver competition and choice to Kiwi motorists.

We also provide bulk fuel supply, onsite diesel supply and fuel and oil storage solutions. Our Waitomo Fuel Cards give Kiwi businesses’ access to tailored commercial rates or our pump price – whichever is lowest.

Seventy years on, we’re proud to be serving our Kiwi customers with the same formula we always have – great people, top performance and a fairer price for your fuel.

If you’d like to join our journey, we’d love to hear from you.

Waitomo wave hitting Whangamata

Waitomo Group is making waves in Whangamata, bringing much-needed fuel price competition and choice to the iconic Coromandel beach town with the opening of its Whangamata Fuel Stop.

A market disruptor, the family-owned and operated Kiwi business is committed to delivering fairer fuel prices to New Zealanders, and is currently in national expansion mode, opening 10 new sites in the last year.

Located on Casement Road, the unmanned 24-hour Fuel Stop offers retail and commercial customers Unleaded 91, Premium 95 and Diesel. The site officially opened at 10am, Monday 25 May.

Managing Director Jimmy Ormsby said the opening of the Whangamata Fuel Stop is especially poignant in light of Covid-19 and its impact on Kiwis.

“Lockdown had a massive impact on our construction plans for new sites, but the team ramped up quickly in alert level 3, so it’s wicked to be delivering the Coromandel’s first major project post-Covid.

“Kiwis across the country have had their livelihoods, their work, their family lives and their health impacted by the Covid-19 crisis. Hard mahi from everyone has saved lives, but there’s plenty more work to do as we face the economic impact ahead.

“By keeping our own costs low, we can pass on a fairer price to our customers, meaning much-needed money back in their pockets to spend on other necessities like food, power and rent.

“The Coromandel community is not immune to the Covid-19 impacts, so we’re stoked to be able to add another Waitomo site to the region, along with our existing sites in Hikuai and Tapu.”

“Ever since we announced we were coming to Whangamata, the local support has been wicked. Our Waitomo Team is stoked to reach this milestone, despite the current circumstances. While safety requirements and physical distancing means we can’t hold a big opening right now, we look forward to celebrating at Beach Hop later in the year.”
