Fairy Springs Wash and Glow
We ticked off another milestone this month, launching our first touch-free Wash and Glow carwash at 63-69 Fairy Springs Road.
Using only soap, water and air, and no brushes, the touch-free carwash system is better for vehicles. We have three types of washes available depending on what glow you’d prefer in our ‘glow worm cave’: Ultra glow, Premium glow and Super glow.
Our first customer was local super-fan Nathan who loves carwashes. Nathan’s been keeping a close eye on our construction process and has been eagerly awaiting our opening. He was stoked when the team gave him a behind-the-scenes tours of how our carwash runs and even videoed himself being our first customer through the wash system.
Come on down and give it a go if you’re in the area. With a handy outdoor payment terminal, it’s easy as – just the same process as filling up at the pumps.
Fairy Springs Wash and Glow – 63-69 Fairy Springs Road, offers Ultra Glow, Premium Glow, Super Glow. Accepts EFTPOS, credit card, Amex and our Waitomo Fuel Card.
Fitzgerald Fuel Stop
We marked a major milestone for our business in December 2019, opening our first South Island Fuel Stop, in central Christchurch.
A market disruptor, Waitomo delivers competition and choice to Kiwi motorists wherever it operates.
Located centrally at 79 Fitzgerald Avenue, the new unmanned 24-hour Fuel Stop offers retail and commercial customers Unleaded 91, Premium 95 and Diesel. Early in the New Year, a Waitomo Wash and Glow touch-free carwash will also open on site.
Waitomo Group Managing Director Jimmy Ormsby says the Fitzgerald opening marks the beginning of a new era for the 100-percent Kiwi, family-owned and run business.
“A year ago, we announced our intentions to move our expansion plans south, having led competition and choice in the North Island fuel market. Kiwis on the Mainland deserve to benefit from the price competition we’ve been driving.
Mr Ormsby says it’ll take time for Mainlanders to get to know the Waitomo brand, but with several new South Island sites under way, their presence will be felt quickly.
“The opening means a lot to our team and to the Ormsby family. We’re a lean, low-cost family business, but we’ve shown we can deliver – opening nine new sites in 2019 alone. 2020 is shaping up to be a record year for us too.
“We may be a small engine, but we’re certainly punching well above our weight in the fuel market. Just goes to show what hard mahi and a good dose of Kiwi determination can deliver.”
Our Fairy Springs Fuel Stop opened in December, our second Rotorua site. Located at 63-69 Fairy Springs Road, the unmanned 24-hour Fuel Stop offers retail and commercial customers Unleaded 91, Premium 95 and Diesel. GoClear, a diesel exhaust fluid, is also available to diesel vehicle users.
As with all new Waitomo Fuel Stops, the pumps on site are fitted with vapour recovery systems.
We’ve received a wicked welcome for our second site in Rotorua. Jimmy and the Waitomo team want to say a massive thank you for all your support – we’re proud to be fueling Kiwis with our everyday low Waitomo price.
