Testimonial Howard Wright

"After careful consideration, we decided on the Netherlands as our European base"

Howard Wright is a New Zealand based company that specializes in the design, manufacturing and distribution of medical beds and stretchers. The company was founded in the late 1950s and today has direct sales teams in New Zealand, Australia and the United Kingdom, with distributors in other markets.

To support their European expansion, Howard Wright was looking for a European logistics partner and a fiscal representative to setup their European supply chain. Howard Wright was introduced to the Holland International Distribution Council (HIDC) through New Zealand Trade and Enterprise. HIDC was asked to provide supply chain advice and to help find the best logistics partner and fiscal representative to support Howard Wright’s growth in the EU.

In November 2020, HIDC and Howard Wright began discussing steps to find a suitable logistics partner. Based on the requirements from Howard Wright, HIDC suggested four potential logistics partners. After discussions with the suggested logistics service providers, Howard Wright chose Jan Krediet as their European logistics partner and fiscal representative.

Bruce Moller, CEO of Howard Wright, states: “After careful consideration, we decided on the Netherlands as our European base because of its proximity to our initial target market of Germany, excellent infrastructure, world class logistics skills and experience and VAT deferment system.”   

“It has been a pleasure working with Jasper Eggebeen of HIDC who was pro-active and professional throughout our entire logistics partner appointment process.  After completing HIDC’s straightforward logistics questionnaire, HIDC identified a short-list of potential logistics partners for us to consider.  Following discussions and submissions from these parties, in Jan Krediet, we identified a company that was a great match to our requirements.  We have no hesitation in recommending HIDC to companies seeking assistance in finding a European logistics partner and/or a fiscal representative.”
