Who we are?

At R&S Trade Centre, we operate within a small yet dedicated team of five star employees. Our path and drive to consistently up skill staff with the newest products prepares us for all types of questions and situations. As a result, we’re ready to answer any of your questions, queries and have the ability to solve all sorts of problems to keep you moving forward and getting on with the things that matter to you.

We started trading in 1990 from a small premise on Waltham Road in Christchurch before shifting a few years later to a bigger building on Orbell Street. We remained at Orbell Street until the earthquakes of 2011. Consequently, and like many others affected, we shifted to our new and current premises on Montreal Street. This gave us the space we desperately needed to keep up with the growing construction market in Christchurch which consequently has aided our beautiful city to thrive again.
