Lifestyle + opportunity = the perfect match for Sam and Claire

The chance to live at the Mount while representing a company they are both passionate about was a chance that couldn’t be missed for Sam and Claire.

This couple are the new face of Johnson & Couzins in the Bay of Plenty region, having moved to Mount Maunganui from the company’s Christchurch base. 

“We love it up here – growing the J&C business and brand here in the Bay of Plenty while enjoying all the region has to offer.  What could be better?” says Sam Mackay.

Sam has been working for Johnson & Couzins in Christchurch since 2011 – with a two year break for his OE during which he met his Irish match in Claire Ivory.  Sam started in the Christchurch factory using his skills as a metalworker before moving to join the installation team.  When he enticed Claire back to New Zealand she joined the J&C team too.

Sam says when they were offered the opportunity to move to the Bay of Plenty to lead the J&C brand in the region, it was an opportunity they couldn’t pass up.

“I love the J&C product first and foremost as quite simply it produces incredible results for the customers.  I love it once we’ve finished an installation and we get to see how happy the customers are with the outdoor spaces that have been created.”

And as a Christchurch lad, Sam loves the Kiwi ethos the company represents.

“We’re one of New Zealand’s oldest companies – more than 150 years in the making – and have a history filled with a can-do attitude and innovation that has lead to J&C being a market leader in its field.  J&C offers a superior NZ-made product, designed and engineered for Kiwi homes.  It’s a pleasure to be part of the growth of such an iconic brand,” says Sam.

While both love the Bay of Plenty lifestyle, Claire does admit to finding it a bit hot compared to her Irish homeland.

“Yes the heat is a bit full on, but I’m coping!  And we’re managing to make the most of summer with lots of adventures and hikes in and around the region.”

To see how your Bay of Plenty home or business can be transformed by Johnson & Couzins’ superior outdoor solutions, simply contact Sam and Claire on 0800 664 083 or email sam@johnsonandcouzins.co.nz.
