Beginnings in 1910
George Skellerup, a Danish Australian opened his first retail store in Christchurch, New Zealand on 12th September 1910, selling tyres and rubber goods for the dairy industry.
By 1939, three rubber factories, a wholesale distribution company and a chain of retail branches had been set-up. These operations were consolidated in 1948, when Skellerup Industries Limited listed as a public company.
An International Company
With its head office in Christchurch, Skellerup is the principal company of Skellerup Holdings, listed on the NZX Stock Exchange and now employs over 800 people in New Zealand, Australia, United Kingdom, USA and China.
