Access Corporate Group, an innovative brand management corporation, has opened a new office in Auckland, New Zealand as part of the company’s ambitious international expansion.
The new office comes on the eve of the company’s third anniversary this month.
The New Zealand operation has a target to achieve more than NZ$100 million over the next five years and will be building new warehousing, consolidating its supply chain, as well as expanding its New Zealand resellers and operating infrastructure.
Led by Greg Macpherson, NZ general manager of Access Corporate Group, the new office will manage and expand the company’s existing New Zealand brands which include prized manuka honey brand Bee+, MitoQ and its newest brand Savar.
Founded by New Zealander Vicky Woolford in 2010, Savar is an ultra-premium brand offering safe and gentle natural skincare products for all skin types and are especially good for sensitive skin.
“It is an exciting opportunity for us to expand our business in this market and enhance our presence in the beauty industry with this successful New Zealand brand,” said Livia Wang, Australia and New Zealand CEO of Access Corporate Group.
Beauty and skincare brands
“Savar is a good fit for Access. We have a strict set of guidelines when considering new brands. We need to ensure the authenticity of ingredients, incorporation of technology and delivery of quality products, and Savar ticks all the boxes.”
Savar will join Access’s beauty and skincare brands which currently includes popular brands such as Dr. LeWinn’s, Hunter Lab, Bean Body, Minenssey, Napoleon Perdis, and Thalissi – each with a unique area of specialty.
In just three years Access has grown from five brands in its portfolio to more than 20 premium quality health, lifestyle, and beauty brands.
With “Everyday Better Life” as its vision, Access sees its premium brands as integral to the daily routine of consumers to help them feel good and become healthier and more beautiful.
Access set a sales record on its recent 6/6 Shopping Carnival, held from June 6 -18.
Gross merchandise value stood at nearly A$300 million – triple last year’s figure.
