COMPANY

Big Chill Distribution is a freight company that specialises in express delivery of chilled and frozen product throughout New Zealand. Their aim is to provide a professional image and a reliable service for their customers. With a fleet of 150 refrigerated trucks, Big Chill has experienced a rapid period of growth, leading to the need for a purpose built head office.

The new facility would incorporate both office space for their approximately 50 office staff, and a distribution facility in Highbrook.

THE JOURNEY
