Christine Edwards



Hefin, born in North Wales, from the same neighbourhood where Ifor Williams Trailers are manufactured and he has a personal relationship with Mr. Ifor Williams, as did his late father.

Hefin has been in business in the UK for over 45 years, always with an Ifor Williams trailer behind his vehicle for use in the early days with the buying and selling farm tractors/earthmoving equipment. Hefin also built a successful UK business with the purchasing and retailing of large commercial trailers.

Being the furthest Ifor Williams Distributor in the world, the trailers remind Hefin of ‘home’ every single day!

Christine, from the Wirral, had a career with a UK bank before emigrating with Hefin to NZ in 2005.

Christine enjoys the daily variety from the importation of the floats and trailers from North Wales to showing and talking to old and new customers about the Ifor Williams product range. It really is a pleasure helping customers decide which model suits their purposes best.

James and his wife Claire grew up in Warwickshire and emigrated to New Zealand in 2010 after holidaying here a couple of times. They saw a real lifetime opportunity to bring a family up in an amazing country where you are able to access and enjoy the great outdoors lifestyle. They have 2 children Rory & Ava and a German Shepherd Amber.

James joined the business in 2011 bringing a wealth of specific Ifor Williams trailer experience and knowledge gained from years of “in the field” operation. As soon as he could drive, an Ifor Williams trailer has followed James pretty much everywhere, something which is continued to this day. Learnt from building and running a successful business in the UK, complete customer satisfaction is James’ No 1 goal, going out of his way to make every experience as pleasurable as possible. James will often say “we have the very best products available and continually strive to James & Clairegive and maintain the very best service”.

James runs the business on a day to day basis and is very infrequently away from his phone should you need to contact him directly.

Claire juggles her time working full time as a manager at the local hospital, organising the family and supporting James in the day to day running of the business.
