Following the announcement from the Prime Minister that the greater Auckland region will be re-entering Alert Level 3 and the rest of New Zealand will be re-entering Alert Level 2 at midday 12 August 2020 until midnight this Friday 14 August 2020, we will re-establish the protocols we operated under when the country was last at these alert levels.

Our operating procedures are designed to keep our teams, customers, and communities safe and it’s vital that we continue to maintain these under the designated alert levels.

Thank you New Zealand for your support and uniting against COVID-19.  We’ll continue to work alongside our customers, to support our rural businesses and communities during Alert Level 1.

Supporting you during COVID-19

01 January 2021

At PGG Wrightson the wellbeing of our customers, staff and suppliers is paramount. Here's what we are doing in response to COVID-19 as a global pandemic.

‘Helping grow the country’ is our vision, it is at the heart of what we do, and this remains the case in times of challenge and adversity. Our thoughts are with those who have been affected by COVID-19, and we want to do what we can to continue to support our customers and communities and to do our part to help minimise the impacts of the virus.

We continue to develop our response as matters develop and official information comes to hand, and we are doing what we can to ensure our stores and other locations are a safe place to work and visit.

Ways of working and our interactions

We have reassessed how we interact internally and with our customers, and have asked our staff to be extra mindful of good hygiene and adopt recommended protocols. We are encouraging the use of our technology platforms where practical to limit staff travel and gatherings. We also offer alternative ways to purchase products through our online store and trading of livestock on bidr®.

Supply chain

While there has been disruption in international supply chains across a number of industries, we are working hard with our suppliers to try and minimise supply issues for you. We would encourage you to plan ahead and think about essential inputs in advance so we can prepare for any international supply chain issues that might arise.

Keeping you informed

We have business continuity plans to deal with potential disruptions and events that may arise. We will provide regular updates on our website and Facebook page as matters develop.

PGW is committed to supporting our customers through this challenging period and beyond. We will continue to take practical and considered measures in the way we manage our stores and other work locations, and in our interactions with you. The pandemic is a major global event and we wish to reassure our customers and stakeholders that PGW will do what it can to prepare and respond to challenges that emerge.
