“I had the privilege yesterday of having a site tour of the Ruru Homes manufacturing setup in Green Lane (Motueka).I was very impressed to see the quality and spaciousness of their moveable homes, and their well-thought-through strategies and plans for helping to solve some of Motueka’s (and NZ’s) biggest problems around affordable housing.

Even more impressive are the ethics and values of the owners and plans – including using NZ materials and fitting wherever possible, using and training local builders on the assembly line at higher than normal rates, and providing apprentice training on full building skills.

They are now capable of turning out these quality homes at an astounding rate and have orders to keep them going for ages. I don’t normally rave on about particular business enterprises, but this one is particularly noteworthy in my books.”
