Our support of the local New Zealand community starts with our commitment to keeping our manufacturing here in New Zealand.
Being local means that when we have a job to be done, we give it to a Kiwi.
It also means that when you buy Ultimo, your money stays here, circulating in the New Zealand economy.
We are proud to support New Zealand events, athletes and good causes.
As part of our ongoing support of up and coming Kiwi cyclists, we proudly support the Cycling CHB Junior Tour.
There's great racing in fantastic countryside - it's an event worth checking out.
There's also the chance to go home with pride of winning a Leader's or King of the Mountain jersey.
