Access Corporate Group Opens its First New Zealand Office

Access Corporate Group has announced the opening of its New Zealand office in Auckland, right before its third anniversary in July 2020. The opening is part of the company’s ambitious international expansion. The New Zealand operation has a target to achieve more than NZ$100 million over the next five years and will be building new warehousing, consolidating its supply chain, as well as expanding its New Zealand resellers and operating infrastructure.

Led by Greg MacPherson, New Zealand general manager of Access Corporate Group, the new office will manage and expand the company’s existing New Zealand brands which include prized manuka honey brand Bee+, MitoQ and its newest brand Savar.

Founded by New Zealander Vicky Woolford in 2010, Savar is an ultra-premium brand offering safe and gentle natural skincare products for all skin types and are especially good for sensitive skin.

“It is an exciting opportunity for us to expand our business in this market and enhance our presence in the beauty industry with this successful New Zealand brand,” said Livia Wang, Chief Brand Officer of Access Corporate Group.

“Savar is a good fit for Access. We have a strict set of guidelines when considering new brands. We need to ensure the authenticity of ingredients, incorporation of technology and delivery of quality products, and Savar ticks all the boxes.”

“We really love the fact it uses ethically-sourced natural ingredients that care for both humans and the planet, as well as cutting-edge technology that ensures production of skincare is of the highest quality. It’s a great range that will enrich the daily lives of our consumers and deliver our promise of ‘Everyday Better Life’,” she added.

“We’ll bring Savar on a new journey which encompasses skincare, homewares and travel essentials that builds incredibly close and dynamic relationships with our consumers,” said Greg MacPherson.

“Savar will be able to leverage the resources and technologies that Access brings to develop its product lines and expand its market, and, we believe, see its sales really take off.”

Savar will join Access’s beauty and skincare brands which currently includes popular brands such as Dr. LeWinn’s, Hunter Lab, Bean Body, Minenssey, Napoleon Perdis, and Thalissi – each with a unique area of specialty.
