As the Sales and Marketing Manager at Escea, I constantly keep my ear to the ground to learn how our products are perceived around New Zealand. Learning about how our company and products impact New Zealand’s economy is vital for constant product development and market awareness.
As a small country on the world stage, New Zealanders have to stick together in high value industries. Producing high quality, revolutionary, NZ made products keep booming industries, specifically the hi-tech, alive in our end of the world and do inspiring things for our nation.
For the second time this year, the Escea Danish interns ventured off into the great NZ outdoors to uphold Escea intern tradition. Beginning Friday night, the group started the trip in Oamaru, lounging, drinking, eating and sleeping under the stars.
Saturday was action-packed with activities ranging from tramping, investigating caves and biking through rolling valleys. On the way to Mt Cook they visited Elephant Rocks, Canyon Creek and whale fossils; stopping briefly for a quick dip in Canyon Creek – just a taste tester of what was to come (And they thought that was cold).
We’ve been incredibly fortunate with award recognitions recently, so we wanted to share with you just how and why we were chosen as a finalist for the Otago Chamber of Commerce OBIZ 2014 Awards.
With a loyal following of Escea customers and a continual striving to be the best, we have been able to produce and grow a fireplace range that is recognised around the world for high efficiency, ease of use, and remarkable beauty. While the fireplaces themselves hold these great qualities, we are also proud of the evolution of our brand becoming more than just a homely addition. We warm families and homes, and in turn create togetherness and a better place to live.
Just before you worry, these changes are only minor – the EF5000 fireplace will still be the same outdoor fire you know and love. In fact, these modifications are just going to make it better.
Escea fireplaces integrate with Control4 home automation system via Chowmain software.
In Dunedin, on Wednesday the 1st of October, many of the movers and shakers gathered together for the Deloitte Fast 50 Otago and Lower South Island Regional Awards. We were fortunate enough to be nominated for the list of contenders for the Fastest Growing Manufacturer and even more fortunate to be announced the winner.
As a regional winner, we now qualify for the national competition to be held at Auckland’s Villa Maria on Thursday 6th November.
The Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Awards, created in 1995, is a subset of the Fast 500. As a global competition, the Fast 50 is competed in at a country level in a number of places around the world. The NZ Deloitte Fast 50 is now in its 14th year recognising and celebrating the fastest growing businesses around New Zealand.
The Otago Daily Times featured us in their article alongside the other very deserving Otago winners. See the article here: http://www.odt.co.nz/news/business/317844/finding-business-success-stories
Thanks everyone for your support and let the story continue.
He’s no ‘Run of the Mill-er’ Architectural Advisor.
When we say “meet our Architectural Advisor, Richard Miller”, we don’t mean meet our ‘run of the mill’ Architectural Advisor, Richard Miller. Oh no. Similar to Escea, Richard hasn’t done anything by halves or in any ordinary way. So where do we start? Is it the packing Sphagnum moss or being a Chef for 15 years? Maybe living and working in Greece, the cucumber factory or the acid plant? If you are just as intrigued as we were, keep on reading because you definitely want to find out more about this fascinating individual and the awesome role he has here at Escea.
Home show season is still in full swing. Next week it is the Waikato Home Show, open from the 2nd-5th of October at the Claudelands Events Centre.
We’ll be there with our outdoor gas fireplace – the EF5000. The display will be built into a show home setup to bring the real feel of the fireplace to life. The EF5000 outdoor fireplace would make an awesome purchase this summer, so you can enjoy the outdoors all day and then late into the night. Just imagine: back yard cricket all day, BBQ for dinner, and a night cap around the fire.
We were proud to be a part of a project commissioned by the Dunedin City Council which showcased various businesses in Dunedin. The aim is to show the rest of New Zealand why Dunedin really is the best big little city to start and run a business from.
Check out this snazzy video created by fellow Dunedinites, Motion Sickness Studios.
We’ll be at the Auckland Home Show this week with four of our stunning fireplaces; our double sided DX1500, DL1100, ST900 and our outdoor fireplace, the EF5000. We’ll be hanging out at Stand 3 in Hall 8.
The show starts this Wednesday, the 10th of September and runs until the 14th of September at the ASB Showgrounds, Greenlane. You can head on in from 10am until 9pm Wednesday-Saturday and 10am-6pm on Sunday.
Our team at Escea would love to see you, so pop on in and say hello.
