Our partners and funders contribute to the life of the club and help keep things ticking over. Many of our projects, for example modern LED lighting for the squash courts, have been completed with the inclusion of partner funding. And in some cases the principals of partner businesses are long time club members who just want to help the club out more. So we encourage all of our members and their friends and associates to touch base with our partners for a no-obligation chat.
In 1934, the Barfoot brothers were joined by Maurice Thompson and in 1940 the business became “Barfoot & Thompson” as we know it today. From those small beginnings in Newmarket, we quickly grew to become Auckland’s market leader. Over 95 years we’ve remained steadfastly family owned. The current Directors – Peter Thompson, Stephen Barfoot and Kiri Barfoot – are the grandsons and the granddaughter of the original owners. Over the decades, the company has continued to grow, despite fluctuating market cycles, economic downturns, war times, changes in government regulations and more. Throughout our history, the families have maintained their integrity to make the company a success story and iconic New Zealand brand.
