A new business has created a bit of a buzz in Kaikohe and hopes to gen- erate employment opportunities for the town. Cre8ive NZ-made Glassware was purchased and moved from Ruakaka to Kaikohe in June last last and has already made an impression. Managing director Ray Adams and production manager Matt Ayton say they were looking for a business that would bring employ- ment into Kaikohe. We wanted to do something to benefit Kaikohe and generate enthusiasm for the town. People have asked us why do it in Kaikohe and we tell them we live here, it's our community.'' The Station Rd studio manu- factures fused and cast glass objects with a distinctive New Zealand theme. We sell to gift shops around New Zealand and we export to Samoa, the Cook Islands, Australia and soon we'll be exporting to San Francisco,'' Mr Ayton says. The studio originally had a shop attached but just before Christmas Cre8tive took the plunge and opened a shop on Broadway. We really didn't get any foot traffic on Station Rd so we decided to open up on the high street and it's been really well received,'' Mr Ayton says. We created a special plate that we only sold in Kaikohe and locals couldn't believe it's made right here in their town. They were really excited to buy something Kaikohe-made.'' Mr Adams agrees: A lot of people were home for the holidays and were proud they could take a piece of Kaikohe back with them to Auck- land or Australia.'' The business employs two full- time and four part-time staff with numerous family members assisting over the holiday period. We hope to expand further and create more employment oppor- tunities for our community,'' Mr Adams says. We would love to expand into the Aussie market. There's real interest in buying quality New Zealand- made product out there so we believe the business is sustainable for the future.''
