Ninety years manufacturing in NZ

Ninety years manufacturing in NZ

This year marks 90 years of the manufacturing of GIB plasterboard in New Zealand.

Since 1927, kiwi designers, builders, installers and stoppers have enjoyed the confidence that comes from using GIB plasterboard systems made locally for local conditions, which meet and exceed the requirements of New Zealand’s stringent building codes.

To celebrate 90 years of local manufacturing, Winstone Wallboards is running two major promotions during the months of September and October.


Web site promotion: 

Visit the GIB 90 year web site (click through to the link), answer three multi-choice GIB questions and go into the draw to win a $5000 VIP Sports Tour and loads of other great prizes (no purchase necessary).

Trade promotion: 

Purchase $500 or more of any GIB plasterboard or accessories from any participating GIB stockist during September and October and automatically go into the draw to win some great prizes.

There are 4 x $5000 VIP Sports Tour prizes up for grabs, as well as $45,000 of other awesome prizes to win.

Winstone Wallboards thanks its customers for backing GIB plasterboard for the past 90 years, and looks forward to working with them over the next 90.
