New Waikato Licensee For 0800 Sunshade


0800 Sunshade’s Waikato licensee, Don Buchanan has recently sold his business to Mike Atwood, who is Sunshade’s newest licensee. Don will still be lending a helping hand to get Mike started off in the right direction and to introduce Mike to his past customers.

Mike comes to 0800 Sunshade with nearly 20 years of experience in the industry, both in Australia and New Zealand. Most recently Mike worked as a fabricator of canvas products at Canvasland in Levin. “I really missed getting out and talking with the people who needed our products,” Mike said , “so I saw the opportunity to purchase the license for 0800 Sunshade and decided that I was ready for the next step in my career.”

“Mike’s experience on the fabrication side will add even more value to the customer’s experience,” said Don Buchanan.  “I am confident I’m handing over the business to someone very capable.” Don has been with the business for seven years, having made a huge difference to 0800 Sunshade in the Waikato area, and putting their name on the map while creating a large number of very happy customers with his approach to running his business.
