Marleen Wholesalers Ltd. is a Kiwi family business that has been in operation for over 50 years. Over this time, we have developed a reputation for supporting our products from the very first moment we introduce them to the marketplace, right to the end consumer.

Our team of passionate people ensure great sales support information, product training and extensive after-market support plus fast and efficient delivery and processing of credit/warranty claims.

At Marleen we believe in excellent, friendly service and that our customers' needs come first - and that's why we are the Wholesaler of choice for a large number of stores throughout New Zealand today.

THESE ARE OUR ROOTS...

It all began back in 1968, when founders Doug & Jim first started out selling toys, models and bike parts, operating from their small corner store in central Christchurch. With a combination of Jim's wife, Mary, and Doug's wife, Eileen - the name 'Mar-leen' was born. 

Marleen grew and developed from a small local corner store, to a regional wholesaler that served the South Island of New Zealand. Another leap saw Marleen develop into a strong leading national provider of Wholesale Bicycle Parts and Accessories.

Marleen's ability to continually provide fast, efficient supply of product, along with stocking a wide range of Parts and Accessories, led to these dramatic changes over the years. As space grew tight Marleen shifted from that small store to a new office & small warehouse. From there it was to Addington with a larger warehouse with more room, then once more to Wigram, where we are today.

And although over the years business has changed dramatically, and the small corner store is no more - Marleen has always upheld the good old fashioned values the business was very first based on; friendly service and fast delivery.

PRODUCT & BRAND MIX

Our extensive range of products reaches over 10,000 lines. We are determined to be the one-stop shop for bicycle retailers in the general day to day workshop and retail requirements. We believe in supporting the broad product mix that every bicycle shop requires on a daily basis. Maintaining this broad range has led to the development of excellent stock control and product management systems to efficiently store and deliver stock.

In addition to our standard parts and accessory lines we are also distribution agents for leading brands such as Maxxis, BBB, CST, Park Tool, iXS, Evoc, Race Face, DT Swiss, Spank, Easton, Bellwether, Basil, Profile Design, Pure Sports Nutrition, 4iiii, Magnum, Hiplok, Kids Ride Shotgun, KMC, Nutcase, AMS, NiteRider, Kids Ride Shotgun, Joe’s No Flats, Urban Iki, Praxis, Pilo, Rock'N'Roll, SR Suntour, Sunrace, Tektro, TRP and our own in-house brand, Ontrack. We are also the Bosch eBike systems Service agents for New Zealand.
