A BRIEF HISTORY...

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. From there, 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.
