Weathermaster Auckland opens new studio to enjoy with customers

By Janene Gillon, owner, Weathermaster Auckland

Weathermaster Auckland moved into our new studio in Lake Road, Northcote at the end of March 2021 What a three-year whirlwind it has been since I have taken over this distributorship, initially working from home on my own to now having a beautiful space to work in and enjoy with our customers.

Our team is made up of three at the studio; Janene (owner/sales), Kelly (office manager), Bridget (sales consultant), plus two contract installers; Mark and Darrin. We have a lot of fun working together.I have been in the industry for 25 years; working for the manufacturer of the products we sell, in several roles from customer service, key account management and laterally national training manager, all of which has diversified my skill set. 

I love being able to find the solution for our customer’s interior and exterior window covering requirements.  Automation of all our products is now the norm as our customers are wanting to operate their products by a voice command or from their device whereever they are. We have some amazing products to help with insulation. Whisper shades are so versatile, come in beautiful colours and offer a range of operating functions which include child safety features.  Shutters are timeless, adding value to any home and will suit all styles of houses from 1950’s through to today’s modern homes.  Outdoor awnings and drop screens are shading solutions to create the perfect outdoor space. The choices are endless with our huge Weathermaster product range, all designed to work and made to last.

Meet the team:

Bridget has recently joined the sales team and is enjoying all aspects of the role and is really becoming the awning specialist.  She is always saying there’s so much to learn! But she is certainly picking things up quickly and the customers are enjoying working with her in their homes.

Kelly is the one who nobody sees but does all those office/IT jobs that keeps us in check, pays the bills and generally someone we cannot do without.

Mark is our expert on interior blinds installation. He has 20 years experience so knows all the tricks to how all our blinds work, and a lot of our customers have had him visit their homes many times.

Darrin looks after shutters and the outdoor products he has been a part of the team for 18 months and tirelessly finds a solution to some of the trickier installations.

My moto is that customer satisfaction is paramount, so we work as a team to achieve this for our all our customers from the initial sales call through to the installation.

Our showroom is open by appointment only, but we are very flexible in making a time for your visit. We look forward to working with you in the future on any of your projects.
