The owners of Sticks Building Supplies Limited have led the business for more than 30 years.
Through that time, there has been significant operational change, to create what was once a
humble yard in Birkenhead with two staff to what it is today.
1989 – Greg and Monique Nash, in partnership with Monique’s father, Henry Rynbeek, purchased the small business and very quickly relocated to a new site at 14 Parkhead Place, Albany. At that time, it was known as Sticks Timber Birkenhead Limited.
2002 – Greg and Monique took full ownership of the business and renamed it Sticks Building
2008 – Sticks joined the Buildlink Cooperative group. This provided many benefits including
access to some new suppliers, plus the beginning of website development and support.
2016 – Josh Watts became a shareholder after 12 years of incredibly hard work, loyalty, and
dedication to the business. Josh’s role is extensive and pivotal in the day to day running of the
2020 – Under tenuous circumstances and strange Covid times, we moved into a newer, larger
property at 8 John Glenn Avenue in September 2020. The new site provided a 50% increase in
total area, plus a significant increase in covered warehouse and showroom space.
2022 – Site expansion and continued reinvestment remain the goal. The term reinvestment refers not only to plant, vehicles, and product, but also to all staff. Our sales team, our yard staff, our office staff, and our delivery team are our best investment, and we consider them all part of the Sticks family.
We have increased our staff numbers significantly in the past 2 years and are so very proud to
have a terrific group of loyal and hard working people with us on this journey.
In summary, the Sticks family wish to thank you for your loyalty as customers. We hope our
wonderful sales team are approachable and meet your requirements, they are here to serve you.
