Welcoming Exceed to the Belron NZ family

You might have heard the recent news of our acquisition of Exceed, a nation-wide window and door hardware repairs, and insect screen installation specialist. The Exceed acquisition was made official on 30 July 2021.

Smith&Smith® has been built on a strong history of family values and for this reason, Exceed is the perfect addition to our family of businesses.The more we saw, the more we felt that Exceed would be a great fit alongside Smith&Smith® and Laser® - being a franchise model, it’s a business model we know that we can support and grow.” Michelle van Gaalen, Smith&Smith® Managing Director.

David Dovey, Owner of Exceed commented “When we first met Belron NZ’s Managing Director Michelle van Gaalen, we immediately had respect for each other and knew our principles were aligned. We felt very confident we are leaving our business of 30 years in capable hands and know they will respect the principles that the whole team value and live by.”

We’ll be supporting the Exceed team with procurement, digital technology and marketing support - similar to when we welcomed Laser® in 2018.

Please join us in welcoming Exceed to the Belron NZ family.
