Barry Godfrey - Director

Kiwi Showers Director Born and bred West Coaster I was raised on the family dairy farm at Kowhitirangi, tucked right under the Southern Alps, 30km South East of Hokitika. This upbringing was my first taste of “do it yourself engineering”.

Being the youngest in the family there was no room for me on the farm so I worked for Westland Co-Op Dairy where I was a Butter maker. It was during the winter months that the staff then became maintenance workers. This was my first use of Stainless Steel Tube; little did I realise how much this was going to benefit at a later date.

With my love of the outdoors I eventually left to become a full time opossum hunter when the fur trade was at its peak in the 1970’s. Skin prices were phenomenal! This allowed us to purchase our own helicopter for this purpose. Not long after purchasing the helicopter the World fur trade came to an end as we new it. Ironically, our helicopter registration was HIV.

It was then I was recruited to join the Insurance Industry where I was successful in achieving a number of sales awards. It was during this time I started running and completed several marathons, many triathlons, and four Coast to Coast Events.

Thirteen years later I sold my Insurance business and moved to Christchurch where I was involved in Mortgage Broking for a short period.

It was about this time while we were holidaying in Nelson and using a conventional open wet floor
shower that the idea of changing the way a shower was designed and installed came to me. Sometime later a meeting with Duncan, who was a friend, and a plumber, the idea was thrown around.

The rest is history; Kiwi Showers Ltd was formed.
