Export Lodge Veterinary Supplies - About

We are Scott and Rachael Stratton and we are the owners of Export Lodge Veterinary Supplies.

The business, originally established in the Waikato by Peter and Jan de Nicolo, has grown from strength to strength over the last 25 years. When Peter passed away, Jan wanted to make the most of every moment and decided it was time to pass on the business.

As family friends, there was a nice synergy with us taking over the reins. There was a smooth transition to the Manawatu base for nationwide service.

Now, we are growing the business, building on the excellence of what has gone before, reinforcing customer service standards and expanding our service offering.

Our business philosophy is like our industry – it is dynamic. The industry is evolving. We are alive to that evolution and work to support you, our customers.

Our complementary skills, business acumen and industry knowledge make us a great team to lead Export Lodge. We are taking strides to make Export Lodge a stronger, customer-friendly business.

It’s about making business easy for you – the customer.

Export, one of the Queen’s thoroughbred racehorses, came to New Zealand as a broodmare with the business’s original founders, Peter and Jan de Nicolo. They incorporated the name into that of the business. The horse has since passed but the name lives on.
