Testimonial from Design Junction Christchurch

Delivering Impact for Members

“Our local family owned business, Design Junction, has become a trusted name in designing and producing exceptional landscaping products for both residential and commercial projects. Since we engaged The Chamber, it’s been amazing how far we’ve come. Working with Daniel and John, we’ve been connected to industry specialists and even had a large national retailer come to our offices in Sydenham to view our products.”
