Independent Bridge Stationery Supplies (IBSS) started as a small business that specialised
in the game of Bridge. It was setup in Palmerston North, New Zealand in 1992, primarily
to supply low-cost stationery to bridge clubs. The business grew steadily.
The business moved to Porirua in 1998 as dictated by a career move for Martin, who worked
with computer systems in a full-time role. Steps were taken not to grow too quickly,
with the support for customers
being the most important aspect of the business.
IBSS changed to BridgeNZ (registering as BridgeNZ (2004) Limited) specialising
in an extended range of bridge accessories and resources.
In 2006, BridgeNZ moved to Johnsonville.
The increase in demand for the products and services being provided created a need to provide
a bridge shop, which was open by appointment.
In 2008, BridgeNZ moved to 63 Keith Street, WANGANUI.
