The Passing of Bill Richie - Founder of Apparelmaster New Zealand

The Apparelmaster family lost a really great man in September this year. Bill Ritchie was responsible for bringing the Apparelmaster brand to New Zealand back in 1978. Some of our longer standing customers would have met Bill in the early years.

We were all very fortunate to have Bill with us in May this year to celebrate our 40 Year anniversary conference. Bill’s son Bevan who has steered the Apparelmaster Head Office ship for a long time now will continue flying the Ritchie flag along with his wife Susan.
