About Us

Proudly Canterbury owned and operated since 1973

Business Distributors Limited (BDL) is proudly Canterbury owned and operated and has been servicing and selling photocopiers and printers for over 40 years.

Here at BDL we have built a reputation of being easy to deal with and consistently delivering on our promise of exceptional customer service. This promise is driven from our family values that are at the heart of the company’s operations.

Being family owned and operated since 1973, the business is still run by Garth, son Ben and daughter Penny. As technology has advanced over the years the business has evolved while maintaining an impeccable service record and long standing customer base. It’s not just family who stick around either, we are proud to say the average length of service at BDL is 13 years. This breadth of experience within the team ensures a high level of support and service for all customers.

When you become a customer of BDL we embrace you like family. Our culture extends into our community as well, being heavily involved in our community through sponsorship and donations to local schools, sports teams & charities.
