Changing a station. Shell becomes Z, but the service stays the same.

Written by Media Manager.

In March 2012 our Shell Bowater Motors Service Station started the process of transformation into a brand new Z Station.

The Bowater Motor Group has had a service station, serving the locals of Motueka since the 1970's. This new stage has been very exciting for us as one of the very few independently owned sites in the country. We followed the journey, recording it on "film" to document another important step in the Bowaters journey.
