About Us – Paving Slab Co. 2015
John and Lyndle Lister have been in business for over 30 years and have always made it a priority to stand by their brands and back them up with their motto “treating people as we would wish to be treated, with honesty, reliability and service”.
This has served them well in the past and will again as they embark on their new business,
The Paving Slab Co. (2015) Ltd
Having been involved in the landscape supply business for the past 15 years under the well known brand of New Zealand Landscape and Garden Supplies, the opportunity arose to take over The Paving Slab Co. as a going concern in August 2015.
The business has been operating since the early 1990s and John and Lyndle are the 4th owners during this time.
Taking on the new business is a little different from their previous and current enterprises as they have all been retail based, and this business is a mix of manufacturing and retail with some wholesale thrown in just to make it a little more interesting.
One of the key factors for them has been keeping the Production Manager, Bryan Trusler, on board as the co-ordinator of a great team of employees. Bryan’s technical know how is an important part of this business, and he will continue to ensure that all product produced remains at the consistently high standard customers have come to expect.
Cathy Brooks is the Sales and Office Manager and it is her job, together with Bryan, to make sure that all sales are completed within the stipulated time frame and delivered on time and in spec.
We pride ourselves on our ability to create a colour or texture to meet our customer’s requirements. We make more than just pavers. We also produce a range of one off ‘made to order’ products, drainage products, building and masonry products, and specialty ground and exposed aggregate products.
Please take a good look through our website and contact us with any of your questions. We will endeavour to meet your needs and as we always say,
“We will treat you as we expect to be treated”.

WHAT OTHERS SAY ABOUT US
Hi Cathy and team
I visited you a couple of weeks back to try and pick up some 600 by 600 pavers to finish off a small paving job outside my new sleep-out at home.
I wanted to email to thank you and the team for great service, advice and setting me up with very good prices.
I am very pleased with how the paving turned out and I will recommend you as an excellent option for all paving requirements going forward.
Thanks and Regards
Thank you for the great service and very helpful assistance. As mentioned we have been trying all over Auckland and almost gave up hope of getting what we wanted, that was until we visited you guys.
Thanks again and particularly Cathy.
33 Sudeley Street,
To: The Paving Slab Company, Neil Park Drive East Tamaki Auckland,
We have just finished the Paving around our pool, with the Concrete Pavers you supplied in a Terracotta colour.
In one simple word it looks “Amazing” and I’m sure it has added value to our home.
I spoke to one of your sales people Brian, around 2 months ago and found him to very knowledgeable about the product and its application. I went into the yard with a few preconceived ideas (from other suppliers) about what we needed, most were wrong and had we gone ahead with another supplier we would not have the finished look we have now.
Brian guided us through the process, of choosing the right colour, the right paver, the right size, and best of all he recommended a quality tradesman to lay the Pavers. We thought we wanted 600mm Pavers, Brian gently explained that we would be better off with 500mm Pavers because it would save us money when it came to get them laid as the tradesman would have to cut each Paver twice because most saws would only cut 500mm in one stroke.
The product was delivered on time and great care was taken with the product and our property. The Pavers were dropped off in two loads a week apart because we didn’t have the room to stack them all in at once. When Brian dropped off the second load of Pavers he spent a little bit of time looking at the project, and even took away a few Pavers that sneaked through the quality control. “You’re not laying these Pavers; they are not good enough for this job”.
While Brian was here delivering the second load he suggested we Seal the Pavers with a Penetrating Sealer, something I didn’t think about, and nobody else mentioned. We now have had the Pavers Acid washed and Sealed. It changed the whole look of the area, deepened the colour, and made the colour more consistent throughout. It all looks so good I was tempted to go for a swim.
I would highly recommend The Paving Slab Company, for their expertise, their knowledge, their delivery on time, and most of all their courteous customer care.
