Gold Coast Business Excellence

VERVE Fitness | A Story of Success Setting Up in Gold Coast

On the 18th January 2019, Niall Wogan got the keys to an empty 632 sqm warehouse in Nerang:

 

....and worked alone in an empty warehouse while hiring staff and building the website.

 

 

With a core obsession on outstanding customer service and quality product, our business grew so fast that by July the following year we moved into a brand new 2,300 sqm building in Upper Coomera.

 


 

In September 2020 we started making Australian Made fitness equipment

 We are officially licensed by the Australian Made Campaign 


  

With 97% of our reviews great or excellent, we are the highest rated fitness equipment brand we can find on TrustPilot in the world

 

 

 


  

We aim to have most of our staff as athletes.

 In March 2021 we were officially awarded as a Great Place to Work by the international Great Place To Work organisation.

 


 

We are dedicated to improving our environmental sustainability

In April this year we planted 1,500 trees and we’re planning to plan thousands more trees. Here is team VERVE planting the trees. 

 

- We are developing new products made from recycled plastic
- We are switching our cartons to being made from recycled cardboard
- We are working on making our internal packing from recycled cardboard
- Team members are beginning to move over to electric vehicles to reduce emissions

  


In September we began exporting from Gold Coast and dispatched a container for a commercial gym fit out to Dubai. We are currently scheduled to export more containers for more international gym fit outs and are working on a Singapore gym.  


 

We are currently planing on launching VERVE in the UK in 2022.
