Gait Trading Company Limited was founded in 1989 by the Given Family, Ian and Jessica Given.
David and Debbie Given returned from overseas in 2004 and worked in the company for a number of years, which lead to the opportunity to purchase the business in March 2011.
Gait was first established in Auckland as a wholesaler of residential locks and latches to the building industry. It is one of New Zealand’s longest established and largest importers and distributors of door hardware and locksmithing products to suppliers nationwide. Gait was a pioneer company in the door hardware industry and remains a strong company in the market today. Gait has been sourcing manufacturing and industrial supplies from Asia and the South Pacific for over 25 years and continues to strengthen these sourcing supplies today.
In 1994 the company was relocated to Tauranga where a larger warehouse operation dramatically increased the range of products, and enhanced our customer service and delivery times.
Our customers throughout New Zealand and the South Pacific benefit from the steady and continuing expansion of our range of door hardware and accessories and our comprehensive range of door hardware and locksmithing supplies. We work hard to give our customers the very best service and we pride ourselves on finding suitable hardware and supplies for our customers.

Wholesale Customer Service
Gait Trading Company Ltd restricts its trading to Hardware merchants, aluminium fabricators, door pre-hangers, locksmiths and door manufacturers. We do not sell directly to the end user. Our isolation from the end user enables us to concentrate on supreme customer service. We stand by this, as we believe in fair trade for our customers and supporting their business needs.
Strong communication with both customers and manufacturers means we are influential in product development to meet the specific needs of many sectors of the building industry.
