We’re excited to announce that we have changed ownership and will operate under a new name! Winc New Zealand is now Net Xpress Procurement. We’re the same product sourcing and distribution company you’ve always known, but now we are 100% kiwi owned.
Why the change?
In 2017, our parent company, Staples, sold the Australian and New Zealand arms of its global business to Platinum Equity, a private US equity firm. Soon after, we rebranded to Winc - Work Incorporated. Then in 2018, Platinum Equity purchased our top competitor in Australia and NZ, Office Max

Questions? Here are answers we've prepared already.
Access to nxp.nz
netxpress.co.nz takes me to nxp.nz. Why is that?
We want to ensure a smooth transition for everyone and have time to fix potential problems. Starting in May 2019, netxpress.co.nz became nxp.nz. If you have any links, bookmarks or shortcuts to netxpress.co.nz please ensure they are updated to nxp.nz as links to netxpress.co.nz will stop working in the future.
When I visit nxp.nz I get an error telling me I do not have access to this site, what do I do?
