Craig Meiklejohn - National Sales Manager
Craig looks after national key accounts as well as the North Island as a sales region. Craig is known for his passion for his work, his loyalty to Stratmore and client alike. His open and honest manner, coupled with his practical advice have built long and lasting relationships.
His knowledge on site issues is second to none. But it is his ability to explain how systems and products are used that has been invaluable when presenting to architects and engineers. And this is vital, as it is a large part of how Stratmore gets its products and systems specified for key projects.
“Stratmore is a family-owned business with strong values. These values are very important to me because for over 65 years the Stratmores have displayed a “can do” attitude. Being able to solve customers’ problems and provide quality products and expert advice has been part of the business from the beginning. I enjoy this facet of the job and it’s great to see a problem being fixed and the client’s relief once we have taken the issue away.”
“I just wanted to say how refreshing it was to meet Craig Meiklejohn, your National Sales Manager. He responded very promptly to my phone call and followed up with a most informative email on your various products. As I had a few ‘’areas” of concern, I asked Craig if he was able to make a site visit. We met this morning and despite the rain, Craig and I walked around the entire site and identified many areas that need work, both aesthetically and for weather-tightness.
Companies always hear when things do not go so well … I wanted to let you know how helpful, informative, and knowledgeable Craig was. He is obviously truly passionate about his job and your products…and it was heartening and refreshing to meet someone like Craig…”

Rob Willems - Southern Sales Manager
Rob is Stratmore's Southern Sales Manager and his proven experience and way of working with people has resulted in him building a solid and loyal client base from Nelson to Bluff. It is with pride that Rob presents Stratmore’s high quality products to the marketplace. He also has a keen interest in promoting the range of waterproofing systems from Kryton International. Kryton’s unique crystalline technology has unmatched waterproofing performance and history.
It is Rob’s calm and practical approach that endears him to people. But he is not so proud that if he doesn’t have an answer he will “always ask a friend!”.
“I firmly believe that, where possible, it pays to get on site and visualise the issues so that the right solution can be given. I am convinced that it is this approach, as well as my practical experience and knowledge along with my long-time presence in the region that has resulted in growth even in difficult economic times.”
“I wanted to pass on my thanks to Stratmore for the service we received constructing the Taylor Pass High Reservoir. Rob provided knowledgeable assistance and made sure we received the materials and products we needed. We recently did the water tightness test on the reservoir, and it passed first time.
It was a very positive outcome for everyone involved.”
