About Us

Composite is a well-established cooperative that has been operating since 1968. We were founded by a group of draper stores wanting to utilise their collective buying power to negotiate the best deals for their members. 50 years later this philosophy is still at the heart for the business. We have the collective buying power of over 200 stores through 8 divisions throughout New Zealand.
