1 Group's roots began in Auckland in 1993 with the founding Manager Mark Taitimu working in Direct Sales.
After 1 1/2 years of sales experience training people and managing marketing campaigns throughout the North Island he relocated to Christchurch and developed a strong team of 36 people in 8 weeks.
The company was incorporated in 1995 'JDI Advertising Ltd'.
Expanding offices to Dunedin in 1996 and Hamilton 1997 then Auckland in 1998 resulted in a team of 100+ people nationwide.
In 1999 JDI Advertising Ltd changed it's direction and diversified.
In 2000 JDI Web Design opened it's doors to a relatively new industry to us.
We added Graphic Design to our Services under the name of JDI Group which lead to projects for Coca Cola in Christchurch and then supplying Design and Print for their outsourced project's nationwide..
We renamed and rebranded to 1 Group in 2003 which represented the umbrella entity of all of our services.
The key to our growth and extremely competitive rates is our structure. We have some of the best people in their respective industries contracted giving our customers the best quality and value for their dollar.
" our clients pay hundreds instead of thousands of dollars for the same work"
We provide services to clients throughout NZ, Australia, UK as well as UAE.
With our international team we now provide 16 hour working days for our clients providing a more efficient turn-around at no extra cost to our clients.
In fact with further automation of our systems our prices will go down.
We anticipate by the start of 2011 we will be providing services 24 hours 6 days of the week again at no extra cost to our clients.
Where to now?
Well where can't we go and what can't we do is more of the question. Our team and skill set grows each year and hope to be seen as 'the' place to go for all requirements.
