“The folk at Ceracell bend over backwards to help. They carry everything I need from coated plastic frames, thermo treated wooden hive-ware, bee escapes and galvanised lids. Their volume prices can’t be beat. Thanks Ceracell.”

Jason Marshall (Commercial Bee Keeper) Warkworth







 

“Ceracell Beekeeping Supplies are a wonderful company to deal with.  Their service and products are excellent and they always seek to do their very best to meet your timeframes.  I have dealt with them over the past nine years and have never been disappointed with any part of their service or any of the products they offer. I would highly recommend them to any Hobby or Commercial Bee Keeper.” 
 
Phil Brown (Commercial Bee Keeper) Auckland




 

"Thank you Ceracell, for all the help you have given me over the last few years.  I appreciate being recognised as a customer, being addressed by name, and on a first name basis with your staff.  It doesn't seem to matter if it is someone working 'out the back', or the boss, the friendly can-do attitude is infectious in your business.  Great products, great service, great staff, excellent knowledge of a fantastic and extensive range of bee-ware, and now in TWO locations!  Ceracell, you guys ROCK!
Thanks again." 

Bob Nudd, Commercial Beekeeper, Thames.



“Received my half frames and boxes and I couldn't be happier. Thank you Claire for the superb customer service and thank you Ceracell for the excellent world class service. You are my number One!”

Adam Clevett, Beekeeper, Lower Hutt
