New Zealand owned and operated. 100% Kiwi and proud of it!

Basil Elstob founded the business in 1987, and grew from a small Christchurch-based supplier to the highly competitive nation-wide business we see today. Basil’s son John, who now owns the business, has maintained the family values and down-to-earth origins of the business. “We go the extra mile for our customers – and make sure they are delighted with our service, time and time again”. John insists that great relationships with customers, built over time, an in-depth understanding of the industry, and impeccable service are the success factors for SVS.
“We are the good guys for the industry – we look after our clients and ensure we consistently over-deliver to their expectations”.

SVS have a nation-wide network of sales representatives who are the everyday face of the company for its customers, experts in the business of providing to veterinary needs. Across all requirements – PARs, OTC medicines, consumables, equipment and instruments as well as animal feed – we provide the best products, always at competitive prices. “We get it there, the right products, the right time, the right place – count on it!” states John. “It’s our good name in the business that we stand behind.”
