Meteor Printers Limited
Meteor started in business in Wanganui in February 1946 as Fleet Printing Works and was first registered as a company on the 8th August 1949 as Meteor Printers Ltd as there was already a Fleet Printers registered elsewhere in New Zealand.
The Meteor Directors were; Sydney I. Edinger, Brian S. Edinger and Jack (Johnny) H.C. Brighton and included their Solicitor C.N. Armstrong. Shareholders were Noel W. Ruscoe, Alan M. Brown and David I. Duncan (Dunc).
The company Secretary from 1954 was Mr Sandy W. Dobbin.
In 1961 saw a change in ownership to Noel Ruscoe and Ian Duncan and in 1969 Warren N. Ruscoe joined the company as an apprentice printer.
In 1972 Meteor opened their Stationery and Copy Centre shop and in 1988 bought the ex McFarlane Hardware building and land next door and moved its stationery store there.
In the mid 1990’s Meteor joined the cooperative of Office Products Depot, a totally New Zealand business, owned by independent company members.
Warren and Jane Ruscoe bought out the remaining shareholders and are still the owners today.
In March 2015 they sold the Design and Print side of the business to Ed and Hinemoa Boyd at H&A Print and that side of the business moved there.
Meteor OPD (Office Products Depot) is still owned by Warren and Jane Ruscoe.
