The Fletcher Trust Archive is a unique social and commercial history of New Zealand from the mid-nineteenth century to the present day and comprises records and information on an extensive number of businesses and enterprises across all sectors. The Trust’s purpose with its Archive is to maintain all the records and continue to provide public access.
