About Us

Katson Imports consists of the husband and wife team of Martin and Viv Napier and is based in the small trendy Wairarapa town of Greytown.

Katson Imports has been importing tractors, machinery and vehicles from Japan for the last 18 years. Martin has had a lifetime of experience with cars, being involved in motor racing from a young age. This lead to the move from predominantly importing tractors into cars.

After a request from a local customer for an electric vehicle, Martin was able to import a great EV for them.  Realising how amazing EV’s are, the focus of the business is now bringing more of these great vehicles into NZ.

We operate an on-line business from home, removing the need for a ‘bricks and mortar’ retail yard. With the lack off overheads we are able to import and re-sell at very competitive prices. We are a registered motor vehicle importer.

Importing requires a very good understanding of the New Zealand market but almost as important is a strong, trusted working relationship with suppliers.  We have operated with one Japanese family owned business for the last 17 years. Martin or our Japanese buyer will personally view and inspect all vehicles that we sell before they are sent to NZ.

We do not just import EV’s. We can import any vehicle you are after including petrol and diesel vehicles, hybrids, trucks, tractors and machinery.  If you want it, and we can find it and  will get it to you! Please feel free to contact us to discuss what you are after and then we can begin the process of finding your your next vehicle.
