Years have passed since the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes demolished much of Christchurch Central City and the surrounding suburbs and towns. During those years, Christchurch has suffered many hundreds of aftershocks, and the local council, goverment and insurance agencies are still working to restore the central city, amenities and personal houses.
Many Christchurch businesses suffered due to the earthquakes, with some being forced to shut down. Others, such as building companies have thrived from the sudden increase in demand for building work, new houses, businesses and subdvisions throughout the city.
One company that has managed to survive the Christchurch earthquakes is C.T.D Shopfittings. Based in Dyers Road Bromley, C.T.D Shopfittings are manufacturers of state of the art custom shopfitting supplies in New Zealand with over 40 years in the industry. 100% New Zealand owned and operated, the company ships their retail shelving, brackets, wall channeling, display equipment and other shopfitting supplies to Auckland and throughout New Zealand.
To many, the rebuild is happening very slowly. Many residents and companies have found that they were not adequately insured by their insurance companies, and are fighting to get the rebuild or relocation services they require. Many Christchurch residents still live in broken homes, garages or with friends and family as they wait to find out what is going to happen to their homes.
