Unleashing the best of NZ produce and products to Asia.

Our Story

Where it started.

Eastern Bridge Limited is a New Zealand-based company established in 2015 by Simon Appleton. 

The company started by assisting New Zealand local governments to manage their international partnerships and sister-city relationships in the Chinese, Korean, and Japanese markets. 

Since then, Eastern Bridge has expanded its services to cover South East Asia and provide assistance to both central and local government departments, as well as New Zealand businesses looking to engage with East Asia.

Eastern Bridge Global Trade

Despite the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic, Eastern Bridge remained steadfast in its mission to connect Asian markets with New Zealand producers.

During this time, the company took the opportunity to reflect on its vision and explore new avenues to facilitate exports. With over $250m+ worth of trade and investment under its belt Eastern Bridge Global Trade was founded, a specialised importing and exporting division, with Wayne Xu and Lewis O'Donnell appointed as Partners.

O'Donnell was appointed Managing Partner and lead Eastern Bridge Global Trade's rebranding and corporate restructure, culminating in its transformation into a full-service Asia sales, distribution and sourcing agency.
