Who is Stella Systems New Zealand?

Stella Systems is a family owned company founded by Gary Cooper in 2003. Gary left New Zealand some years before that to do as a lot of Kiwi’s tend to do and travel the world. He had become a proficient tradesman and found work easily while in Europe and began as an engineer on large yachts in the Mediterranean, this started the series of events from which The Stella Marine Group of companies was formed.

While in Europe Gary met the love of his life Debbie who just happened to be an Australian living in Perth and given the choice to continue in Europe or follow her home Gary did what any self-respecting Kiwi would do and settled in Australia the pair eventually choosing Brisbane as their home and raise their family of 3 beautiful girls.

The Stella Marine Group started from humble beginnings and it is only been recently that Gary has been able to let go of the original Stella van from which it all started. It’s true to say that Stella started as a van and a box of tools growing to now have two full service engineering workshops in South East Queensland delivering high quality services to Yachts from around the globe.

It was around 2007 that Stella Marine opened a supply and distribution arm of the company called Stella Systems and with the considerable growth of these last year’s Gary made the decision to take Stella Systems “home” to New Zealand opening in April 2015. The want to bring Stella Systems to New Zealand and the eventual opening of this office is a source of great pride for Gary and Deb; it brings with it the same commitment to service and quality that has been the foundation of their success.
