Dave Bright

The Team at DD Gold

David has an MBA from Henley Management College in the UK and a Bachelor’s degree in Biology, Microbiology and Zoology.  He started his career in local government with management of Environmental services and other areas of enforcement.  David has a strong personal interest in fishing and anything to do with branded clothing!  He and his wife Debra have been involved in a wide range of projects and activities in their 36 years together. 



We are totally committed to helping you have some fun with the images and words associated with your work, leisure or club activities.  We provide specialised uniform and promotional services, along embroidery, screen printing and a wide range of clothing, bags and other accessories.  DD Gold was established in 2004 and is based in Kerikeri and Kaitaia, central to all of Northland. We have over 2000 customers, located from Dunedin to Te Kao (North of Kaitaia!)


DD Gold has expanded considerably over the past few years.  We have developed a strong network with two strategic suppliers, the newest being ISC Lenco. We also provide project management for all your branding needs.  We find some of our customers want this one-stop-shop approach and we guarantee to match or better other people's prices.
