After building up one of the largest residential building companies in NZ comprising of over 28 branches Nationwide it was sold to a private equity company 9 years ago. At the time the company had won more House Of The Year awards than any other company in the country. Rich continued in property investment and medium density residential projects. After the Earthquakes Rich could see companies inflating prices and blaming commodity prices and using the same underhand tactics of hidden prices. He formed Onyx Homes Ltd with a cost plus pricing structure and total transparency unlike all others.
