End of an Era

15 April 2024

Issue #1 of Rheem Offsite hit the shelves in June 2017. In its contents was the first tradie profile, the first of many fishing and hunting articles, and, of course, the very first Rheem double page feature – which quite fittingly focussed on that year’s Big 6 Challenge (a modernised version of which is happening in 2024). Six and a half years and 41 issues later, the magazine has evolved into a household name for tradies all around NZ. However, as you may already be aware, all good things must come to an end. This is the last issue of Rheem Offsite and while it’s definitely a sad day, we couldn’t be prouder of the magazine’s success throughout its tenure.

First, we want to thank the Offsite editorial crew who have put so much work into finding and publishing only the best tradie and outdoor stories. We always look forward to the mag showing up our office, and there’s never a shortage of keen readers. It takes a lot of hard work to create engaging content week in and week out, so we really appreciate the effort the team have put in over the last six and a half years.

We also want to thank all of the advertisers who’ve supported this magazine – even through pandemics and recessions and rising costs. This magazine couldn’t have succeeded without you!

Finally, we want to thank you, our readership. Every time we get a chance to meet readers at events or through competitions or in stores, it’s a real treat! We know how many supporters this magazine has had – both in print and online – and we can’t express enough gratitude for your time and engagement. 

If you’re a plumber who still wants to keep up to date with the latest Rheem news, you can head to our Instagram. We’re hosting a bunch of tradie training this year throughout the country and will be at all the major trade shows, so don’t hesitate to swing by and say hi. Until next time, keep enjoying your time on and off the site!
