Lars and Shannon



The Van Uffelen picture framing business first started in the Netherlands with Mr Rob Van Uffelen. Then in 1985 he and his wife Grietje and teenage sons Kai, Lars and Niels immigrated to New Zealand.

The Van Uffelen’s purchased an existing picture framing business situated in Dahlia Street Palmerston North. In 1993, due to the ever-increasing business growth and workload, made the shift to larger premises in Princess Street where they continue to trade today.

Their sons each took a part in working in or on the business over the many years since. Each honing their individual skills. Lars took a particularly interest in taking the framing business to a stronger new level.

When Rob and Grietje Van Uffelen eventually retired the business was succeeded by Shannon and Lars Van Uffelen who continue to build on the same values.
