Expand Your Operations
Tauranga continues to be one of the country’s fastest-growing economic areas and a hub for innovative, high-value businesses. If you’re looking to expand your business, Tauranga’s ultimate bottom line – profit, people, place and potential – makes it a very attractive option for business growth. Priority One, the economic development organisation covering Tauranga and the Western Bay of Plenty, can help you explore your options.
Tauranga is home to New Zealand’s largest port by volume (with an annual cargo throughput of more than 13 million tonnes) and the most efficient port in Australasia. Businesses with an import and export focus can take advantage of being close to the port. It’s also near to Auckland and Hamilton with easy road, rail and air access, making it an ideal spot to base your business operations.
Businesses in a number of key industries have chosen to base themselves in Tauranga – food and bioactives, ICT, marine, manufacturing, logistics and R&D. There is a strong network of local business support and opportunities to partner with other successful businesses.
There are a number of affordable property options in the sub-region – from purchasing commercial land for development to moving into an established location. New office towers have been constructed in the CBD providing tenancy options for public or private sector businesses.
Developers have recognised the growth potential of the area – the Tauriko Business Estate is a 200 ha business park within 8km of the Port of Tauranga and will house around 300 businesses when complete. The Comvita Business Park at Paengaroa is at concept stage and once developed will be a magnet for like minded natural products businesses.
If you are looking to build your own premises, Priority One can facilitate Council and development applications.
Young professionals are choosing to settle in Tauranga and the area offers a strong labour force of both skilled and seasonal workers. Your business can attract and retain the best people, and at the same time, salaries and wages are competitive to support your business growth.
