Grow Your Tauranga Based Business

If you already run a business in Tauranga, we don’t have to tell you what a great place it is, you already know. But when it’s time to take your business to the next level, Priority One is there to help.

Tauranga is brimming with potential for innovative, high-value, export focused businesses. We can put you in touch with other businesses – partners, suppliers, service providers or advisors – that can provide opportunities for yours to grow. And if you need a capital boost, a number of local and international investors have seen the growth opportunities in the area and are investing in smart businesses, lending money and buying shares.

There are plenty of research and development opportunities, which can help your business to expand. No matter what industry you’re in, there’s an R&D partner looking to take on a new challenge.

Of course, easy access to the port and excellent road, rail and air connections, make exporting an attractive option for growing your business. Priority One, Export NZ BOP and New Zealand Trade and Enterprise can work with you to explore your export potential. 

If you’ve outgrown your current premises, there are a range of options to consider. Over 500 ha of commercial land is available for development across the sub-region and at very competitive prices. Development of the Tauriko Business Estate is underway and, when complete, it will be one of the biggest industrial parks in Australasia, housing around 300 businesses.

Get in touch with Priority One today to find out about growing your business.
