The changing face of NZ manufacturing

The New Zealand manufacturing industry is a diverse, innovative and important part of the economy.  Contributing up to 12% of the NZ economy, it is vital to employment, adds value to agricultural products, provides business for many of our service industries and is a dynamic player in our regional economies.

The New Zealand manufacturing industry needs to be responsive to very short production runs and numerous changes in machine set-up, at the same time as ensuring high productivity, low costs and a fast return on investment.
