Business Estate expansion attracting keen interest PDF Print E-mail
21 June 2019 - ADC - The prime location, ease of access to transport links and ports, competitive land prices and flexible options available at the Ashburton Business Estate have already caught the eye of dozens of businesses that have sought to expand or relocate their operations in Mid Canterbury, and with more work happening to grow the estate even further, interest in this prime real estate isn't slowing down.
The 80 hectare Business Estate on the northern end of Ashburton has become home to 23 local and international businesses since it opened in 2011.

The Ashburton District Council developed and continue to manage the estate, providing customised solutions for a range of businesses.

With the initial development (Phase One) now complete, the Council is now busy implementing Phase Two - developing the remaining land ready for more eager buyers and investors.

"Businesses are thinking about their next strategic step and what smart investments they need to make for their future. This is seeing scores of enquiries into what is available at the Business Estate," Council Business Support Group Manager Paul Brake says.

"We're rapidly progressing this next phase, and are already in discussions with a number of interested parties."

The Council is currently working with civil engineers to develop the land.

Organisations such as EA Networks and McIntosh Group were some of the first to invest in the opportunities at the Business Estate. 

They are joined by Ray Mayne Hose & Fittings Ltd; Kaipak Ltd; Precision Cutting & Processing Ltd; Tricroft Holdings; WaterForce; NPD Fuel Stop; Canterbury Long Run Roofing; Fineboon – NZ Dairy Collaborative; Cullimore Engineering; Skip-2-It Flooring Xtra; Fonterra; Replas; Midlands; Midlands Apiaries; Lemacon; Mainland Coachworks Ltd; Active Print & Production; Sebco; Plains Irrigators; Quigley Feeds NZ; and Hallmark Surgical.

Aside from its optimal position next to State Highway One, and its close proximity to Christchurch airport, rail and shipping port facilities, the Ashburton Business Estate offers some of the lowest industrial-rated land prices in the region.

The Council is also able to provide flexible solutions for business needs - whether they wish to design and build, or build and lease back. The size and shape of the sites can also be customised to meet specifications.​
