Business in­vited to re­lo­cate to Taupo

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - NEWS -

If you’ve been pon­der­ing a business ex­pan­sion, re­lo­ca­tion or sim­ply a change of pace, then Taupo could be worth con­sid­er­ing.

Taupo has a strong and grow­ing econ­omy with low un­em­ploy­ment and a thriv­ing business sec­tor. The re­gion has an abun­dance of af­ford­able com­mer­cial prop­erty avail­able for lease or pur­chase, as well as sig­nif­i­cant tracts of un­de­vel­oped land ideal for those that re­quire a pur­pose built fa­cil­ity.

One of the main perks of bas­ing your business in Taupo are the af­ford­able op­er­at­ing costs which are lower com­pared to the big ci­ties – both rent and wages are lower and many other business ex­penses are the same or lower com­pared to the main cen­tres around New Zealand.

Taupo also of­fers you and your fam­ily the life­style you have dreamed of. It has the big city ameni­ties and fea­tures with­out the has­sle and stress of big city liv­ing – and im­por­tantly, an ideal en­vi­ron­ment to raise a fam­ily, “It is a safe place, with a strong lo­cal com­mu­nity and sense of civic pride,” says Kylie Hawker-Green, from En­ter­prise Great Lake Taupo. “Peo­ple who live here, love liv­ing here.

“We are com­mit­ted to rolling out the red car­pet for new busi­nesses in Taupo.

“We want to prove to business own­ers who are con­sid­er­ing a move here that Taupo is filled with great op­por­tu­ni­ties for business. So to prove it, we’re en­cour­ag­ing those con­sid­er­ing a move to reg­is­ter for a Taupo Tiki Tour. We’ll host you in Taupo for a day, in­tro­duce you to prop­erty de­vel­op­ers and land own­ers, dis­cuss your re­quire­ments, an­swer any queries you have and con­nect you with the right peo­ple.”

For those who de­cide to make the move, the ‘Wel­come Home to Taupo’ pack pro­vides a $20,000+ pack­age of ben­e­fits for those who are bring­ing their business to Taupo. The pack in­cludes ev­ery­thing you need to get your business es­tab­lished such as sta­tionery, sig­nage, print­ing, power, en­gi­neer­ing and plan­ning ad­vice, tele­phone and in­ter­net, mar­ket­ing, ad­ver­tis­ing, mem­ber­ships to lo­cal groups and even the mayor’s cell­phone num­ber.

A re­cent ar­rival, for­merly from Auck­land, says liv­ing in Taupo is like al­ways be­ing on hol­i­day.

“In sum­mer, by 5:30 I’ve fin­ished work, grabbed the fam­ily, and we’re out on our boat en­joy­ing a swim and a BBQ. Back in Auck­land, we wouldn’t have even got home by then, let alone got the boat on the car.

“We want our lo­cal busi­nesses to not just ex­ist, but to be boom­ing,” says Kylie. “We have so many strong busi­nesses here that are suc­ceed­ing at a lo­cal, na­tional and in­ter­na­tional level and we think there are oth­ers out there who’d like to do the same.” To reg­is­ter for a Taupo Tiki-Tour, or find out more about bring­ing your business to Taupo, visit www. greatop­por­tu­ni­ties.co.nz.
