We are based in Hamilton, New Zealand’s 4th largest urban area and 2nd fastest centre of population growth. Hamilton (Kirikiriroa in Māori) serves the Waikato, home to the New Zealand dairy industry (the country’s largest export industry) and many of New Zealand’s leading agribusinesses. Education and research and development also play an important part in the growing economy of the city which is home to about 40,000 tertiary students and 1,000 PhD scientists. The region is responsible for about 20% of the nation’s exports and nearly 50% of its energy production through 11 power stations located along the Waikato River.
