Palmerston North is the social, economic and distribution hub of the lower North Island of New Zealand.
WE ARE THE MIDDLE OF THE MIDDLE MILLION
With approximately 1 million people within 2 hours drive, the city and the region enjoy a quality lifestyle second to none supported by the social and economic benefits of such a strategic central location.
The city and region are the leading home in New Zealand to many industry key sectors;
Education Defense Science & Research Distribution Farming Pharmaceuticals Manufacturing and more
Our workforce is highly educated and skilled, our property values are generally on the low side and our economic performance is solid and consistent.
We are a great place to raise a family, our city and region has some of NZ's best schools, we have NZ's top Polytechnic, NZ's largest University and a whole lot more. We are one of if not the safest and lower crime rate cities in New Zealand too !
All this and remember you are only two to three hours away from skiing at Ruapehu, fishing in the Sounds, Lake Taupo, a variety of great beaches on the East and West coast and some amazing adventure tourism. We reckon Palmerston North and our surrounding region is the very best place to work, live and play in New Zealand and probably the world !
