Council seeks innovative businesses for Ōtaki

Council seeks innovative businesses for Ōtaki

Forward thinking businesses looking to relocate to a growing and thriving part of the country should check out a state-of-the-art building up for lease in Ōtaki.

Council is calling for expressions of interest in the property at 2 Ake Ake Place, located within the Clean Technology Business Park, which is fast becoming a centre for innovative business in the region.

Council holds the master lease for the property, which is already home to the successful Entyre NZ rubber recycling business. Additional businesses are now being sought for the 936sq metre building.

The three units available provide a benchmark for commercial accommodation in the region and are available immediately. Built on strong environmental principles the property’s features include fully fitted out interiors, 100% seismic standard, wind and solar renewable energy sources and harvested rainwater captured on-site into large underground tanks. Lease packages are attractive and affordable and Council will provide business support for rapid growth.

Opening a recent Careers for the Future Expo at the site, Mayor Ross Church said, “Council is taking a long-term partnership approach to establishing smart, sustainable industries and jobs within our region.

“We’re very proud of what’s happening here in Ōtaki and looking forward to welcoming more forward thinking, cutting edge businesses.”

Mayor Church also noted the calibre of other innovative businesses already located in the vicinity such as Entyre NZ, Streetwise Coffee franchise, Hebe Botanicals, Silaca Glass Crushers Ltd and Blended Fuel Solutions.

Entyre owner Reiner Wenzel says, “The park is a new commercial business centre supporting businesses to run in a more environmentally-friendly and sustainable way, which fits in with our company philosophy.”

The Ōtaki area is known for great outdoor experiences on its doorstep including the Tararua Range, the Ōtaki River and coastline.

It is a thriving and growing Māori educational and cultural centre, home to Ngā Purapura, a new initiative in Māori wellbeing, Te Wānanga o Raukawa and the very successful Māoriland Film Festival.

Abundant fresh market produce including fruit, vegetables and flowers is available locally, along with artisan producers of cheese, olive oil, meat, breads, a booming SH1 retail outlet centre and vibrant arts and crafts sector.

The town is centrally located, close to Paraparaumu Airport and benefits from the Kāpiti Expressway construction are already being felt.

Council is looking forward to working with new businesses who share its vision, says Mayor Church.

“People who can see the benefits and want to be part of this thriving, smart coastal community will be welcomed and supported.”
