The Manufacturers’ Network (TMN) is a group of globally competitive New Zealand manufacturers who want to grow their business, and New Zealand’s economy, through collaboration, innovation and the exchange of knowledge and ideas.
Backed by 137 years of knowledge, TMN services are focused on leading the manufacturing sector into the future, through support, connections and advocacy.
From 1 April 2019 the delivery of services and support to manufacturing members across three of New Zealand’s most influential business networks have been aligned. The Canterbury Employers’ Chamber of Commerce (The Chamber), Employers and Manufacturers' Association (EMA) and TMN will now be supporting manufacturers under one umbrella using the TMN brand.
In Canterbury, TMN will continue to offer their existing services through The Chamber alongside Chamber services.
We will continue to focus on the most challenging areas for manufacturing, including technological change, automation, the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and addressing critical skills shortages in specialist manufacturing fields.
