Keep your finger on the pulse of the metals industry

On a monthly basis we measure the activity and performance of our metals industry in New Zealand. Achieved by using data provided by Statistics NZ on levied and imported heavy steel (plate and sections), welding consumables, stainless steel and aluminium.

From this data, we’re able to provide you an excellent source of information to identify trends and market share. And for those situations where the information you need isn’t captured – we take it one step further. Offering bespoke services to create custom reports tailored to your needs.

Find the knowledge you need to inform your project

Innovating in your projects or product development requires you to push boundaries.  But it’s a task difficult to achieve if you don’t have the right information.

That’s why our library offering exists.  So you have access to the technical resources and publications needed to inform you on the ground.  And as we explore new research and development topics specific to our New Zealand metal industry, our database is continually refreshed with content specific to today’s challenges.

We’re confident we can arm you with the information you need to make a real difference – and when we don’t, we take steps to find what you need.

Digitising our resource library

With the digital proliferation of technology – having information at the click of your finger has now become the norm.

That’s why we’re working hard to transfer all of our hard copy resources into digital form – so we can meet that expectation.  We believe it’s a step in the right direction, which not only means we can share information more easily – but quicker and more cost effectively.
