Hastings Homes For Business


This is an exciting new Hastings initiative to satisfy an increased demand for short and longer-term use for dry industries that require a large land area but smaller building footprint. Irongate is suitable for general industrial and commercial use including cold-stores, logistics and warehousing and distribution.

It would be a great home for General wood/wood product manufacturing, textile product, and the broad metal product based manufacturing sector, other manufacturing activity, transport, storage, wholesaling and distribution of industrial products.

Located 5 minutes south of Hastings City, Irongate offers excellent access to Northern and Southern Highways, and as a new development provides new owners and tenants with Greenfield development opportunities.

Anchor tenants within the new Irongate zone include Sunfruit Orchards Limited, NZL Transport, and The Carr Group. Stevenson’s Transport have an established hub at Irongate for their operations and the Hastings District Council intends to expand the Irongate zone within 2017. Upon completion of this process, the Irongate Industrial Zone will also encompass the rigid plastic packaging supplier Waipak, packaging and processing icon, Tumu Timbers and Farmers Transport.





Although this is an established industrial area within the Hastings District, the area is currently being expanded and re-zoned with about 54 hectares of new industrial land scheduled to be released, and made available, during 2017/ 2018.

With wide road frontage options, the Omahu Industrial Zone is ideal for those businesses that need a higher profile such as machinery sales and hire, equipment and supplies used in industrial, agricultural, horticultural, building or landscaping.

It is home to global food processing giants McCain’s, Greenmount Foods and Bostock New Zealand as well as national and international brands such as Furnware, MetalCraft, Hustler, Hydralada, Fletcher Steel, Cable Price and Downers.

With easy access to all major arterial routes, and the city centre, the impending expansion of the Omahu Industrial Zone is an ideal Greenfield design and build location for businesses seeking flexibility or large format multiple options.

The Omahu Industrial Zone is supported with excellent infrastructure, telecommunications and services.





The 60 hectares of prime industrial land near Hastings offers many development possibilities. It is particularly suited to wet processing industries due to its highly advanced and extremely cost effective waste management infrastructure. It is one of the region’s most important business and employment areas.

Companies already at home in this zone include Silver Fern Farms, which is one of New Zealand’s largest red meat producers, and Apollo Apples, the third largest apple producer in New Zealand.

With options to utilise rail and road transport and the Port of Napier only 18 kms away, Whakatu allows its resident businesses to enjoy cost effective land and lease costs, availability of trade waste options on many sites and efficient transport links.

With 60 hectares of prime industrial land, zoned specifically to allow for a broad range of both dry and wet industry, Whakatu is fast becoming the location of choice for many internationally recognised brands. There are many development possibilities at Whakatu from Greenfield development to purpose built properties available for sale and lease.





This is a unique zone, on the outskirts of Hastings City, specifically designed to meet the needs of food companies. It sits on 22.5 hectares of privately owned land alongside the global food processor Kraft Heinz..

The Tomoana Food Hub offers design, build and lease options to food-related businesses of any size, allowing them to grow without tying up large amounts of capital in land and buildings.

The 22.5 hectare area of land can host any business operating within the food industry, from packaging to product development. The co-location arrangement allows for sharing of knowledge, resources and profit-enhancing efficiencies.

A number of companies have already come on board the Hub and are enjoying the benefits of operating in a collaborative workspace. Individual tenant needs are catered for in a flexible approach that fosters value-adding wherever possible. Full logistics and warehousing are available, enabling tenants to proceed with their core businesses without additional administration concerns. A site of this scale is rare in the Hawke’s Bay area, particularly with the additional benefits on offer.

An underground aquifer system runs directly under the site, offering a natural asset that is unrivalled anywhere in the country. The Hastings Municipal trade waste pipe runs through the property and is readily available for connection for wet industry operations of any scale.

Maintaining high quality surroundings, from landscaping to building, are a continued focus as the Hub develops, ensuring an operating environment suitable for world-class businesses.

Also in the planning stages, are two new additions to the Tomoana Food Hub: – a multi-tenanted innovation hub available for many agritechnology and food beverage companies and, adjacent to this, a toll processing facility.
