Plastics NZ Branch networks are where local technical, business and Member issues are discussed and actioned for the good of the industry. Training and networking events are run frequently to assist Member companies to stay in touch and keep up to date with industry changes and developments.


The industry is represented by four branches across the country, in Auckland, Waikato, Wellington and the South Island. Committee members are voluntary. They, and their companies, provide this valuable donation of time because they believe that a thriving and growing NZ plastics industry is essential to their own business success.

Our Affiliates activities are also run out of the local branches. These activities are run for the benefit of the younger, or newer, people within the industry.

Visit our Events section to view upcoming activities in your area.
