A leading worldwide manufacturer of load containment and protective packaging systems, ITW Industrial packaging is the latest company to join Auckland Airport’s rapidly expanding Airport Business District.

The global manufacturing company, which has nearly 100 years of history and business units in over 51 countries, is set to move into their new premises in the Auckland Airport Business District early next year.

“We are delighted to welcome ITW Industrial Packaging to the Auckland Airport Business District,” says Peter Alexander, Auckland Airport general manager property. “We are seeing more and more businesses making the move to this area because of what it has on offer including high levels of security, an extensive range of amenities and proximity to the Auckland region, to New Zealand and to the world.”

Paul Vyer, Business Manager at ITW, says the decision to relocate to the area was an easy one.  “The Auckland Airport Business District ticked all the boxes for us.  We are a travel rich business and this area is a rapidly developing location that provides great connectivity for our sales force to reach their local, national and international clients.  The Auckland Airport Business District provides our business with a proximity and location second to none that will improve our operations and be more efficient.”

ITW’s relocation to the Auckland Airport Business District follows on from the recent move made by CEVA Logistics to the area.  CEVA Logistics, an international freight and logistics company, will move into their new premises at the Auckland Airport Business District in June this year.

“International and local businesses alike are attracted to the district because of the multi-faceted benefits we have on offer here,” says Mr Alexander.  “Auckland Airport is New Zealand’s largest transport hub and the connectivity that this provides, on top of ever increasing amenities and high security, is a key reason why we are experiencing such growth within the Auckland Airport Business District.”
