n3 for the Manufacturing Industry


Let us improve your bottom line while you concentrate on your product.

Keeping your costs down keeps your business competitive. With our 16,000 Members and counting, your business can access a wide range of goods and services from New Zealand's leading Suppliers at discounted rates, everything from office supplies to fuel. 


1. n3 provides a mechanism for managing your non-strategic spend - the spend volumes you’re too busy to manage day to day, but over time add up.

2. By outsourcing your procurement needs to n3, our pre-negotiated contracts with Suppliers will enable your organisation to access great pricing without the hassle of doing it yourself.   

3. As a Member of n3, your organisation can pick and choose the Suppliers you trade with. We'll also report back to you your monthly spend and savings with each Supplier.

n3 does all the negotiating for you, so you don't have to set up deals with every one of your Suppliers. When you join, you'll have a dedicated n3 Account Manager to set things up and show you what to do. They will also help identify Suppliers you are using that could be linked to n3 pricing - getting you the same goods for less. 


On average, the Manufacturing Industry has saved $35,480* utilising n3 Suppliers.



"We've been members of n3 for about a year now. We joined because we really wanted to make some savings on our milk. We've got 230 staff and were spending about $14,000 on milk every year! By joining n3, we saved $3 - 4k just on the milk alone. Using specific suppliers helped us consolidate our supply list for easy management. I think joining n3 is a no-brainer and the paybacks pretty much within two months depending on the supplier you use. We've found $22,000 of savings which is pretty sweet."
