Feilding Businesses

Feilding & Manawatū District, it’s a great place to work and be in business! Connected and smart organisations who believe in prosperity and thrive on innovation continue to drive our progress.

Ours is a growing place; our economy, employment, population and standard of living, and the opportunities are constantly expanding.

The legacy of commerce in our town started in 1873 with sawmilling as our very first industry. In 1880 came the first trade of stock with the sale and purchase of 100 cattle in Feilding.

We’ve been helping to grow our country ever since.

Today our industries are as diverse as our landscape.

Home to the largest stock Sales Yards in the Southern Hemisphere, we are the agricultural mecca that has made Manawatū the food basket that supplies the nation and the globe.

Prolient, meat manufacturers and exporters, national farm suppliers and international farm machinery are in business in Feilding to service this important centre of the agricultural industry.

RNZAF Ohakea is a major employer in our district with over 1000 personnel and contractors working on base at NZ’s third largest airfield.

We have a strong force of locally owned and operated businesses including an army of trades and services helping to keep us humming.

Some of the global brands operating in Feilding include Toyota, Ford, and Harley Davidson. The country’s top two supermarkets, Foodstuffs' New World and Progressives' Countdown, both have large operations in town.

Fielding’s’ Ultra-Fast Broadband makes it possible for small business to compete globally and provides opportunity to work from home.

Real Estate, Food and Hospitality are major contributors to our economy too. There's a lot going on in our district.
