About the Penrose Business Association
The Penrose Business Association (PBA) supports and connects businesses in the wider industrial Penrose area. PBA lends its weight through advocacy; working across local and central government, to influence outcomes for local issues.
The district has developed significant manufacturing, wholesale trade, construction, and transportation sectors, and is a major contributor to GDP in Auckland.
PBA is proud to represent its members, who work from and are associated with, this important and vital commercial hub.
The Association offers its members monthly networking opportunities for local businesses, exposure to topical innovations and trends, and also hosts speakers of influence and experience.
“Joining PBA has given me a sense of “belonging” to the greater Penrose community. I enjoy meeting local business owners at events, the speakers are excellent, and the topics interesting as well as relevant.”
Ann Cooper-Smith – Q2 Limited Business Strategists and Chartered Accountants
“We never knew until we joined the Penrose Business Association how vital it would become in our ability to network with fellow businesses in the Maungakiekie region. The regular communications and events allow us to hear about important aspects of both council and govt legislation that can have an effect on our business along with the newest best practices and local trends. We highly recommend joining whether you are a sole trader or a multimillion dollar medium sized business”
Ray Pratt – CEO, Auckland Harley Davidson
“In good times, networking is important: In difficult times it is essential. PBA can assist every business, big or small, to perform in the best-possible manner. Good communication, great monthly events, down-to-earth membership. Just the best possible subscription for our business, working as it does in a busy industrial area.“
John Glenie – Managing Director, A W Gardner & Co Ltd
“The recent “Meet the Candidates for Maungakiekie” hosted by Harley Davidson was a great event . It was interesting to hear from Ray about the new electric Harley Davidson motor bike and the candidates were okay too. I really enjoy your monthly events and look forward to the next one. Thanks for the lobbying PBA does on our behalf with local and national government.“
