Working with our partners

PAC.NZ is committed to providing members with opportunities to advance their business and people. We look for organisations whose work programmes and collaborative philosophies align with PAC.NZ's whole-of-life approach. Through our partnerships we can support members to access R & D, certification programmes, industry training, specialist advice and introductions.
