Narangba Innovation Precinct (NiP) is an initiative supported by Regional Development Australia (RDA) Moreton Bay QLD, a collective comprised of various businesses located in the Narangba industrial and commercial areas.
This visionary collective is endeavouring to position Narangba as the Moreton Bay Region’s leading technological powerhouse through the development of a thriving, world-class hub of innovation, a state-of-the-art centre unrivalled by all other South-East Queensland catchments.
The Narangba Innovation Precinct (formerly known as the Narangba Industrial Estate) is quickly establishing itself as an advanced, environmentally sustainable
modern epicentre brimming with attractive job prospects for locals. NiP is progressive; embracing and leveraging the latest technology to ensure the area’s ongoing prosperity for future generations by fuelling the local economy through bolstering business investment, modernising the local industrial landscape through the creation of cutting-edge engineering facilities, as well as fostering collaboration and co-operation between the area’s stakeholders; small businesses, schools and the Narangba community media.
To continue its forward propulsion NiP has identified the need to adopt a sustainable governance and support model with less reliance and emphasis placed upon government funding.
Comprised of approximately 30 local businesses, the Narangba Business Group has been functioning in an informal capacity since December 2014. This collective has been meeting regularly and forming close-knit business partnerships to actively work towards elevating the profile and improving the performance of the Narangba Industrial Estate and in so doing deliver immeasurable benefits to the catchment area’s approximate 200 businesses, 2000 employees and 100+ apprentices and trainees.
This forward-thinking group provides a platform to facilitate interaction between all Narangba small businesses abiding by the ethos ‘collaborating to compete’ and striving towards addressing business challenges such as energy expenses, as well as working towards leveraging commercial opportunities including tendering to strengthen the local business community and position Narangba to seize future economic development opportunities as they arise.
The rebranded Narangba Innovation Precinct (renamed as of September 2015) is moving ahead successfully, going from strength-to-strength since early 2015 thanks to the collaboration of these former Industrial Estate businesses. Their efforts to ensure future job creation opportunities abound for the local Narangba community is bearing fruit and maximising the collective performance of this crucial Moreton Bay Region catchment area.
NiP recognises federal Government funding and the facilitation and support provided by Regional Development Australia (RDA) Moreton Bay QLD and Moreton Bay Region Industry and Tourism (MBRIT) is largely to thank for its onwards and upwards trajectory to date.
