SMRANZ has been representing the industry since 1968; we’re one of the oldest industry groups in the country. We know our business. Our members enjoy these benefits:

An annual AGM and convention
full voting rights at the AGM to have your voice heard; an event that is ideal for networking, learning from others and making contacts with suppliers to negotiate deals that will help your business grow

Subscription to our bi-monthly newsletter, The Metallic Link

Access to members-only resources
a monthly safety message delivered to your inbox and an Environmental Best Practice Guide are just some of the valuable members-only resources that will be available to you

Affiliation with a professional and recognised national association
to promote your business to members and the public and to help you when problems arise.  Our members tell us that their affiliation is particularly useful when they are submitting tenders for public and private project work.

Preferred supplier programme
access discounts and special offers from suppliers.  Allied Petroleum is the inaugural member of the programme.  They will bid for your business with competitive rates and, if you sign up, a monthly rebate on your sales is also paid to the Association to help fund our work and keep member subscriptions reasonable.  Win-win!  Additional suppliers are coming on board to this programme on a regular basis.

Publicity and media support

your business needs to be represented to officials when issues arise.  We regularly monitor activities at Central and Local Government levels to ensure our industry is represented.  Since 2015, we've made submissions to the Auckland Council, Justice Select Committee, Local Government NZ, the Ministry for the Environment, Christchurch City Council, Rotorua Lakes Council, Tauranga City Council, WorkSafe NZ, the Waikato/Bay of Plenty Standard Solid Waste Bylaw Project and the Whangarei District Council.
