Working with the Industry Capability Network

Working with the Industry Capability Network

New Zealand’s Industry Capability Network (ICN) is the latest version of the old industrial supply office – it helps businesses get work on government projects. Shown here in Melbourne, at the launch of a New Zealand Defence Force offshore patrol vessel in 2006, are (from left) Lindsay Faithfull, chief executive of Whāngārei company McKay Electrical, ICN’s Richard Harrison and New Zealand Trade and Enterprise’s Australia trade commissioner Tim Green. McKay Electrical designed, built and installed switch gear and electrical distribution systems for the ship.
