Auckland, Wellington not excluded from Motorola plan

Motorola says reports that Christchurch is the only New Zealand city to remain on the short list for its new research facility are overblown.

Motorola says reports that Christchurch is the only New Zealand city to remain on the short list for its new research facility are overblown.

“I wouldn’t count on that mainly because we’re constantly analysing the situation and will do so until decision time,” says Motorola spokesperson Russell Grimmer.

“The decision won’t be based on one factor — it will be based on ongoing factors like availability of skilled graduates and opportunities for collaboration with universities.”

Weekly business newspaper The Independent had reported that only Christchurch, Perth and Brisbane remain on the list, but Grimmer says he wouldn’t exclude Auckland or Wellington at this point.
