In 1867 manufacturing was spread through New Zealand’s provinces. Auckland remained the dominant industrial area, with the most manufacturing firms (101), the most employees (1,041), the most horsepower used (1,165 – around 870 kilowatts), and the most capital invested (£246,400 – over $28 million in 2020 terms). Auckland would shortly be overtaken by Dunedin, its manufacturing lifted by the gold rush.
