Our History

Established in late 2000, Mackay Area Industry Network (MAIN) was formed by a group of like-minded business people, for the need of a common voice for industry.

Looking towards the future, the cooperative undertook a review of what the business does and how it serves its members to identify key areas of growth and expansion.

As a result, in July 2014 MAIN rebranded to Resource Industry Network, commencing an exciting new chapter for the business. The new name creates a new look, new direction and opens up new opportunities for the business and its members.
