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.


Resource Industry Network boasts a number of active members who regularly leverage our activities to improve their own business outcomes. The opportuniites afforded to these businesses often leads to successful outcomes and business success. RIN is currently producing a number of case studies and they will appear on this page once complete. Take a read of the two current case studies here:
