Marton with its bustling centre, a five minute drive from State Highway 1 &3, and a population of over 4500 is the largest town and the heart of the Rangitikei.

The fertile soil and temperate climate has firmly established Marton as an agricultural centre noted for its cropping and sheep/beef farming.

With its ideal central location, and close proximity to both Palmerston North and Wanganui Marton has established itself firmly as an ultimate locale for large business. Corporates such as Gallagher's, Nestle, ANZCO, Speirs, Collagen Solutions, Alf Downs Group and Malteurop, New Zealands largest malting plant have chosen to base their businesses in Marton.
