The BNZ-Business New Zealand PSI for September was 58, on a scale where above 50 indicates expansion and below 50 contraction, which was 0.3 points up from August.
The latest reading puts the PSI at a monthly average of 56.7 for the year so far.
"Looking at the combined results for July-September, it shows that the sector experienced its highest overall level of quarterly expansion since 2007," Business New Zealand chief executive Phil O 'Reilly said in a statement.
"In addition, both new orders/business and activity/sales displayed results above the 60-point mark, which are key determinants for the overall result."
