After being nominated amongst a field of prestigious competition, Safetech was announced as manufacturer of the year in the medium business category at this year’s Victorian Manufacturing Hall of Fame Awards.
To receive this honour from our peers is especially rewarding. The Victorian Manufacturing Awards are judged by people involved in manufacturing and the winners are companies that have demonstrated sustained excellence in performance. It’s a bit like winning the players award in AFL or NRL.
The night is attended by manufacturers, manufacturing consultants and the government agencies associated with business development – all work in manufacturing and understand the challenges, the global competitiveness and what it takes to succeed in manufacturing.
Virginia Trioli hosted and our award for Best Manufacturer – medium sized business – was one of the 3 major awards – Best Small, Medium and Large Manufacturer. We were thrilled to simply be a finalist and I thought that would be it. To win was a wonderful surprise and made for a very exciting night.
It’s a team win – this award recognises the engineering and manufacturing excellence of Safetech over many years. Our focus on customers and delivering the best, most innovative products and supporting them after the sale is at the heart of our success.
