On Friday night I attended the 2015 Manufacturing Awards with Julianne Schwenke. Tech Vest Australia was a finalist and up for a possible 3 awards.
- Innovation Application
- Product Design Application
- Manufacturer of the Year
The awards were held at Wests in Newcastle and this year’s theme was “Grease”. The night started out with canapes and champagne in the foyer and mild chit chat with other contenders and sponsors of the night.
With great entertainment and food being served formalities were on the way and the winners of the categories were being announced and presented with their awards.
First award presented was the 2015 Incentive Prize. Sitting there at the table eating my entrée and enjoying the food; I then hear the winner is “Tech Vest Australia”. Up I jump and walk to the stage to collect the award and prize on behalf of Trevor and Tech Vest Australia. What a great achievement for the company.
Unfortunately Tech Vest was unsuccessful in winning in the above 3 categories this year but just making the finals is an achievement within itself. I was surrounded by some amazing companies with innovative products. Just becoming a finalist amongst this group cements that The Tech Vest Lite is innovative, unique and valuable in various industries and 100% made in our Hunter Valley factory.
