Australian air conditioning manufacturer ActronAir has been recognised in Deloitte Australia’s Best Managed Companies (BMC) awards. The 2019 winners were announced at a ceremony in Sydney last week.
This is the first year that Deloitte has held the first BMC awards in Australia. The program was established in Canada in 1993, and uses global insights and best practices to identify and celebrate privately owned and managed companies.
It also shines a light on the power of private business as a key driver of the economy.
Deloitte Private Partner and National Leader, Natalie Faull, says the company was proud to bring Deloitte’s established BMC global program to Australia for the first time.
“The judges evaluated the strengths of applicants across four key pillars: strategy, culture and commitment, capabilities and innovation, and governance and financials,” she says.
The companies that took out the awards included:
- ActronAir (HVAC)
- Alto Group (Automotive)
- InfoTrack (Technology)
- Intrepid Travel Group (Travel and Tourism)
- King Living (Furniture)
- Motorama Group (Automotive)
- Northern Territory Airports (Aviation)
- True Alliance (Clothing).
ActronAir Managing Director Norman Windell says it is reassuring that the most fundamental areas of their business measures up to stringent international standards.
“This is absolutely essential to enable us as an Australian manufacturer to compete successfully with the major multi-nationals in our industry,” he says.
Winners receive coaching from leading business advisers, networking opportunities and key branding and promotional opportunities over a 12-month period.
