STEELBRO New Zealand Limited took out both the Global Operator and Supreme overall award for medium/large enterprises at the recent 2007 Annual Champion Canterbury Awards.
The awards were presented by the Prime Minister, Helen Clark. The Champion Canterbury Awards are now widely recognised as the largest of their kind in New Zealand.
Peter Townsend, Chairman of Champion Canterbury Ltd. says the award recognises the innovation, tenacity and sheer hard work to succeed.
“STEELBRO is a very worthy recipient of the Supreme Champion Canterbury Award. As a multi-generational contributor to the Canterbury economy and a company that is well versed at competing worldwide with products that find ready markets in a myriad of countries, this is a well-deserved accolade.”
STEELBRO has developed a successful self-loading trailer (sidelifter) container handling technology. Claimed to be the world’s best-selling sidelifter system, STEELBRO exports the units to over 100 countries worldwide.
