Multitrade Building Hire manager Anthony Groen-int-woud and Young’s Building Contractors director Michael Young walked away with the honours at the Gladstone Engineering Alliance (GEA) Industry Awards last week.
The awards were held at the Gladstone Entertainment and Convention Centre after the GEA Major Industry Conference.
GEA chief executive officer Carli Homann said the awards were designed to celebrate the success of the central Queensland supply chain.
“Our local businesses have coordinated the delivery of word-class industrial projects and we wanted to promote the capabilities of those businesses and their leaders to keep the momentum of success going,” Ms Homann said.
Mr Groen-int-woud received the Forty Calis Memorial Award, which recognises an individual who has demonstrated an entrepreneurial spirit to gain business success in the engineering and support sector.
“It’s a real honour to win the Forty Calis Memorial Award and to be recognised for the hard work that my team has done by not only delivering all of our projects on time, but by making the business an overall success,” Mr Groen-int-woud said.
Mr Young received the Wayne Peachey Memorial Award, which recognises the achievements of an individual who has demonstrated exceptional quality in service or product.
“I’ve had the pleasure of knowing the Peachey family for many years and I feel very honoured to receive the award,” Mr Young said.
“This award really recognises the hard work that has gone into building the business to what it is today and it also recognises the dedication of my team.”
