AIS was rewarded for its commitment to innovation and excellence by taking out the Manufacturing Award in the 17th Australian Small Business Champion Awards (ASBCA) in Sydney on 18.4.15. The ASBCAs recognise the contribution that small business plays in shaping Australia’s economic development and culture.
Elena Gosse, CEO of AIS accepted the award in front of 1,000 guests at the Westin Hotel Sydney with the awards attracting over 400 finalists. Elena expressed her gratitude to the award organisers for helping to shine the spotlight on small businesses.
“As a manufacturer and small business owner I don’t think that we celebrate or champion small businesses enough in Australia. Small business makes such a significant contribution to our economy, and in the case of AIS, is also helping to promote Australian designed and manufactured technology to the world.”
Elena credited the award win to her team of 50+ staff members across AIS’ three, Brisbane based head office and manufacturing facilities.
