The awards keep coming for Australian Innovative Systems (AIS), an Australian owned leader in the design, production and supply of commercial and residential water disinfection technology. AIS CEO Elena Gosse has taken out top honours this week winning the Gold Award for Executive of the Year – Manufacturing. AIS has also been awarded a Silver Award for Most Innovative Company of the Year in Asia and Oceania.
More than 3,500 nominations were received from more than 60 nations and territories in the 11th Annual International Business Awards which form the world’s premier business awards program. Winners will be honoured at a gala awards banquet at the Westin Paris Vendôme Hotel, France on 10 October.
Elena said that the awards were testament to AIS’ dedication to constant innovation, world-class manufacturing standards, exceptional staff and the company’s quest to create safe, economical and versatile products that help protect humans and habitats against waterborne pathogens and the transmission of infectious disease.
“In the past 15 years the World’s population has grown by over one billion people and global economic output has more than doubled. Earth’s finite water reserves are facing increased human and industrial activity impacts which means more germs and bacteria are entering the water which is bad for civilisation and the planet. We must keep our water safe and healthy” Elena said.
“As a proudly owned and operated Australian business, we specialize in the manufacturing of chlorinators for water disinfection. We believe our technology provides the safest and best way to produce chlorine onsite and inline via the process of electrolysis and is suited to a wide range of industries including aquatic facilities, resort pools and lagoons, utility water, mining and horticulture.
“Inline chlorination is not only convenient and automatic but stops the endless cycle of traditional chlorine dosing and the storage and handling risks associated with dangerous chemicals.”
Although Elena said that although she was honoured to be recognized for her leadership skills, she wished to pay tribute to AIS’ 60+ employees who work in a range of roles including administration, management, micro-electronics, chemistry, power systems, electrical and mechanical engineering, water system design, assembly, metalworking and plumbing.
AIS boasts a pro-multicultural employment policy at its Brisbane based headquarters and manufacturing facilities and Elena believes this also gives the company an advantage.
“As an immigrant myself I believe the advantages this brings to our business are great, including enhanced language skills, cross-cultural innovation, specialist skills and workplace harmony.”
In commenting on the standard of entries this year, Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards said, “We congratulate all of the Stevie winners in this year’s IBAs. The quality of entries we receive improves every year.
“This year’s judges were rewarded with the opportunity to review more than 3,500 stories of business achievement and innovation from around the world. We look forward to celebrating the winners’ achievements in Paris on 10 October.”
