Past winners of the NSW Mining Industry and Suppliers Awards are encouraging miners and supplier businesses to showcase their achievements in this year’s awards program.
This year the awards program has been extended with entries now open to companies and individuals in five categories:
- Outstanding Supplier
- Small Business Achievement
- Young Achiever
- Outstanding Contribution to Mining
- Mining Operation of the Year
NSW Minerals Council CEO, Stephen Galilee, said he was looking for entries from businesses and individuals that help keep NSW mining strong.
“We want to highlight the big success stories and recognise some of the industry’s hidden gems too,” Stephen said.
“It’s our chance to say thank you and recognise the people and the businesses whose hard work and achievements help to make NSW Mining strong.”
“We’re a small business with big ambitions. This award put us on stage in front of the state’s biggest mining producers and we’ve been able to promote our business as a leading supplier to the sector as a result,” Jamie said.
“I would highly recommend the NSW Mining Industry & Suppliers Awards to showcase your business and demonstrate the high quality of suppliers we have in NSW.”
HMS Group is based in Glendale and offer leading solutions to the mining and industry for every aspect and requirement. They were awarded the Small Business Supplier award.
Gill Eason from Singleton-based business Pegasus says winning in 2012 was an absolute thrill.
“It is always so much more special to be recognised by your peers as doing a good job,” Gill said.
“We really enjoyed the conference and the award really helped us gain credibility with new customers.”
Pegasus are industry specialists in safety management systems, WHS consulting, accredited and customised training and contract labour supply.
Entries for the awards must be in by Friday, 10 October 2014.
