MEX has recently been nominated for the Queensland Export Award in the category of Information and Communication Technology. This award was developed in order to recognise and acknowledge the success and innovation of Queensland’s exporters focusing in particular on outstanding export achievements in the field of information and communication products, technology or services.
NOJA Power Switchgear Pty Ltd won the 2009 Queensland Export and is a company of electrical engineers and contractors that research and develop, design, manufacture and supply low and medium voltage switchgear. Neil O’Sullivan, NOJA Power Switchgear’s managing director, contends that the public recognition that came with winning the state award significantly contributed to their largest order intake ever in the last quarter of the year.
Winners and finalists of the 21st annual Premier of Queensland’s Export Awards were revealed on the 21st October 2010, and Premier Anna Bligh was reported quoting, “We know that exporting is vital to Queensland’s economy and jobs. And we need to continue to look beyond our borders, to grow established relationships and develop new markets to enable our world-class industries to expand and create new jobs.”
