Gladstone Industry Awards open for nominations

INDUSTRY in Gladstone will come together and celebrate the contribution of individual businesses and the central Queensland supply chain with nominations now open for the 2018 Gladstone Engineering Alliance Industry Awards.

Held during the GEA Gala Dinner at the Gladstone Entertainment Convention Centre on October 11 directly following the GEA Major Industry Conference on the same day, the GEA Industry Awards are presented to individuals and businesses in the central Queensland industrial and construction sector who demonstrate quality, leadership, innovation and exceptional customer service in their work.

Gladstone Engineering Alliance (GEA) CEO Carli Homann said the awards are designed to celebrate the success of the central Queensland supply chain.

“GEA started the awards in 2011 to showcase and celebrate the exceptional quality of the local businesses that make up the industrial supply chain across central Queensland,” Ms Homann said.

“Our local businesses have coordinated the delivery of world class industrial projects and we want to promote the capabilities of these businesses and their leaders to keep this momentum of success going.”

The Industry Awards are made up of three separate categories: the Forty Calis Memorial Award, the Wayne Peachey Memorial Award and the Industry Hall of Fame.

“Most years the GEA receive a really broad group of nominations that represent the diversity of central Queensland’s supply chain and we expect the same again this year as many Gladstone businesses in 2018 have diversified their services in line with the ever changing resource industry,” Ms Homann said.

The awards will be presented at the annual GEA Gala Dinner on Thursday October 11, following the GEA Major Industry Conference, presented by Aestec Services.
