A Silverdale-based engineering and manufacturing company claimed the major exporting award at the Westpac Auckland North Business Awards 2011.
Modtec Industries Ltd took home the EasiYo Excellence in Exporting Award impressing judges with its potential for further growth on the back of its 41 percent sales export increase in the last three years.
A privately owned engineering and manufacturing company, Modtec provides design and quality solutions in zinc pressure die cast components, steel tube and powder coating products. The company designs and manufacturers Integ monitor arms and Apollo mounting solutions.
The judges liked Modtec's well designed and constructed product that serves a growing need in a huge market. They predict the company will become even more successful as it expands its export sales in Australia, North America, Singapore, China, India and the UK.
Ngaio Merrick, Manager Business Development - North for Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development is delighted for Modtec Systems.
"Exporting is the primary way the New Zealand economy is going to grow. It is fantastic to have a company of Modtec's calibre leading the charge in exporting," says Ms Merrick.
"It is a wonderful company that is set to achieve even greater feats in the future."
The annual Westpac Auckland North Business Awards celebrates excellence in the local business community and honours successful companies across 12 awards categories.
