OUTSTANDING BUSINESSES RECOGNISED


Release Date: 24/10/2015
The Illawarra Business Chamber (IBC) congratulates all the winners of the 2015 Momentum Energy Illawarra Business Awards.
 
“The 2015 Momentum Energy Illawarra Business Awards was a sell-out event with 500 Illawarra business leaders coming together to celebrate the outstanding achievements of our local business community,” said IBC CEO Debra Murphy.
 
“Our local businesses and the hard-working people behind them should all be very proud.
 
Internetrix was named 2015 Momentum Energy Illawarra Business of the Year and also received the Export Growth China Excellence in Export award. 
 
Internetrix has placed the Illawarra firmly on the world map, and they’re leading the way for other Illawarra businesses to follow into export markets.
 
REMONDIS Illawarra was awarded the University of Wollongong Excellence in Business category because of their impressive results over the past year.
 
“The judges were particularly impressed by REMONDIS Illawarra’s new client acquisitions, profitability growth and safety record.
 
Andrew Webb Family & Business Accounting is a back-to-back Momentum Energy Illawarra Business Award winner. Last year Andrew Webb Family & Business Accounting took out the New Illawarra Business award and this year won the Illawarra Mercury Excellence in Small Business award.
 
Andrew Webb Family & Business Accounting is a relatively new Illawarra business doing amazing things. Since their inception in 2013, the company has experienced massive growth from zero to 500 clients.
 
The alignment of the Illawarra and NSW Business Awards means that eleven of the fifteen Illawarra category winners now progress through as finalists in the NSW Business Chamber’s Awards in November.  This provides our regional winners with state-wide recognition and promotion.
 
“The line-up of finalists and winners showcased the strength, diversity and quality of businesses from across the Illawarra. We applaud all the winners and finalists who have achieved excellence and success in their chosen fields,” said Ms Murphy.
