Excellence in industry training will be recognised this month at the 12th annual Gallagher Rotary Industry Awards.
The awards have grown from small beginnings to include eight Waikato businesses keen to reward employees demonstrating excellence, commitment and skill in their industry.
The collar-and-tie event shines the spotlight on employees in the engineering, plastics, construction, plumbing, manufacturing and personnel management fields.
Event co-ordinator Des Meads, of the Rotary Club of Frankton, said the awards are an opportunity to encourage up-and-coming employees and give them “15 minutes of fame”.
“It’s about potentially rising up future leaders of industry. It’s about rewarding them for their hard work and giving them something to remember,” Des said.
The awards, a partnership between Frankton Rotary and industry, are expected to attract more than 150 people to Wintec’s Atrium on Thursday, November 11, from 6.30pm.
CF Reese Plumbing’s Aaron rink helped start the awards following the death of company founder Colin Reese, also a founding member of the Rotary Club of Frankton.
Other companies involved include TRT, Stafford Engineering, Success Personnel, Foster Construction, JPM Engineering, Convex Plastics and The Tool Shed.Back to News
