Hetech Attends Defence Connect Australian Industry Awards 2019
On September 26, Hetech had the privilege of attending the Australian Defence Industry Awards, the self-described industry event of the year. This black tie event was held at Canberra’s Australian Institute of Sport, and brought together some of the most illustrious names in Australia’s defence industry.
The purpose of the Defence Connect was to acknowledge and recognize the outstanding work of many of Australia’s defence industry professionals. Rather than focusing on products or platforms, these awards recognize the stakeholders themselves, from academic institutions to defence executives and beyond.
Any Australian business working within any part of the defence supply chain was eligible for nomination, and Hetech was honored to rank as a finalist in two of the award categories:
- Manufacturer of The Year
- Contractor of The Year
Being nominated as a finalist in these categories not only reflects well on Hetech as a company, but it’s also a testament to the hard work and dedication of every single employee. Hetech is truly a team, and our continued success is only possible thanks to the skills of each team member.
As thrilled as we were to be considered for these awards, we were equally excited to see two of our customers take home awards of their own.
Boeing Defence Australia’s Dr. Shane Arnott took home two titles in his company’s name: Innovator of The Year and The Defence Connect Excellence Award. Boeing Defence Australia was also honored as Major Defence Contractor of The Year.
Additionally, EOS Defence Systems took home honors as Export Business of The Year and Space Business of The Year.
Hetech would like to congratulate our customers on this exciting recognition of their successes, and thank all of our team members for their hard work leading to our company’s nominations. We’re already looking forward to next year’s Defence Connect.
