Hoselink among best in business
3 July 2013: Hoselink has been honoured in the prestigious Product Excellence category of The Australian Business Awards 2013.
Tim Kierath, Founder of Hoselink, says the award provides important recognition of the company’s innovative garden hose fittings.
Hoselink hose fittings are completely unique in the domestic hose fitting market. The hose fitting technology patented by Hoselink provides a 100 per cent watertight connection and is guaranteed to never burst off.
“It’s an honour to be recognised as a leader in our field”, Mr Kierath said. “As an Australian family owned and run small business we’ve been through some tough times. We kept at it though because we knew we had a great product.”
Now in its eighth year, The Australian Business Awards is a highly regarded national program with an established set of business and product award categories assessing the core values of business excellence, product excellence, sustainability and responsibility. The program engages with leading corporate, government and non-government organisations across key industry segments, including financial, manufacturing, professional services, energy, telecommunications, construction, transport, healthcare, education, food services and retail. Winners of the program are publicly honoured for their industry-leading initiatives and products.
From humble beginnings in 1998, Hoselink has grown to become a leader in the Australian hose fitting market and a popular choice for many gardeners.
Ms Tara Johnston, Program Director, The Australian Business Awards says, “Hoselink is a worthy recipient and has demonstrated a commitment to excellence that stands out amongst a dynamic field of Australia’s elite.
“The Australian Business Awards recognise our most innovative organisations, their outstanding achievements and contribution to the Australian economy. The awards raise the bar across all aspects of quality management and provide organisations with ways to review their business and product performance as well as identify their core strengths,” Ms Johnston adds.
“An Australian Business Award solidifies Hoselink’s place as a leader alongside our best in business. As well as achieving outstanding outcomes, the honourees have enhanced the reputation of their professions and have demonstrated their best endeavours across business, industry and the community. Australia’s modernised economy is providing a stable platform for a wide spectrum of sectors to increase their competitiveness through concerted ICT development, manufacturing innovation, a dynamic services sector, a growing knowledge economy and a world class primary sector.”
