On Friday 26th October the owners and management from Coastpak Besgrow attended the Development West Coast Leading Light Business Excellence Awards at Shantytown.
We had been chosen as a finalist for the Crombie Lockwood Medium Enterprise Award and were honoured to win this category.
The following video shows Group General Manager, Garry Clark’s acceptance speech.
There were eight categories and the winners of each were eligible for the Supreme Award.
We were hopeful but realistic given the competition from the other very successful West Coast businesses. The following video shows the genuine surprise and excitement when Chris McKenzie, the Development West Coast Chief Executive announced Coastpak Besgrow had won the Supreme Award.
This sentiment shows in the acceptance speech from the Company Founder, Clive Washington.
This is an excellent achievement after thirty years in business. It is dedicated to Clive and Dorothy Washington and the management and staff of Coastpak Besgrow for their belief and dedication that we would succeed in building a successful business.
