Nauhria Precast Limited was announced winner of the ultimate Supreme Business Excellence Award and the Excellence in Innovation category of the Westpac Auckland Business Best of the Best 2015 awards held in Auckland last night.
The precast concrete manufacturer and supplier had emerged victorious from the regional awards last year, winning both the Supreme Business Excellence Award and the Excellence in Innovation category, as well as CEO, Rakesh Nauhria, winning the Excellence in Business Leadership category at the Westpac Auckland Business Awards South held on 8 October 2015.
Factors such as fast turnaround times, thoughtful suggestions and improvements to save customers time and money, a high quality innovative product, and a strong focus on creating a memorable customer experience, contributed to Nauhria Precast’s success. The competition judges were also impressed with Nauhria Precast’s use of an innovation board that leverages ideas from employees at every level, which then “flow through to product innovation for the customer and efficiencies for the company”.
The Auckland Chamber of Commerce described Nauhria Precast as “an outstanding example of businesses leading South Auckland’s dynamic manufacturing base and demonstrating innovation and entrepreneurship in a highly competitive space”.
The ‘Best of the Best’ awards recognised the top category winners from the Auckland Central, North, South, and West awards, and awarded overall category winners from these finalists. Other finalists included businesses operating in the medical, hospitality, retail, and tourism industries.
It is fantastic to see a business from the construction sector leading the way in both innovation and business excellence, and ultimately taking out the top award of the night. Congratulations Nauhria Precast Limited.
