Congratulations to the 2018 winners!

Northern Benchtops Ltd – winner of the Northland Regional Council Environmental Excellence Award.

The judges said:
This is certainly an eco-friendly business! There is a strong environmental awareness which has been built into many aspects of the company’s operations. Examples of this are the recycling of water through the factory, the collection of roadside rubbish by employees, re-cycling initiatives, and encouraging suppliers to use non-plastic wrapping materials. Northern Benchtops have shown that it is possible to create a successful business without harming the environment.

Northern Benchtops Ltd also won the ACC Workplace Safety Award.
