Bisalloy Steels are proud to have been named as a finalist in the Defence Connect Australian Defence Industry Awards for SME of the Year – Regional.
Celebrating its second year, the Defence Connect Australian Defence Industry Awards sets the new benchmark for excellence in defence, recognising the outstanding achievements made by both individuals and firms working in Australian defence industry.
From the major listed organisations and corporates servicing Australia’s defence economy to SMEs, start-ups, academic institutions and associations, the Defence Connect Australian Defence Industry Awards acknowledges the professionals and businesses that are driving innovation, change and the development of Australia’s defence sector.
The finalists, who were announced over several days beginning on 6 October 2020, represent over 270 individuals and groups across the defence industry over 33 different categories.
Phillip Tarrant, director – Defence and Aerospace, welcomed the response to the Defence Connect Australian Defence Industry Awards, saying, “the defence industry has once again got right behind the awards, with over 270 finalists shortlisted from over 500 submissions representing over 150 companies.”
“This is an extraordinary vote of confidence for Australia’s defence industry and representative of the depth of talent we have in our sector – I would like to thank each of the entrants for their submissions and wish all the finalists the best of luck,” Mr Tarrant added.
Justin Suwart, Business Manager – Armour & Protection at Bisalloy, said that Bisalloy are humbled to be recognised and proud to be a part of such an extensive network.
“We continue to work with both Primes and SMEs to develop sovereign defence capabilities for Australia, often without recognition by the wider market. Being a finalist in the Defence Connect Australian Industry Awards is a great way to gain some recognition, and the other finalists show the calibre of defence SMEs we have in Australia. Good luck to everyone!”,” he added.
