Waste industry engineering firm Wastech have received a special accolade in recognition of a special partnership with a Danish equipment manufacturer.
His Royal Highness Prince Henrik of Denmark’s Medal of Honour and the Diploma of the Danish Export Association was presented by the Ambassador of Denmark to Wastech’s co-founder Neil Bone at a special reception at the company head office in Hallam on 27 June.
The honour came about through a longstanding and successful relationship with Bramidan, a Danish firm that manufacturers balers. The Diploma and Medal were conferred in recognition of Wastech’s “outstanding effort” in promoting and marketing Danish products and services abroad.
“Bramidan, which is based in Denmark, nominated us for the award, as Wastech has been importing its cardboard balers for 15 years and promoting these quality products to our customers,” says Wastech CEO Brett Jones.
Bramidan Managing Director, Henrik Duholm Madsen, flew to Melbourne especially for the presentation, which industry representatives, local dignitaries and many of Wastech’s employees also attended.
The accolade means a great deal to Brett, the business co-owners Neil and Paul Bone, and all their employees, as it demonstrates how far Wastech goes to offer the best solutions for customers.
“The award recognises the quality of the Bramidan product and Wastech customer service,” Brett adds. “What this does is create an awareness that we are associated with quality organisations, and offers assurance to our customers that we are able to offer them the best equipment and products, across all sectors.”
