Pilbara News - - News - Ali­cia Per­era

The best busi­nesses in Onslow have re­ceived due recog­ni­tion at the town’s an­nual Busi­ness Ex­cel­lence Awards.

The an­nual Onslow Cham­ber of Com­merce and In­dus­try awards night, held last week, drew more than 80 peo­ple to see the best lo­cal com­pa­nies and or­gan­i­sa­tions in town ac­knowl­edged across 10 cat­e­gories.

Com­mer­cial clean­ing com­pany Keep It Kleen was named the best over­all busi­ness, as well as best mi­cro-busi­ness, on the night.

In the best busi­ness by em­ployee num­bers cat­e­gories, KHB Mo­bile Me­chan­i­cal won best busi­ness of five-to-10 staff while NTC Con­tract­ing col­lected the best busi­ness with 20 or more em­ploy­ees award.

Bri­jar­cass Se­cu­rity was a dou­ble win­ner on the night, tak­ing home awards for best busi­ness (11-20 em­ploy­ees) and best Abo­rig­i­nal busi­ness.

V Swans was awarded best com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tion and the Mack­erel Is­lands won the best tourism and hos­pi­tal­ity gong.

The cov­eted best em­ployee of the year prize went to Dread’s Sean Sadler. Mean­while, Globe­hill KBSS JV took home the peo­ple’s choice award af­ter win­ning the most votes in an on­line poll, which had more than 400 regis­tra­tions.

OCCI chief ex­ec­u­tive Chantelle King said this year’s awards had been the most pop­u­lar yet.

“(The awards) re­ceived a sig­nif­i­cant in­crease in sub­mis­sions this year, which is ex­cep­tional for such a small com­mu­nity,” she said.

“We have also re­ceived sub­mis­sions for each of the 10 cat­e­gories, which re­ally demon­strates how di­verse and strong the Onslow busi­ness land­scape is.”
