NZ Business - - BRIEFCASE -

Dono­van Group NZ is the over­all win­ner of this year’s West­pac North­land Busi­ness Ex­cel­lence Awards. The com­pany scored a hat-trick, also re­ceiv­ing awards for in­no­va­tion and ex­cel­lence as a large busi­ness.

The Whangarei-based steel man­u­fac­tur­ing and con­struc­tion com­pany, who own the Coresteel Build­ings New Zealand fran­chise net­work, won the Supreme 2015 West­pac North­land Busi­ness of the Year, the Eroad Ex­cel­lence in Busi­ness (Large Busi­ness) Award and the North­land Inc In­no­va­tion Award.

The awards cer­e­mony held in Whangarei cel­e­brated en­trants from 43 North­land busi­nesses.

The judges were im­pressed with the com­pany’s strong lead­er­ship, fore­sight, and com­mit­ment to take it­self and the in­dus­try to the next level.

“I be­lieve our suc­cess has been de­ter­mined by the unique mix of our team, our pas­sion for well-en­gi­neered build­ing prod­ucts, in­no­va­tive home-grown IT sys­tems and great mar­ket­ing,” says Brett Dono­van, di­rec­tor, Dono­van Group NZ.

“The en­tre­pre­neur­ial and in­no­va­tive vi­sion starts at the top of the busi­ness and is en­cour­aged through­out the or­gan­i­sa­tion, both within Dono­van Group and our sub­sidiary com­pany Coresteel Build­ings.”

The North­land Inc In­no­va­tion Award was pre­sented to Dono­van Group for their in­no­va­tive new type of steel beam which can of­fer clear spans of over 70 me­tres. The Ver­te­beam prod­uct is a nested, box-shaped beam that is ta­pered through its length, re­sult­ing in less steel be­ing used and there­fore in­creas­ing cost-ef­fec­tive­ness.
