On Wednesday, 18 September more than 1,200 attendees gathered at Horncastle Arena to celebrate Canterbury’s best emerging and established enterprises at the Westpac Champion Business Awards 2019.

The night was a source of immense pride for the Tuatara Structures team as we took out the Champion Producer/Manufacturer – Small Enterprise category.

This award recognises primary producers of materials, products or technology. Businesses in the category drive customer value through leading-edge innovation, operational efficiency, sustainable supply chain practices and high levels of employee engagement.

We are grateful for all the support we have received since launching back in 2014 from our various mentors, business partners, subcontractors, suppliers, and clients. And of course, we can’t forget our fantastic team – without whom this win would not have been possible.

Finally, we want to acknowledge our two very worthy category competitors, and all the other finalists and winners. It was truly inspiring to get a taste of the innovation, passion, and success that our region is currently generating.
