AMTIL member Elexon Electronics has proudly accepted the inaugural Advanced Manufacturing Excellence Award and has been named Business of the Year in the 2021 Moreton Bay Region Business Excellence and Innovation Awards.

Operating for more than 15 years, Brendale-based Elexon Electronics has continually evolved in response to both changing customer needs and developments within the mining, medical and defence industries, while also being a passionate contributor to the Moreton Bay regional community. It received its award in a ceremony delivered by Moreton Bay Region Industry and Tourism (MBRIT) in partnership with Moreton Bay Regional Council.

“Being recognised in the sector of Advanced Manufacturing is quite an achievement especially during this challenging year,” said Frank Faller, CEO of Elexon Electronics. “It recognises our outstanding performance and is our testament to our continuous development. It also marks an important return of customer confidence, shifting from a dependence on overseas suppliers to homegrown manufacturing talent and capability once again.”

The event featured 58 finalists across 12 categories, after a record number of businesses from a diverse range of sectors were nominated. The winners were decided via a judging process involving 40 expert judges, who evaluated nominations based on industry world best-practice.

Taking out the top award, Elexon Electronics said it was honoured to stand alongside the other highly acclaimed local participating businesses. It also praised the collaborative atmosphere in the region, which promotes healthy competition and inspires excellence.
