Export Awards Double for BRL Hardy. (Australian Export Awards)


SOUTH AUSTRALIA'S BRL Hardy Wine Company, one of the country's wine exporting powerhouses, has been named the 2001 DHL Australian Exporter of the Year.

BRL Hardy took the top honour at this year's Australian Export Awards, beating a record field of 69 finalists. The company also took out the P&O Nedlloyd Agribusiness Award for the second year running.

More than 700 guests were at a gala ceremony held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre last month to find out the winners of the 2001 Australian Export Awards. Federal Trade Minister Mark was the guest of honour, while Queensland Premier Peter Beattie was a special guest. Both Vaile and Beattie praised the efforts of all finalists and the contribution they made to Australia's economy.

BRL Hardy, one of the world's largest wine producers, has achieved massive growth in export sales, most notably with strong selling brands such as Banrock Station, Nottage Hill and Stamp of Australia. The company exports to more than 50 countries, and is now the number one "off-premise" brand in the UK.

New South Wales was well represented in the final winners' list, with two companies, BridgeClimb Sydney and the University of New South Wales, taking out the Overseas Trading Arts and Entertainment Award and the IDP Education Australia Education Award respectively.

Western Australia's Lasata Software took out the HP Information and Communications Technology Award, while Clough Engineering won the Australian Business Ltd Services Award.

Victoria's Compumedics Ltd repeated their feat of 1998 by winning the Commonwealth Bank Small to Medium Manufacturer Award.

Queensland companies had the strongest showing, with four exporters taking out Awards. AWS Clinical Waste received the Austrade Emerging Exporter Award, Filtronic Comtek Australia won the Australian Made Large Advanced Manufacturer Award, Australian Premium Coals received the FreightCorp Minerals Award, and Russell Mineral Equipment won the new Australia Post Regional Exporter of the Year category.

Rounding things off for the Sunshine State was fellow Queenslander and sporting icon Keiren Perkins, who was awarded the Special Achievement Award for his efforts in promoting a positive image of Australia overseas.

Japan's Yutaka Furutani, senior managing director of Aeon Co Ltd, was also honoured on the night for his efforts in fostering trade with Australia, and was the recipient of the Austrade International Award.

The Awards, which are comprised of a series of State and Territory Awards in which the winners automatically qualify for the national event, aims to highlight and recognise the growing role of exports in the Australian community.
