Apricus Australia has been honoured in the prestigious Service Excellence category of The Australian Business Awards 2013.
Chris Taylor, Managing Director of Apricus Australia says the award provides important recognition of the organisation’s dedication to creating a unique experience for the customers who interact with us.
"We have structured our entire business on building and maintaining strong relationships, something we call the good bloke factor. The good bloke factor is about looking after people and going above and beyond in all aspects of the business whether it's product design, support, training or after sales. Being officially recognised for excelling at this legitimises the model we have adopted, and is a credit to the people we have within the business".
Since its inception in 2005, Apricus Australia has created a service driven culture to build relevance within the Australian hot water market place. "Having a great product is one thing, but before anybody will support your product - they need to like you, and they need to trust you." "People should feel relaxed when they deal with Apricus, because they know we deliver on our promises and the products we offer meet and exceed their expectations" Taylor added.
Now it its eighth year, The Australian Business Awards is a highly regarded national program with an established set of business and product award categories assessing the core values of business excellence, product excellence, sustainability and responsibility. The program engages with leading corporate, government and non-government organisations across key industry segments, including financial, manufacturing, professional services, energy, telecommunications, construction, transport, healthcare, education, food services and retail. Winners of the program are publicly honoured for their industry-leading initiatives and products.
Ms Tara Johnston, Program Director, The Australian Business Awards says, “Apricus Australia is a worthy recipient and has demonstrated a commitment to excellence that stands out amongst a dynamic field of Australia’s elite.
“The Australian Business Awards recognise our most innovative organisations, their outstanding achievements and contribution to the Australian economy. The awards raise the bar across all aspects of quality management and provide organisations with ways to review their business and product performance as well as identify their core strengths,” Ms Johnston adds.
“An Australian Business Award solidifies Apricus Australia’s place as a leader alongside our best in business. As well as achieving outstanding outcomes, the honourees have enhanced the reputation of their professions and have demonstrated their best endeavours across business, industry and the community. Australia’s modernised economy is providing a stable platform for a wide spectrum of sectors to increase their competitiveness through concerted ICT development, manufacturing innovation, a dynamic services sector, a growing knowledge economy and a world class primary sector.”
