YOUNG ACHIEVER HUMBLED BY AWARD

19 Oct 15 ARBS 2016, Australia’s only international air conditioning, refrigeration and building services trade exhibition, is taking nominations for the 2016 industry awards which recognise excellence in Australia’s HVAC, refrigeration and building services industries across a range of areas including Young Achiever, Product Excellence, Project Excellence, Industry Education and Training and the Hall of Fame. The awards, now firmly entrenched as the pinnacle of achievement in the industry, attract nominees from across the industry with the 2014 Young Achiever recipient, Brett Saunders of Hiflow Industries, saying it was a humbling experience to win the award. ‘Winning the ARBS award was a massive surprise. It was fantastic for my family, as they know the commitment and effort I put into growing the company. But it was also a really great morale boost for the Hiflow Industries team. You are only as good as your team, the clients around you and the people that support you, and you only get that from hard work, dedication and building trust and loyalty. So it has been fantastic to be able to share that success with people, and the award has ended up being bigger than me’ says Saunders. The awards are an opportunity for industry players to showcase their skills, products and performance across all sectors of the HVAC&R and building services industry, to identify, promote and congratulate the talent and vision that sustains the industry. ‘When you look at the services that we provide at Hiflow Industries, it is all back of house. We are not at the front of house doing all the nice fancy things that provide a visual impact. So we are forgotten about. However from an environmental standpoint we are typically responsible for 70 per cent of the energy of a building, so we have an important role to play in energy and greenhouse gas emissions and can have a massive impact on what the world wants to achieve’ says Saunders. A panel of industry experts will evaluate the nominations based on various criteria such as leadership, sustainability, performance and innovation with winners revealed at a gala industry dinner to be held on 18 May 2016 in Melbourne, as part of the 2016 ARBS Exhibition. Further details and full category and criteria requirements for entry are available on the ARBS 2016 website, www.arbs.com.au.
