Australian Marine Expo Group (AIMEX) President Richard Chapman recognised the high calibre of Australian Marine manufacturers and service providers at the Annual Marine Industry Awards Ceremony at Sanctuary Cove, Australia. 

Not only were the 13 categories of awards presented to the winners of the annual awards, but the AIMEX board of directors also recognised the commitment and growth of two other companies with special Recognition Awards.

“The calibre of the entries in this years’ awards is a testimony to the strength that the Australian Marine industry has in both the domestic and international markets,” says Chapman.

The board acknowledged SOS Marine, a company with a long history of contributing to the marine safety of Australia. The AIMEX board wanted to recognise that to compete in the arena of Safety is extremely challenging as whatever product is being produced, is heavily scrutinised and tested against the World and Australian Standards particularly in the area of Survival at Sea. SOS Marine is an Australian company that endured such measurement and managed to gain the attention of the military, government agencies and other worldwide consumers. 

The AIMEX board also recognised the continued work of Peter Luke, Sales Director of Superyacht Solutions. “Luke’s support for Superyacht Australia and his input to creating profile for Australia in the Asia-Pacific region should not go unnoticed,” Chapman says.

Luke not only pushes to elevate his own business, but also has a strong interest in ensuring his colleagues and industry players attract as much business as possible to Australia.
