Rakon Export NZ Supreme Award Winner
Auckland, June 21, 2011: Rakon (NZX: RAK) is delighted to be named the winner of the Supreme Award at the Air New Zealand Cargo Auckland Export Awards 2011. The judges commended Rakon for its strong revenue growth through the global financial downturn since 2008; for successfully identifying new market requirements, and expanding both its volume of output and the range of products marketed worldwide from its international headquarters in Auckland. Rakon was also awarded the Endace Hi-Tech Exporter of the Year Award 2011.
Brent Robinson, Rakon CEO commented “We are delighted with the recognition of the skill and commitment of our Rakon team. In the past financial year we achieved strong revenue growth across all markets. Less than 1% of our revenue is generated from sales into the NZ market so this was no easy achievement given the general economic environment globally and the strong NZ$. We are continuing to strive to build a truly global business headquartered here in NZ.”
“We would also like to congratulate the other winners and finalists – there were some terrific companies with great success over the past 12 months, so it was a great honour for Rakon to win this award.”
