Relken Engineering is thrilled to have been selected as a Finalist in the 2016 Telstra Business Awards - New Business Category. Now in their 24th year, the Telstra Business Awards are Australia's most prominent recognition program for small and medium businesses and being selected as a finalist is an incredible honour for Relken Engineering.
Telstra Business Awards Ambassador, Andy Ellis, noted that each finalist “demonstrates that passion and determination, coupled with strong business acumen, can turn a dream into a profitable and sustainable business”. Relken is proud to have been selected as finalist along with a select group of successful and passionate organisations.
During this process, Relken Engineering co-founder Mr Benjamin Mailler found it easy to pinpoint the primary driver of Relken’s achievements:
“It's our team. From the start we've focused on building a team of talented professionals that have a passion for asset management and solving problems. We want to build a team that we enjoy working with because of their positive mindset and technical capabilities who we could trust with solving the more difficult problems in our industry.”
Co-founder Dr Andrew O'Connor (better known as Occa) commented on what the award means to him:
“Ben and I started this company because we enjoyed working together and continually challenging ourselves to solve asset management problems. We found incredible satisfaction in continually extending our experience and knowledge and also seeing our work being implemented into organisations that want to see change. At that point we could never have imagined that we would grow to become a company of 25 consultants and being recognised by an organisation such as the Telstra business awards. It’s a great validation that throughout our growth we've been able to maintain our culture by building, and focusing on, a great team of people who are as enthusiastic as we are."
Relken is proud to be welcomed into the Telstra Business Awards Alumni. We look forward to continuing to help our clients increase their assets' productivity and reduce total cost of ownership.
