The Breeze – October 2019 – That’s Better. That’s Actron!

If your business is celebrating a milestone or special achievement and you would like to share it with us, please drop us a line at thebreeze@actronair.com.au

Here are a few achievements from the past few months that have given us that warm & fuzzy feeling.

ActronAir identified among Australia’s best privately managed companies

ActronAir is among eight private Australian companies recognised for their outstanding business performance in Deloitte Australia’s first Best Managed Companies Awards.

The program, established in Canada in 1993, uses Deloitte global insights and global best practices – generated from over 25 years working with private companies – to identify and celebrate Australia’s most outstanding privately owned and managed companies that set the highest standards of business performance and are a key driver of Australia’s economy.

An independent judging panel, comprising of program sponsors and special guest judges evaluate the companies across four key pillars: strategy, culture and commitment, capabilities and innovation, and governance and financials. The applicants undergo a rigorous training and assessment process to determine who will be awarded the title of Best Managed Company.

“It’s about celebrating the passion, focus, dynamism, and growth that Australia’s best private companies are renowned for. They are often the disruptors – developing and adoptin new technology swiftly, supporting local communities in a unique way, and always looking for growth and success beyond our borders” – Natalie Faull, Deloitte Private Partner and National Leader – Best Managed Companies program

In association with the program sponsors – Google Cloud, Qantas, Commonwealth Bank and Business Council of Australia – the winners were announced at a Gala event held in Sydney on Tuesday, 15th October and we are extremely proud that ActronAir was awarded a winner of the prestigious Best Managed Companies award!

Natalie added: “The program’s vision is to identify and showcase the incredible achievements of private companies as they continue to go from strength to strength and help them cultivate new learnings. It offers valuable opportunities for coaching, local and global networking, visibility, connectivity, and recognition – and there’s an enormous amount to learn from our global counterparts”.

Being recognised as one of Australia’s best privately managed companies in this ever-changing market isn’t something we take lightly.

It’s a testament to the whole ActronAir, and we attribute this achievement to the culture created by our amazing staff, accredited dealers and customer base, who over the years have continued to demonstrate loyalty, focus, and are passionate about our products and promoting the ActronAir brand based on their own experiences.

We believe that by offering local service and support, and features such as a single brand solution, better capacity and superior operating range, we equip our customers with the resources they need to get the job done, easily.

As we continue to evolve, the valuable input and dedication from our customers enables us to ensure our products remain at the highest standard and sets a benchmark for continued growth in the HVAC industry, so that we can continue to develop simple solutions and deliver premium, efficient air-conditioning that is easy to use and specifically designed for how Australian’s really live.

We thank Deloitte for this amazing opportunity and their impact on Australian business and congratulate the other winning companies on their success.

 

Platinum Dealer Conference – Phuket, Thailand

ActronAir’s Platinum Dealer Conference was held at the JW Marriott Resort & Spa in Phuket, Thailand mid-August. This year’s Conference received the best feedback to date, with attendees commenting that overall it was a great event, at a great location.

Keynote, Peter Baines who founded the charity Hands Across the Water, left a particularly significant impact when addressing the room. A massive thank you to those who have contributed to Hands Across the Water! Donations were greatly appreciated by the charity and have gone to an amazing cause- helping those who need it most. Donations (that we’re aware of) have exceeded $15,000 in total!

Jersey Day

On 30th August we got behind a great initiative, donning our sporting jerseys to raise awareness for organ donation.

 

Making an impact!

Earlier in the year we celebrated our 35th Birthday with a family fun day at our Marsden Park facility. Staff were invited to bring their family along so they could see exactly where they work.

It’s heart-warming to hear that this event had a special effect on one family member. Ali Yakoub, who works in our Technical Service department brought his family along on the day. His daughter, Fareeha (Grade 4) had been asking him questions about ActronAir and absolutely loved our logo. So much so, that for Father’s Day she designed a tee shirt with the ActronAir logo which was displayed at her school assembly and Father’s Day BBQ.

Great work, Fareeha!

Norman Windell

As most of you would now be aware – our Managing Director, Norman Windell recently retired. Norman was with ActronAir for 5 years and played an important role in many of the successes the business has achieved in that time, in particular with the Marsden Park build and Head Office relocation, and our recent award as one of Australia’s Best Managed Companies. We wish Norman all the best for his retirement and travels, and thank him for his hard work, dedication, leadership, and contribution to ActronAir.
