Sydney, Australia: 10 December 2012 – Ensitech, the welding technology designer and manufacturer that invented the TIG Brush™ and exports to 15 countries, has won four of Australia’s most prestigious business awards.
Inventor and company owner Clive White became accustomed to the winners’ rostrum in November when he collected trophies at the 50th Australian Export Awards, the New South Wales Export Awards, and twice at the New South Wales Business Chamber Awards.
Ensitech received the accolades after developing a complete system and methodology for preparing, cleaning, treating and protecting welded and other metal surfaces. Its TIG Brush™ Weld Cleaning System is now in use in four continents and has significantly improved workplace safety by superseding traditional weld cleaning processes which typically used a highly toxic acid compound.
Ensitech won the Excellence in Innovation Award at the New South Wales Business Chamber 2012 Awards, and also collected Business of the Year – an award given to a business chosen by the judges from all the category winners.
The success continued at the New South Wales Export Awards where Ensitech won the Small Business category, entitling the company to progress as a finalist in the national Australian Export Awards.
The Ensitech team was out in force for the 50th Australian Export Awards, hosted in the Great Hall of Parliament House, Canberra, where Ensitech was named national winner of the Small Business category, due to its successful strategies to grow the business in Australia and internationally.
The Australian Export Awards program is co-presented by Austrade and the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
Announcing the win, The Hon David Bradbury MP, Assistant Treasurer and Ensitech’s local Federal MP, said: “Ensitech deserves recognition for both its international success and contribution to the Western Sydney community”.
“I congratulate the team at Ensitech on this excellent achievement and wish them all the best for the future.”
Clive White, owner of Ensitech and inventor of the TIG Brush™ said: “It’s been a tremendously exciting few weeks. Like all ‘overnight success stories’, this one has taken years of hard work by a team of dedicated people, and it’s great to see them get the recognition they deserve.”
“The success of the TIG Brush™ is not only a tremendous boost to the economy, it’s vastly improved workplace safety for an entire industry.”
