Awards & recognition

Even though we always put our customers first, you can’t argue with the fact that it’s extremely satisfying to be recognised by the media and receive awards for the work you do.

Throughout our history, we’ve won numerous awards and received recognition for our work from all over the world. 

When we are recognised and rewarded by the customers, industry and media, we'll be honest, we feel on top of the world, but are also humbled by all the accolades received over the years.
