The 2019 Tomago Aluminium Suppliers Awards

THE KEY TO ANY SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS IS A STRONG SUPPLY CHAIN AND AT TOMAGO ALUMINIUM WE ARE EXTREMELY GRATEFUL FOR THE SERVICES GIVEN BY OUR MANY SUPPLIERS.

On Friday we thanked all our suppliers for their hard work with a dinner at Hexham Bowling Club and presented a number of awards to show our appreciation.

Now in their 14th year, the Tomago Aluminium Supplier Awards recognise the efforts made by our wide supplier base, which operates across a broad spectrum of services to help keep us operating.

Of our more than 800 suppliers, some 70 were nominated for 11 awards for excellence across six individual categories, their importance underlined by the presence at the dinner of guests from China (Mr Qishan, Mr Tienren, Mr Yi, Mr Yantao) representing JSHC, Japan (Mr Shioda) representing Sumitomo Corporation, Denmark (Morten Simonsen) representing Simonsen and interstate.

In his welcome speech, Tomago CEO Matt Howell spoke of the importance of recognising the great input from the supplier base and the need to work together in the current tight economic environment.

Speaking about the awards, Procurement Sourcing Advisor, Tony Camps, said Hexham Bowling Club continues to be a winner, with everyone enjoying the atmosphere, hospitality, service and entertainment. It's also a great opportunity for suppliers to get to know each other in a relaxed atmosphere.

Tony doubled as both Master of Ceremonies and entertainment on the night, taking to the stage to channel Peter Garrett and Midnight Oil with his group, Anthology.
