RDL Group took out the top award for Trade and Services at the Wellington Region Business Excellence Awards over the weekend.
The award was bestowed upon the company for their rapid rise to success across the Wellington region over the past two years.
Selection for the award included proven project success, strong leadership, quality management, strategic marketing and a strong commitment to a healthy environment for personnel, contractors and the public.
Managing Director Benji Sneddon says that the award is a reflection of the hard work the team has put in over the past two years.
“This award is a direct reflection of the sheer amount of effort everyone has put in as a collective unit.
“We’ve faced a fair amount of adversity in a pretty tough and competitive industry, but we’ve continued to defy the odds and proven our worth.”
Founding Director David Sneddon, who formed the business back in 1991 says that the progress made over the last few years is indicative of strategic success in a changing market.
“We reworked our business model and reflected on what we needed to do to remain competitive in the current market.
“It fills me with pride to see the company moving forward in leaps and bounds and I’m proud of what Benji and the wider team have achieved.”
RDL Group were also finalists in the Young Business Person of the Year category, with Benji’s dedication and commitment to business recognised among three other high performing young business people.
