We’re very proud that two of our products have received top honours in the 2011 Australian Business Awards!
From 928 applications from across Australia, our Lancer S4 and S8 Superchillers and Lancer Ecco Heat™ came out on top of their categories.
Lancer S4 and S8 Superchillers – Product Excellence award
The Australian Business Award for Product Excellence recognises market-leading products or services that demonstrate overall product superiority offering a point of difference from their competitors.
The Lancer S4 and S8 Superchillers are remote post mix chiller and carbonator systems that allow high volumes of cold soft drink to be dispensed in relatively high temperature and humidity conditions.
They are also more energy efficient than previous models and competitors’ systems, using 30% less energy and saving up to 6.8 tonnes of CO2 per annum.
These Superchillers are used by Coca-Cola, Schweppes, Hungry Jacks and other quick service restaurants and hotels, throughout Australia and overseas.
This isn’t the first accolade for the S4 Superchiller; it was also the recipient of the "Sustainability" award in the 2009 Coca Cola Amatil Australian Supplier of the Year Awards.
139 products were entered in the Product Excellence category.
Lancer Ecco Heat™ – Best Eco-Friendly Product
The Australian Business Award for Best Eco-Friendly Product recognises environmentally friendly products or services that demonstrate innovation and commitment to sustainable living.
Lancer Ecco Heat™ is our Free Hot Water™ Heat Recovery System that generates hot water from the waste heat produced by refrigeration units.
These systems are installed in nearly every Coles Supermarket in Australia.
This product also isn’t award-shy, having been named Australian Industrial Product of the Year in the Manufacturers’ Monthly Endeavour Awards in May this year.
48 products were entered in the Best Eco-Friendly Product category
The annual Australian Business Awards are now in their sixth year, and raise the bar across all aspects of product management enabling organisations to benchmark against top performers in their industry.
Many thanks to the Australian Business Awards and congratulations to all other award recipients.
Coca-Cola Amatil Supplier Of The Year
Last year we were extremely proud to be named Supplier of the Year for Sustainability which was due in large part to the significant re-engineering of our Soft Drink Superchillers. This realised energy use reductions of approximately 30% resulting in CO2 savings this year equivalent to taking 1500 cars off the road.
This year we are extremely proud to be a finalist in the top three of 40 suppliers in the trade equipment category (and the only beverage dispensing equipment company to be a finalist) as we continue to innovate and develop new and exciting soft drink dispensing systems, frozen beverage dispensers, and draught beer dispensing systems for CCA.
We thank CCA for their fantastic Supplier Of The Year Program which sets the benchmark in our experience for strategic supplier engagement resulting in better and more customer focused solutions.
