Third win for engineer firm
KBSS Engineering took out the award for best business at last Saturday night’s Karratha and Districts Chamber of Commerce and Industry Business Excellence Awards.
Hundreds of business professionals glammed up and gathered at the Tambrey function room for the awards, which recognise the achievements and innovation of small to medium-sized businesses across the City of Karratha.
KBSS also took home the award for best business with more than 20 employees for the third year running, earning them a spot in the KDCCI Hall of Fame.
KBSS director Cory Byers said he was proud to take the award again.
“We’ve got good people in the company who help us grow and expand, which is what we’re trying to do,” he said.
KDCCI chief executive John Lally said the chamber received twice as many nominations this year compared to 2016.
Each winner took home a unique glass sculpture trophy made especially for the awards by Cheeditha Art Group.
