What a great couple of days it’s been for Digga. On Wednesday Digga won the October Award for Manufacturing & Construction in the Gold Coast Business Excellence Awards and is now in the running to win the supreme award at the Gold Coast Business of the Year presentation next month. And, if that wasn’t enough, last night Digga won the Dermot McManus Award at the Queensland Export Awards as well as being named a finalist in the construction category. The Dermot McManus Award is one of the 4 major awards handed out on the night and it recognises exporters that have demonstrated strong leadership ability in business innovation and best practice, including strategy, production and processes.
“The awards are a reflection on everyone at Digga, without the hard work of all branches and divisions this recognition would not be possible. Congratulations to everyone and well done.”
