Elexon Mining from Brendale has taken out one of the top awards at the 2022 Moreton Bay Business and Innovation Awards after impressing the judges with its outstanding business performance.
The Brendale business renowned for world-first technology in the mining sector was recognised for its efforts and exporting capabilities at region’s top business awards.
The awards night, which was held at the Eatons Hill Hotel on Friday, October 21, celebrated and recognised business excellence and innovation across the region.
A panel of 44 judges were tasked with choosing winners in each of the categories, with Elexon Mining coming out on top in the Solar Bollard Lighting Award for Exporting Excellence category.
Speaking on the night, Elexon Group of Companies Directing Manager Pieter Kuiper said: “we are the only ones in the world that have achieved what we have been able to achieve”.
“We can make electronic products that go into the ground and be 60cm away from the explosives that are shattering rock, one kilometre under the ground, and our products survive that and communicate wirelessly through the ground and tell people what is going on,” Peter said.
