Plantman Equipment receives Business of the Year award

Plantman Equipment has announced it was named, not only the winner of the Mining Services category in the 2014 Hanson Swan Business Awards, but also Business of the Year during a gala presentation dinner held at the Belvoir Venue in Perth’s Swan Valley.

Drawing from the large business community within Perth’s north-eastern metropolitan region, the Hanson Swan Business Awards provides recognition to businesses consistently delivering outstanding value and service, while providing operators a further opportunity to look at their business from every angle to enhance performance.

As the company looks to enter its 23rd year of operation, Plantman Equipment Managing Director, Michael Elliot said, “To have been considered and chosen for the Mining Services award is very pleasing. We started Plantman in the belief that we could provide an extensive range of mining equipment and an innovative range of service trucks designed to handle the unique requirements of the mining industry. We look forward to working with our clients to continually refine and improve this range to meet their changing needs.”

Elliot continued, “To also receive the Business of the Year award amongst such strong contenders within the Swan business community was very rewarding. While I am very biased, it does not come as a surprise to me. We have a great team of dedicated professionals who consistently deliver on our promise of outstanding service, and I am very proud they have received this award.” ###
