McKay Wins Minister’s of Defense Award of Excellence to Industry

McKay was award the top prize in the ‘C’ category for our work on the Project Protector vessels, and McKay’s on-going electrical support for the RNZN.

The Defence Industry Awards are an annual event promoted by the Defence Industry Committee of New Zealand and sponsored by the Ministry of Defence, and the NZDF, to highlight and reward the contribution made by industry to the New Zealand Defence Force.

The 2010 Minister of Defence Awards of Excellence to Industry dinner was held in October. 2010 saw a number of very strong contenders being nominated and the decisions required of the Assessment Team and Judging Panel were challenging. McKay Electrical Ltd were rated very highly in the “Excellence on an ongoing basis, especially in the supply of services to Defence” area.

The Assessment Teams report stated: “A strong relationship has been forged between the RNZN and McKay’s that exists as a true partnership on a working level. They are always flexible in working around the RNZN’s schedule and the relationship has been enhanced further since the delivery of the IPV’s.”
