Electra-loom: Finalist in 2013 Endeavour Awards

For the second year running, Electra- loom has been a finalist at the Manufacturers’ Monthly Endeavour Awards.


Electra-loom made it to the finals in the category of Enterprise Connect Significant Achievement Award.

The Endeavour Awards: recognising achievement in manufacturing

The Endeavour Awards are an annual event held to recognise the important role manufacturing plays in Australia’s economy. Organised by Australia’s primary magazine for the manufacturing industry, Manufacturers’ Monthly, the Endeavours are currently the only national awards program specifically for Australia’s manufacturing industry.

The Endeavour Awards program brings into the spotlight the achievements of industry leaders in their drive to achieve ‘best practice’ manufacturing. Now in their tenth year, the Awards have gained much publicity and momentum since being established in 2003. The 2013 Award winners were announced at a Gala dinner held in Melbourne on May 9.

Paul and the staff from Electra-loom were very happy to be named as a finalist. This was the second time Electra-loom had been a finalist in the Enterprise Connect Significant Achievement Award since joining the Enterprise Connect program in 2010.

About Enterprise Connect

The Enterprise Connect Significant Achievement Award recognises manufacturers who have made a significant achievement in productivity, competitiveness or innovative capability since completing their Enterprise Connect Business Review and Tailored Advisory Service project.

“Joining the Enterprise Connect program made a lot of sense to us,” said Paul Stedman. “We recognised that we needed to continue to increase productivity in a tough manufacturing environment.  We had seen the success of Kavanagh Industries and joined on their recommendation.”

Staff from Electra-loom attributes their award success to the efficiency of Electra-loom’s purpose-built factory, plus their commitment to ongoing productivity improvements through the implementation of Lean Manufacturing Principles.

Electra-loom management wish to extend their appreciation to those involved in the organisation and judging of the Manufacturers’ Monthly Endeavour Awards.
