Nominations are open for ACBA:2014

Nominations have now opened for the AustCham Westpac Australia-China Business Awards. This annual event celebrates the success of Australian business in China, recognising companies that have worked to deliver Australian products or services to the Greater China region.

These awards have grown in stature over the years and are now acknowledged as a key event on the Australia China calendar. The Awards cover a broad spectrum; from small entrepreneur’s right through to some of Australia’s largest publically listed companies.

Beijing-based Mic Mittasch, the CEO and Owner of Mitchells Equipment was the winner of last year’s Austrade Business Excellence Award for Small and Medium Enterprises at the AustCham Westpac ACBA:2013. Since acquiring the heavy-duty equipment manufacturing business – Mitchells – from its Canadian owner in 2006, Mr Mittasch expanded the business to grow to more than 100 employees, and exporting to more than 30 countries.

Sales revenue quadrupled from US$3.2 million in 2006 to US$13 million in 2012. Mr Mittasch says being a recipient of an Australia-China Business Award has given the business recognition that “we are doing business in China the right way.”


“This award is great for our company and great for our customers. This award gives us credibility for our business.”
