Lake Macquarie NSW based dishwasher manufacturer Norris Industries has won a coveted Gold Award in the Product Design category of the Good Design Awards, for the outstanding design and innovation of its AP500 high-performance commercial dishwasher that uses 50 per cent less power.
Norris Industries Managing Director Greg Gates says the award has come out of the company’s high commitment to completely change the way a commercial dishwasher supports the busy work environment of an Australian commercial kitchen.
“Norris Industries has been building and supplying reliable commercial glass and dishwashers to the hospitality industry for over sixty years,” he says. “Our focus has always been built-to-last, reliable machines with lower energy consumption, three important things to any good hospitality operator.”
The annual Good Design Awards are Australia’s most prestigious international awards for design and innovation and celebrate the best new products and services across a wide range of categories on the Australian market. This year’s winners were announced at The Star Casino, Sydney on 11th July, after a record number of submissions, close to 700, were evaluated.
“Receiving a Good Design Award at this level is a significant achievement given the very high calibre of entries received this year,” Good Design Australia CEO Dr Brandon Gien says.
The awards jury praised the Norris AP500 High Performance Commercial Dishwasher, highlighting “innovative Australian design and ingenuity” and “a sustainable product with potential for big energy savings”.
Greg Gates and the R&D team are thrilled with the prestigious award, saying, “We reckon there’s nothing like it in the market – and it seems the judges of Good Design agree!”
