B&R Enclosures has been recognised as a leading supply partner servicing the Australian telecommunications market after taking out the coveted 2014 NBN Co Chairman's Award for Supplier Excellence and Innovation.

B&R was recognised for its outstanding business conduct, world class design innovation, engineering excellence, supply reliability and consistent high quality.

Greg Adcock, NBN Co Chief Operations Officer said: “This family-owned Australian company’s innovation solution supports the National Broadband Network‘s objective to deliver broadband faster, sooner and more cost effectively.”

Ken Bridges, managing director of B&R Enclosures said: "This award belongs to everybody at B&R that has worked with great diligence and commitment to understand the needs and expectations of NBN Co.”

Since the NBN rollout began in 2011, B&R has supplied Common Network Infrastructure (CNI) racks for Fibre Access Nodes, Aggregation Nodes and Points of Interconnect in NBN Co's Transit Network.

This was followed by a competitive tender for the design and manufacture of an enclosure for the housing of the network termination device and power supply to be installed in customer premises.

The project required B&R to undertake extensive research into the needs of installers and home owners to provide an innovative, visually appealing, small enclosure that met demanding specifications for temperature control, cable management, as well as ease of access and safety.

A proud Australian, family-owned company, B&R’s specialises in design innovation, engineering and supply chain management.

“Our risk-weighted, entrepreneurial approach to continually investing in people skills, business capability and world class innovative manufacturing technology has been essential for meeting the demanding requirements of NBN Co,” said Mr Bridges.
