Oceanmax was among nine companies taking home Westpac Auckland Business Awards, winning Excellence in International Trade for the north-west region.

Oceanmax is the developer and manufacturer of Propspeed, a non-toxic, foul-release coating that protects boat propellers and running gear from marine growth, widely used internationally for the last 20 years.

“It’s a huge reward from the business world for the hard work our team does day in and day out and a chance in a busy business to take a moment to reflect and celebrate,” said Managing Director Clint Jones in his acceptance speech at North Harbour Stadium. www.oceanmax.com
