NTHA recognises industry leaders during influential awards

by | Jun 16, 2023

The National Timber and Hardware Association (NTHA) brought the timber and hardware industries together after celebrating its national awards on May 26. The awards took place at the first conference – held in the Hunter Valley, New South Wales – since the merge of TABMA Australia and Hardware Australia. The awards recognised leading professionals and organisations in both the timber and hardware industries who are working above and beyond to deliver quality products and services.  

NTHA Chief Executive Officer, David Little said the national awards provided a significant opportunity for timber and hardware professionals to be acknowledged on a larger scale.

“This event was the first time since the merger, earlier this year, that our industries have come together and the atmosphere in the room was electric – with plenty of opportunities to network with a wider stakeholder group,” Mr Little said.

“Congratulations to all of our finalists and winners who have all shown dedication to their work and achieved above and beyond results for their businesses,” he said.
