Congratulations to Baldwins’ client Fisher & Paykel Healthcare Ltd, winners of the Exporter of the Year to the USA over $5m at the 2013 AmCham-DHL Express Success & Innovation Awards.
The judges were impressed by “the depth of market penetration achieved in the USA and the extensive development of products in the Obstructive Sleep Apnea segment which further augments Fisher & Paykel’s range of heated respiratory humidifier products” that comes despite difficulties caused by the strong New Zealand dollar.
The award citation reads as follows:
“With approximately 40% of revenue being derived from the USA, Fisher & Paykel has a strong commitment to that market and shows a disciplined approach to marketing, research and development and intellectual property management that sets the standard for others to follow in the high technology sector.”
Due to the high calibre of entrants the judges found this category a difficult one to choose a winner. 2013 has seen another strong group of entrants, covering a diverse range of products and services. These include cars, furniture, technologies, plant research, foods, liquor, agricultural equipment, healthcare devices, wind turbines, biotech and tourism.
Award winners were announced at a gala dinner at the Pullman Hotel Auckland on 8th August.
Baldwins is proud to be a corporate sponsor of the 2013 AmCham-DHL Express Success & Innovation Awards, the 14th year of these awards celebrating success and innovation for companies doing business with the USA.
