A Matthews Steer client for more than a decade, Limelite is a family design and manufacturing company that specialises in manufacturing Australian-made lighting for the commercial and architectural sector.
The Limelite team was recognised for embracing technology and innovation by establishing the world’s first Additive Manufacturing Hub for the 3D printing of lights.
“Limelite is a local business at the forefront of the 3D printing revolution,” said Matthews Steer Director and Head of Private Wealth, Anthony Flapper, who attended the awards breakfast. “We’ve been working with them since their business was in its infancy and since those early days, they’ve always demonstrated a knack for innovating, designing and building cutting-edge products, and for embracing innovation in their approach to manufacturing.”
Limelite’s newest product, a world-first recessed ceiling rose and cable adjustment system called ’One Motion,’ is currently being launched to market and Flapper said it looks set to further reinforce Limelite’s position as a leader in manufacturing innovation in North West Melbourne, and globally.
“Limelite’s commitment to revolutionising the lighting industry is unrelenting, and Matthews Steer is delighted to stand shoulder to shoulder with such a passionate, forward-thinking and growth-focused business,” he said.
Associate Nidal Mazloum presented the Matthews Steer-sponsored Export Award to Naturally Good Products, a Campbellfield-based business established by the Manglaviti and Montalto families in 1986. Naturally Good was recognized for its wide variety of ‘free from’ snacks, cookies and crispbreads, which are manufactured in a dedicated wheat/gluten-free facility and are endorsed by Coeliac Australia.
“Naturally Good is another impressive example of the enterprising work being done in the food industry in North West Melbourne,” said Flapper. “They’ve responded to the growing demand for healthy, gluten, wheat, dairy, and egg-free, and vegan products, and they’re getting great brand recognition across Victoria – and the rest of Australia – as a result of their vision.”
The Northern Business Achievement Awards are a partnership of industry, education, local and state government and decision makers across Melbourne’s north.
Created by NORTH Link, with initial funding from the Victorian Government, the NBAA align with NORTH Link’s drive for economic development, marketing, and promotion of Melbourne’s north, by recognising local business achievement, encouraging innovation and providing valuable networks and opportunities for enterprise growth and development.
More than 200 people attended the NBAA Grand Finale Breakfast on December 5, with attendees treated to an entertaining keynote by comedian and presenter Denise Scott, and 13 awards presented on the morning including Business of the Year, which went to Thomastown cheese producer That’s Amore Cheese.
“Matthews Steer is proud to support the NBAA, and to do our part to recognise and reward businesses in Melbourne’s north that are actively demonstrating a growth mindset,” said Flapper.
