Servcorp wins Australian Exporter of the Year 2012 in Large Services category

28 Nov 2012 | Servcorp

Servcorp is delighted to have won the Large Services Award at the 50th Australian Export Awards 2012. The award tops off a big year for Servcorp, as it introduces new services and continues its strong overseas expansion, adding 18 new cities and 4 new floors to its global portfolio of Serviced and Virtual offices.

The Large Services Award recognises outstanding export achievement by established companies with annual sales of $15 million and more. 2012 saw a very high standard of competition, with Servcorp beating renowned companies including Aconex, Airnorth, Taspen Medical and Cardno to win the award.

Servcorp COO Marcus Moufarrige says the win is recognition of Servcorp as an Australian and global success story, and of having the courage to invest and expand throughout the recent downturn.

"It is fantastic to see the hard work of our staff recognised through this award, particularly those in our three biggest export markets of China, Japan and the Middle East. We also thank our customers for their support over the past year," Mr Moufarrige says.

"At Servcorp, we not only export our own services, but we empower other Australian businesses to export theirs, by providing them with the advanced infrastructure, support and presence of a multinational organisation without the financial investment or risk."

Servcorp is continuing its strong expansion within Australia, with the company recently announcing the launch of three new floors in Paramatta, Melbourne and Perth, and overseas. It views the Middle East and Saudi Arabia as key growth markets, as well as Asia. Servcorp is also continuing to add new products to reflect evolving needs and growing technology demands.

Ian Murray AM, Executive Director, Export Council of Australia observed that Servcorp is an outstanding example of a modern day exporter.

“Traditionally export businesses have come from resources or consumer products, however services-based companies offering IP, innovation and R&D, such as Servcorp, are the organisations growing to meet future global demand.”

"The innovation, persistence, and focus they have exhibited in taking on the world and winning, in a period where the AUD is high and economic recovery is very fragile in many markets, is testament to their tenacity." said Mr Murray
