Starena wins Master Builders’ export award

Starena wins Master Builders’ export award
December 15, 2014

Seating solutions provider Starena has been awarded the prestigious National Export Award, Products and Manufacturing, at the Master Builders’ National Awards Ceremony, held recently at Parliament House in Canberra.

Offering a broad range of seating solutions, The Starena Group has expanded dramatically from its NSW Central Coast base over the past decade with offices in Cairo, Egypt; Athens, Greece and London, United Kingdom and more than 30 distributors worldwide.

Offering a broad range of stadium, venue, auditorium, house of worship, theatre and cinema seating, notable projects have included the Sydney 2000 and Athens 2004 Olympics; Commonwealth Games in Auckland, Melbourne and New Delhi, the Kiev and Lviv Stadiums for the UEFA 2012 European Championships and the Ziggo Dome Arena in the Netherlands.

Commenting on the receipt of the Master Builders award, Starena Managing Director Noel Carty (pictured below right) explained "this award is particularly significant to Starena and its sister company Jayline, in that it is recognition by the many peer building and construction firms that Starena works with in Australia.

"It was also pleasing to see that many of our clients were also either nominees or National Award winners – our congratulations to them."

This award follows on from the 2014 Premier’s NSW Export Award and the 2013 Australian Export Heroes Award, issued by Austrade and the Export Council of Australia.

The Starena Group designs and continually updates its products to provide maximum versatility, functionality and durability, as well as to ensure patrons comfort and safety. Starena, as a manufacturer in its own right also has strategic working relationships with a number of other key suppliers.

Sister company Jayline Australia provides a range of turf and ground protection, turf and ground stabilisation, flooring and matting solutions, and walkways and decking products.
