Weathertex has taken FIRST PLACE in Architecture & Design’s annual Top Trusted Brands readers’ survey for 2016. The much anticipated poll reveals Australia’s 100 best brands in the architecture, building, construction and design industries.
The GreenTag certified Australian company came out on top from 341 nominated brands and a total of 13,456 votes as Australia’s favourite building product brand.
GreenTag also made it into the top 100 trusted brands along with twenty three other nominated GreenTag related brands.
“Green certification is certainly making an impact, “ says David Baggs, GreenTag’s CEO. “We are thrilled for Weathertex’s result and also that 24% of all products in the Top 100 are GreenTag clients. Not to mention our own improved performance and presence as the only Product Certification Program in this year’s Top 100 most trusted brands. You can’t beat #1 position, however, and Weathertex, which achieved a GreenTag Platinum certified status in 2016 as well, most definitely deserves this level of recognition by the industry.”
The 2016 survey revealed the common themes associated with a trusted brand, includes great service, products and reliability – as well as other socially driven themes of eco-friendliness and Australian made.
Weathertex placed first overall in the survey, followed by Dulux Australia and Bluescope Lysaght. The company also won NUMBER 1 most trusted brand within the external cladding category.
Jason O’Hagan, Managing Director for Weathertex said, “This is a fantastic and a significant result for Weathertex to be recognised by our customers as the number 1 trusted brand against such large reputable corporations. It demonstrates the hard work and commitment of our team and confirms our customers are after high quality building products that are sustainable and eco-friendly to our environment at no extra cost.”
2016 has been a year of achievements and wins for Weathertex, firstly being the FIRST MANUFACTURED PRODUCT in the world to receive GreenTag Platinum certification for their natural range and now ending the year being recognised as the MOST TRUSTED brand.
Weathertex is committed to continuing providing the best service and high quality products to our customers as well as play a crucial role in improving the sustainability of Australian construction products and practices.
