Auckland, New Zealand-based builder Rayglass Boats won the Excellence in Exporting Award at the Auckland Chamber of Commerce’s Westpac Business Awards.

The award, which recognizes Rayglass’ overall business performance, the number of countries to which it exports, the company’s sustainability and its relationships with end users in different markets came after intensive interviews with key Rayglass staff and visits to Rayglass’ advanced manufacturing facility and showroom.

“The award also recognizes the substantial hurdles which Rayglass has to overcome in order to successfully compete in international markets,” Rayglass CEO Dave Larsen said in a statement. “We face challenges because of our geography, currency fluctuations and the often intense competition from competitors who are closer to our end users.”

Brunswick Corp. bought the New Zealand company in 2007.
