Mount Isa’s ADG Corporation had the widest grins in the house as they took out the top honour in the 2017 Northern Outback Business Awards at the Civic Centre on Saturday.
The Mica Creek Rd-based company which specialises in skilled labour hire, machine operation and contracts took out the business of the year award and two other awards on the gala night.
ADG’s Julie Schalin said they were so thankful.
“We’ve got an amazing team which aren’t here tonight,” she said.
Julie – who owns the business with husband Anthony Facelli - said their integrity, strong work ethic and core values were the driving force behind their success.
