Cook Medical Australia has received the Lord Mayor’s Business Award for Investment in Brisbane.
Managing director Dr Samih Nabulsi said the award was a "humbling" recognition of the company's commitment to Brisbane and its people.
“We are humbled and honoured to receive the Investment in Brisbane award particularly knowing the achievements and contributions of our fellow finalists to business and the community in Brisbane,” said Nabulsi.
“Our win is a reflection of our team and their hard work."
The Investment in Brisbane award follows the company’s announcement earlier this year that it was expanding capacity with the establishment of a second manufacturing shift and the addition of 94 new jobs to meet increasing export demand.
The company also launched the Australian Research Council Research Hub for the Advanced Manufacturing of Medical Devices with the goal of transforming Australia’s medical technology industry.
“Manufacturing is essential to the economy and this expansion demonstrates Cook Medical’s commitment to manufacturing, innovation and jobs in Queensland,” said Dr Nabulsi.
