In September 2016, Blis Technologies received two Otago Southland awards in the Deloitte Fast 50 at an event in Dunedin. Fast 50 takes place in 32 countries around the world, and the Deloitte Fast 50 ranks and celebrates fast growing companies. Blis won the awards for Fastest Growing Exporter and Fastest Growing Mature Business and was confirmed as one of the national Fast 50 companies.
CEO Brian Watson said the awards were due to a lot of hard work from a lot of people. “We have been focusing on improving systems, concentrating effort in specific offshore markets and developing a solid strategy especially related to our finished goods. It takes time and teamwork and these awards help remind us that the work we are doing creates results.”
