Among the highlights were Kwinana firms Media Engine and All-Go Engineering, each picking up two awards.
Marketing and web design firm Media Engine, set up just three years ago, scooped the coveted Business of the Year Award as well as the Small Business 6-18 Employeees category.

All-Go Engineering won in the Medium Business category, and the firm’s long-serving staff member Christopher Atkins won the Outstanding Employee Award. He has been with the company for 19 years and worked his way up to operations manager.
