Triodent wins at New Zealand International Business Awards
Triodent has won a major business award for the second time in a month.
The company won the award for Best Use of Research and Development in International Business, one of four special categories at the New Zealand International Business Awards (IBA) held on September 30. Triodent was also a finalist in the category for Most Innovative Approach to International Business.
The International Business Awards, organised by New Zealand Trade and Enterprise, a government economic development agency, are New Zealand's premier business awards.
Early in September Triodent won its category in the New Zealand branch of the American Chamber of Commerce Export Awards for sales to the United States.
Triodent founder and CEO Dr Simon McDonald said he was surprised and delighted to win the IBA award.
"It's a celebration of our efforts, recognition and reward for all the people who have worked behind the scenes," Dr McDonald said.
He started Triodent in 2003 to develop and market his invention, the V-Ring Sectional Matrix System. That has been succeeded by the V3 System, which picked up where the V-Ring left off, winning numerous industry accolades.
"I'm personally astonished and totally delighted that we have done so well," Dr McDonald said."
