Eight times lucky for victorious Brother

15 Oct 13

Brother has scooped eight Good Design Awards in a global programme recognising product design, excellence and innovation.

The multiple wins see the company celebrate twenty consecutive years of Good Design Award honours, spanning over a total of 182 product categories.

Each product that receives a Good Design Award is given the ‘G Mark’ – a symbol recognised internationally and known among the general public as a trustworthy indicator of excellence and quality.

“These Award wins acknowledge that Brother continues to pave the way in innovation, technology and quality, all while reinforcing our ‘At your side’ customer commitment,” said Graham Walshe, Executive chairman, Brother NZ.

“It’s extremely pleasing to see our investment in delivering high-quality products recognised in this manner.”

The Good Design Awards were developed in Japan and have been running since 1957.
