Ray Otter wins industry award

The Australasian Wire Industry Association held it's Annual Conference in Lorne, Victoria over the weekend of October 10th - 12th culminating in the Annual Dinner and Presentation night attended by over 80 delegates and partners.

Highlighting the night was a special Industry Achievement Award presented to Ray Otter of Otter Fencing for his dedication and work involved in not only establishing the very first Chain Link Fencing Standard in Australia in 1975 but his current work in having the new Australian Standard implemented in 2003.

In presenting the Industry Achievement Award to Ray, Association President Malcolm Michael commended Ray's immense efforts and devotion to the Chain Link Fencing Industry since he commenced working with his father Jack in the 1950's.

Ray Otter has built Otter Fencing into one of Australia's leading fencing companies and has always had the long-term development of the industry as a driving passion.

AWIA Director Barry Loudon told delegates "Ray has also been instrumental in the current development of the Australian Chain Link Fencing Association which is striving to provide a voice for the industry and to ensure it's long term survival".

In accepting the Award Ray Otter confided that the new Australian Standard took three years of hard work and a lot of compromises amongst the various state delegates to get through. It was also Standards Australia's oldest document on their books. Ray mused that he hoped it wouldn't be another 28 years before the next review - and at any rate he would leave that to someone else in the future. Congratulations Ray from everyone at the association.
