2018 Award Nominee - Co-Ex Films Pty Ltd

Co-Ex Films commenced in 1997 as a supplier of plastic bags and has since transformed into a supplier of plastic film for food packaging. Current owner Steve McNaughton took over the business some 15 years ago and whilst ensuring the business was fully certified to ISO900 and HACCP, and that their equipment was systematically upgraded to suit their customer’s requirements in a changing marketplace for food packaging, Steve has made the conscious decision to remain a small business, in contrast to his larger competitors. This has provided Co-Ex with a customer focus and agility that has provided a competitive edge. Co-Ex work with local raw material suppliers to develop import replacement products, ensuring the Australian industry can provide local jobs for local people. On many occasions Co-Ex and their partners have been able to replace import products to ensure a strong and robust local market for manufacturing. Co-Ex are also committed to environmental management and were one of the first companies to sign up for “Operation Clean Sweep Australia” to minimise spillages of their primary raw material - plastic pellets, and have become a role model and a case study for other plastics manufacturers, suppliers and distributors.
