SYDNEY, Australia -- Strategic Marine chairman and founder Mark Newbold has won an Ernst & Young Australian Entrepreneur of the Year Award in the products category.

"It has been a momentous year for us in many ways," says Newbold. "We are now one of the world leaders in the construction of offshore crew boats and have broken into the steel shipbuilding market, with the capacity to build and fit out sizeable vessels of up to 200 m (656 ft)."

In the past 12 months, Strategic Marine has also won the Australian Chamber of Commerce Vietnam Business Excellence Award, the Large Advanced Manufacturer Award in the WA Export Awards, as well as the WA Business News "Rising Star" Award.
