CUMBERLAND Local Business Awards judges have been impressed by the outstanding quality of this year's finalists.
Precedent Productions managing director and Awards founder Steve Loe said judges were amazed at how the standard of awards finalists continued to rise each year.
"Our panel of judges told us that they were impressed by the high quality of every finalist they have visited," he said.
"But knowing the Cumberland business community as I do, it comes as no surprise as I have watched them continuously adapt over the decades to meet changes in technology and the evolving needs of their customers.
"The response of the wider Cumberland in its support of the awards also comes as no surprise.
"This is a community that supports its own, which is what makes it such a popular place to live and work."
There are only a few weeks left until the winners of this year's are announced at a gala presentation.
Mr Loe called on the community to recognise the generosity of the Awards' platinum sponsor Cumberland Council with major sponsors Wenty Leagues Club, Stockland Merrylands and Primewest Auburn Megamall and support sponsors, Dooleys Catholic Club Lidcombe, Lidcombe Centre and the Merrylands Chamber of Commerce.
"Without their support, this program would simply not be possible," he said.
This year's category winners will be announced at a presentation evening on Tuesday, May 29, at Wenty Leagues.
