2019 Essington Lewis Awards
The Essington Lewis Awards are designed to recognise excellence in industry and the Department of Defence collaboration, working together to overcome challenges or problems – ensuring that the ADF has or will have the materiel it needs, when it needs it, and at a cost that represents value for money.
This perpetual trophy is named in honour of Mr. Essington Lewis, the WWII industrialist credited with cementing Defence Industry as a key economic and capability force. Trophies and certificates will be awarded at a Gala dinner in Canberra in August, 2019.
