Scoot Boot wins its 2nd Tasmanian ICT Exporter of the Year Award

Scoot Boot has won its second Tasmanian ICT Exporter of the Year Award, which was announced at the TasICT gala dinner held at Blundstone Arena.

The win comes after the company, which manufactures and exports high performance hoof boots for horses, was awarded the Australian Trade and Investment Commission National E-Commerce Exporter of the Year late last year.

Accepting the award on Friday night, Scoot Boot co-founder Annette Kaitinis said she gave full credit to the Cambridge-based team who now exports to 110 countries worldwide.

"We’re honoured to receive this prestigious export award, which recognises our commitment to innovation in the global market,” Ms Kaitinis said.

“This achievement reflects the hard work and dedication of our entire team, as well as the trust and support of our manufacturer,’ she said.  

“We are dedicated to delivering high-quality products with the welfare of horses as paramount to everything we do. This award inspires us as we further scale the business locally and globally.”

The award was presented by the Honourable Eric Abetz, Minister for Business, Industry and Resources.

TasICT president David Mills said on the night the awards this year had record level entries of more than 60 and a full-house in attendance. 

Ms Kaitinis thanked Mr Mills and the TasICT Committee for their efforts as well as the sponsors and business enablers who had supported Scoot Boot over the years including Austrade, AusIndustry, IP Australia, TCCI, TasICT, ISW and the Honourable Madeleine Ogilvie, Minister for Small Business and Consumer Affairs.
