“As an industry, we continue to face skill and labour shortages, rising costs of goods, and rapid evolution of the automotive landscape at the hands of electrification. However, we continue to face these challenges head-on and it is the actions of those honoured at the 2023 Industry Awards gala that are leading the way. I sincerely congratulate all award finalists and winners and look forward to following the stories of them all as they continue to forge their paths forward in the automotive industry.”
