A great achievement

C BS Power Solutions (Fiji) started off with only two staff members in 2006. From then until now it has grown rapidly employing more than 50 permanent Fijians, majority being below 35 years of age.

The company's general manager and director Amit Singh said they did renewable energy projects and provided engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services in Pacific Island countries. With the vision to "make basic power accessible to all people" Mr Singh said their focus was to help businesses improve their productivity levels and to achieve financial, economic and environmental benefits and help individuals and the poor improve their living standards.

Winning this year's Best Large Business Operating Internationally at the Prime Minister's International Business Awards was a big achievement.

"It's a well-deserved award for the company and in particular for me it was an extremely emotional moment and a huge achievement.

"Last year we celebrated our 10 years achievement of excellence, experience and expertise and this year we were recognised through the Prime Minister's International Award, it was a timely and much needed award to keep us motivated and continue to help the local economy by getting foreign revenue through renewable energy projects," Mr Singh said.

He said this was the second year they applied for the Prime Minster's International Business Award, the first was in 2016. "We were confident but not overconfident knowing that a lot of companies will be applying for the 12 awards. We were very optimistic and now we are very proud to be the winners of this prestigious award."

Mr Singh said the management faced a lot of challenges over the past 11 years as they maintained and sustained the business while focusing on the positive growth of the company.

If there were lessons learnt over the years these are to always learn from mistakes and try not to repeat them. Keep employees engaged at all times and in all your business plans so they better understand and deliver more and most importantly that things are not always in black or white for at times they are grey as well. But it should be your objective to turn that grey to black or white, he said.
