Managing director Robert Nioa said the nomination recognises the company's important role in the Australian defence industry.

"We are an integral part of the Australian defence industry base, recognised as a key input to the nation's defence capability," said Nioa.

"We're doing our part to support Australia's service men and women safely and effectively undertake tactical and peacekeeping operations abroad and domestic counter-terrorism activities at home.

"On behalf of everyone at NIOA, we thank the judges at the Telstra Business Awards for their recognition and look forward to the remainder of the journey."
