Quality Tile Setters Scoops The Youth Entrepreneur Award

Congratulations to Quality Tile Setters for winning the Ministry of Youth and Sports Youth Entrepreneur Award at the 2015 Westpac Prime Minister’s Exporter of the Year Awards.

Quality Tile Setters managing director, Abhinesh Chand, built his company with only $25.

Today the company is the proud recipient of the Ministry of the Youth and Sports Youth Entrepreneur Award during the annual event of the Exporters Awards evening.

“I feel excited, very happy and a lot of satisfaction. If you win an Award at the Prime Minister’s Exporter of the Year Awards, it means you have been recognised as a businessman,” Mr Chand said.

“I formed Quality Tile Setters in 2008 and it has been a struggle. I started my business with $25, became a professional tiler and started employing youth, school dropouts and I trained them on the job.”

Mr Chand felt proud and thankful that his company had been honoured and the win motivated him to do better.

“Quality Tile Setters is made up of school dropouts including myself but we’re all professionals and this Award shows we are winners,” he said.

The recognition has been one of his highlights for the year and brings the total number of Awards won in 2015 to five.

Mr Chand is a firm believer in giving back to the community.

He has conducted over 100 community service projects this year deriving great satisfaction from helping the less fortunate.

He will continue his work and train as many youth as he can, encouraging them to take the first step in helping themselves.
