NANOTEK a multiple finalist in Anthill Magazine’s Sixth Annual Cool Company Awards

Nanotek Car Cleaning has been named as a finalist in both the Innovation and Global Growth categories in Anthill Magazine’s 2011 Annual Cool Company Awards, a national program developed in 2006 to recognise Australian companies that are doing things differently to bring about positive change.

Over 700 aspiring ‘cool companies’ were nominated for the 2011 awards, making ‘The Cools’ one of Australia’s largest business awards programs. The winners were announced on Thursday 24 November 2011 and published on

“It takes more than a little effort to make car washing cool.” said James Tuckerman, Editor-In-Chief, Anthill Magazine. “The folks at Sydney-based Nanotek have pulled it off, though, combining a slick (literally) product with an aggressive franchising strategy that has established beachheads in more than a dozen nations.”

A field of hundreds was examined (and cross-examined) before Anthill judges were able to isolate three Finalists for each of the seven categories. Anthill judges were impressed by Nanotek’s sleek futuristic vibe and the company’s ability to exude a ‘coolness’ to which the car cleaning industry is unaccustomed.

Nanotek was also unique in being the only franchise system to be named as a finalist/winner, meaning that not only is Nanotek ‘cool’ but it is the only finalist/winner that offers to share it’s coolness through franchise ownership.

‘Franchising is a great model for us, and a great opportunity for people looking to own their own business, especially first time business owners.”, said Nanotek’s Business Development Manager, Adam Stone. “Franchisees are set up in a ‘turn-key’ business and from day one have the credibility of operating under a global brand with the backing and support of a multi-award winning franchise system.”

And what do they do for a good time? Clean cars! Seriously. Nanotek flew its head office staff into Melbourne for the 2011 Australian Motor Show. “We get to do a lot of motor shows and new model launches for manufacturers, so if you love cars it’s definitely a ‘perk’ of owning your own Nanotek franchise.” said Nanotek CEO, Jim Cornish.

So what is a ‘Cool Company’? Well according to Anthill, Cool Companies manage to stay one step ahead of the rest. They breed leaders who are rule-makers and rule-breakers. They are organisations that aspire to be admired. They are trend-setters in attitude and action. Quite simply, Nanotek is… cool!
