Health and wellbeing were the centre of attention for award-winning
New Zealand engineering company Milmeq when they hosted a “You Matter Day” to

Milmeq has always had an ethos that it is the people that make the business. Their focus on people extends beyond their own staff, clients and suppliers to those in the wider community.
Milmeq was built on a philosophy of philanthrophy and is passionate about supporting the communities that their team live and work in.

Milmeq have challenged 40 male staff members across its Auckland and Dunedin offices to grow their most creative moustache in support of creating awareness of men's health and wellness issues.
Milmeq specialises in providing a complete design, manufacturing, installation and maintenance service for primary food processing operations. One of its latest innovations is a robotic storage and retrieval system named Milmeq Fully Automated Stock Transfer, or 'MFAST', developed to help large primary food processors achieve labour, space and time savings in materials handling.
Milmeq has been scooping up national excellence, innovation and business awards, including Supreme Business Excellence winner at the recent Westpac Auckland Business Awards Best of the Best, helping realise the company’s vision to become a world leading contracting supplier to the primary food processing industry.
Chief Executive Officer Mike Lightfoot said the run of awards is recognition of the company’s world-class quality innovation and attributes the ongoing success to his 130 plus staff.
Milmeq halted production on Friday in order to take a holistic look at staff wellness, from health to finance.
The day saw Milmeq’s 75 Dunedin staff enjoy a fully-funded schedule of flu vaccinations and medical checks, information from medical insurance and financial experts, breath-testing demonstrations, road safety tips from the police and even alcohol-free wine tasting. Staff also received goodie bags filled with health foods, brochures and vouchers.
