Infolink.com.au has announced the results of their inaugural Top Trusted Brands 2012 survey to reveal Australia’s best brands in the architecture, building, construction and design industries. 

With 629 nominated brands and a total of 6,054 votes, Dulux Australia was named the number one Top Trusted Brand for 2012. 

Account Manager for Infolink.com.au, Chris Mottershead said, “This survey provides business owners with a blue-print for what Australian’s are looking for in a product or service – no matter what industry you are in, the path to earning success is exactly the same.”

The survey revealed the qualities customers are looking for in a top trusted brand, including great service, trust, reliability, lifetime warranty guarantee and great products. 

Companies were competing for a place in the overall Top 10 Trusted Brands for 2012 with Dulux Australia placing first, CSR Gyprock placing second and Blum Australia placing third. 

“Our expectations have been surpassed. The enthusiasm of voters and the industry involvement has been very positive. It’s likely that this will become an inaugural survey that could mark historical rises and falls in various brands,” said Mr Mottershead. 

Companies offering products or services were nominated for recognition in one of 44 categories to highlight their innovation, application or quality in a particular area. 

Infolink.com.au customers voted for their favourite brands by allocating a maximum of 10 votes to 10 different nominated brands between 16 August and 1 October 2012.
