B2C Technologies refurbishes donated computers and laptops for families in need.
Mayor Lawrie Cox said B2C Technologies had helped more than 8000 families nationally since 2009.
“We thought B2C Technologies was doing a fantastic job refurbishing computers for low income families so we nominated them for the Northern Business Achievement Awards,” Cr Cox said.
“We were thrilled to hear they won best Micro Business of 2018.
“We love seeing our local businesses awarded for their efforts, especially when it's for helping out others in our community.”
B2C Technologies director Claudio Angelucci thanked Council for the ongoing support while they provide assistance to people in need.
“Our belief is that no child should be left behind when it comes to accessing technology in the digital world that we live in,” Mr Angelucci said.
“By making technology more accessible B2C Technology is contributing to the future of our children so they can learn, feel included in the community, complete their education and enter the workforce with confidence.”
