Sponsored by Pitcher Partners, Ampcontrol’s CTO Tim Wylie accepted the award, which recognises a business that has made significant contributions to their industry through the introduction or improvement of an idea, method, technology, process or application.
“As an engineering firm with a long history in the Hunter Region and one who continues to invest in R&D, we’re thrilled to be recognised with the Excellence in Innovation award at this years event,” said Tim Wylie.
“We’re fortunate here at Ampcontrol to have the necessary team diversity to not only come up with an idea like Gilghi, but to design, manufacture and deliver an off grid, fully transportable containerised water treatment system.”
The win at the Hunter Business Awards comes a day after the successful launch of the Gilghi Remote Water System at the indigenous community of Gillen Bore, 75km from Alice Springs in the Northern Territory.
As a result of this win, the Gilghi Remote Water System will proceed to the NSW Business Chamber State Business Awards to compete for the State’s top innovation honour this November.
