Being recognised by your peers is one of the best accolades for any business and, in September, OEM Technology Solutions was awarded one of the highest honours in the NSW engineering industry, receiving two major awards at the annual Sydney division of Engineering Excellence Awards.

The company’s latest design innovation, the PC3 programmable controller, was given the top prize in the control systems and communications category at the awards as well as securing a highly commended in a second category, software and embedded systems.

This year’s awards were one of the most competitive in its 73-year history, with more than 87 entries.

“The win was a fantastic commendation for the hard work the OEM team has done in developing this new technology,” says OEM managing director Richard Gobee. “And it is in keeping with the theme of engineering Australia this year – the year of the engineering team because it was truly a collaborative effort. It is an honour to be recognised by the wider engineering community and shows that an Australian-owned company like ours is leading the world in this type of technology.”
