Ampcontrol UK wins prestigious Scottish Engineering award

In a further achievement to its listing as a finalist in the Ayrshire Business Chamber Awards late last year, Ampcontrol UK has received the prestigious Scottish Engineering President’s Award at Scottish Engineering’s annual awards dinner, held in Glasgow on 16 May 2019.

Ampcontrol UK was honoured for its significant contribution to both setting and raising the standard for the engineering sector.

Ampcontrol UK’s Managing Director Steven Edmund said, “We at Ampcontrol UK are delighted and honoured to be awarded the Scottish Engineering President’s Award. The competition for this prestigious award is always strong as the list of past recipients demonstrates.

“We thank the jury for selecting our organisation and, when reflecting on over 100 years of history, we thank our team. It is the passion and resolve of our people that’s seen us endure and thrive in the face of ever-changing market needs and demands.

“Our team members pride themselves on their ability to make durable, fit for purpose and, above all else, safe products and to provide high quality services in some of the most hazardous and demanding environments in the world. Today, we look forward to another successful 100 years!”

Ampcontrol UK celebrated 100 years of operation last year. Established in 1918, the company was originally known as Allenwest Wallacetown. In 2007, the business was acquired by global technology leader Ampcontrol. Since the company restructured in 2015, it has grown in leaps and bounds.

Edmund said, “The restructure meant a heavier focus on engineering and technical support for our existing site, and with the support of our Australian operations the development of new products and process improvement changes to enhance our technology. We know that one of our biggest differentiators is our reputation for supplying quality-made and fit-for-purpose products, along with our impressive product base.”

Ampcontrol UK is focussed on diversification in a number of areas within the European infrastructure markets, including large-scale tunnelling projects across major cities in the UK and Europe.
