EIS takes out top spot in national industry award

​Local company, EIS Automation and Electrical, took out the top spot at the 2017 Master Electricians Excellence Awards, which were held in Auckland on Friday August 25.

In addition to claiming the overall Master Electricians Excellence Award, EIS also took home the Skills Industrial Automation Award for its work on the new, state-of-the-art waste water treatment plant in Queenstown after gaining finalist spots in three categories of the Awards.

EIS CEO, Dean Addie, said he and the staff at EIS were elated with the win.

“It’s an honour to receive such high recognition at a national level,” he said.

Mr Addie said the treatment plant utilised unique electrical and automation systems and efficiency management, with their team working hard to provide effective, innovative solutions.

“While it’s true that the team working on this project have delivered a fantastic result for our client, it’s the whole team at EIS that work together to make sure that we do great things. This is for the whole team at EIS for delivering awesomeness,” Mr Addie said.

The biennial Awards celebrate excellence in the electrical industry and provide recognition for electrical and automation contractors who produce innovative solutions and quality workmanship in challenging electrical projects. Feedback from the judges on EIS’ entry highlighted exceptional planning, workmanship, innovation, and initiative in every area of the project – all attributes displaying and exemplifying excellence.

There had been a record number of entries in the Awards this year and Master Electricians’ Chief Executive, Neville Simpson, said judges visited a wide variety of projects before narrowing down the 18
finalists across six categories.

“The Awards are a great opportunity for businesses to showcase their workmanship and innovation, and be given the chance to compete with industry peers,” Mr Simpson said.

EIS has offices in Invercargill, Christchurch and Timaru, and works on industrial electrical and automation engineering projects throughout New Zealand.
