ATM-AMAC Wins Qualifying Innovator Award

ATM-AMAC is thrilled to announce that they have been honoured as the winners of this year's prestigious Street Lighting Qualifying Innovator award. The recognition was bestowed during the LCRIG Innovation Festival held at Newark Showground earlier this month. The festival provided an exceptional platform for showcasing products, solutions, new innovations, and techniques through live demonstration sessions.

Delegates from the event had the opportunity to judge entries from various Qualifying Innovators over the course of two days. All scores were meticulously collated, and the LCRIG Infrastructure Innovation Board carefully reviewed the results before making the final decision on the winning innovations.

David Villars, Business Development Manager at ATM-AMAC, expressed his gratitude for the award, stating, "ATM-AMAC are delighted to have been awarded such a fantastic award, thanks to the support of many of the LCRIG members and Innovation Festival delegates. We’re looking forward to the collaboration opportunities this award will provide and to put it to good use in further innovating the local authority and street lighting measurement outputs via our Illumetric energy efficiency survey. 

Many thanks to everyone who voted and to LCRIG themselves for hosting such an amazing event in Newark, we can’t wait to show the positive benefits of the award and resultant collaborations."

As part of the award process, the ATM-AMAC team will now develop a proposal outlining the trial or detailing how the funding will be utilized. The proposal will then be evaluated by LCRIG's Infrastructure Innovation Board.

Kerry Winstanley, Operations and Finance Director at LCRIG, emphasised the significance of the Qualifying Innovator awards, which are linked with the LCRIG Innovation Fund: “The Qualifying Innovator awards are linked with the LCRIG Innovation Fund, which was established with the aim of encouraging innovation and to support innovators with finding a route to market. As CIC, it is important for us to give back and this underpins everything we do. A proportion of all sponsorship and exhibitor sales goes to the LCRIG Innovation Fund. 

We are very proud to be able to support the highways sector by providing funding for innovation development and facilitating trials with local authorities looking to trial new products on their networks. 

The standard of entries received was high and we would like to congratulate all this year’s winners – we are excited to see how the innovations progress. We would also like to thank everyone that took the time to submit entries and those that scored our Qualifying Innovators at the Innovation Festival.”
