Hamilton Litestat has taken home Best Manufacturer at Voltimum’s Smart Solutions Awards 2018, having beaten out competition from ABB, Salus Controls and Theben.
The award win comes following Hamilton’s significant investment and support in promoting the smart control sector over the past 18 months. The firm has been hard at work dispelling myths around complicated installation and programming through training, education and youth marketing activities. The company hasn’t just seen success in the lighting control industry, however, with it also debuting the industry’s first 2.4A USB double switched socket in 2018.
Gavin Williams, marketing manager at Hamilton Litestat, says: “We’re thrilled to have won the Best Manufacturer 2018 award. We were up against stiff competition and to have been recognised by industry-leading organisation Voltimum is a real honour. Smart controls and easy-access education are two things that we are very passionate about, so to be recognised for our initiatives that span these areas is an affirmation that we’re providing the best possible support for the industry and installers.”
The Voltimum Smart Solutions Award for Best Manufacturer is given to the company ‘that has played a role in helping promote smart solutions into the marketplace’. It looks for ‘thought-leading brands who have consistently brought innovative products and services into the smart home and building automation market and who have committed to help train their installer customers and support their projects’. The award was given out on October 10 at The Digital Construction Hub, UK Construction Week 2018, at Birmingham’s NEC.
“The Smart Solutions Awards have always been our chance to say thank you to manufacturer’s hard work and to recognise their commitment to developing high calibre, highly skilled electrical professionals of the future,” says Rodney Jack, Editor at Voltimum UK & Ireland Ltd.
“In the ‘Best Manufacturer 2018’ category, the judges were deeply impressed by Hamilton Litestat’s commitment to educating and training the marketplace over the past year. I congratulate Hamilton Litestat as a finalist and, of course, as a winner.”
Hamilton Litestat recently announced that it will be exhibiting at EI Live 2019.
