Nicholas Hamilton, general manager, explained his business was industrial instrumentation, process controls and automation.

"We like to affectionately think of ourselves as the eyes, ears, smell, taste and touch of the industrial world. Instrumentation and process control is like the brain hub for the equipment in charge of running mines, water facilities, factories and farms,” Mr Hamilton said.

"We recently opened our office to the community of Gympie with a mini trade show, which illuminated the fascinating world of instrumentation and process control.

The win on Saturday night for the company is the icing on the cake.

"Hamilton I&E are super proud of the team effort to win the Innovation Award from the Gympie Chamber of Commerce.

"A big shout out to Adam, Clint, Chris, Ashleigh and the rest of the team for their amazing efforts over the last 12 months in helping the Hamilton team reaching and exceeding their goals,” Mr Hamilton said.
