Celebrating 50 Years
Our story is one full of twists and turns, technological firsts, impressive growth and global reach, founded on a simple yet rock solid foundation of innovation.
It all started April 1 1968 when Neville Sawyer proposed a business partnership to Peter Cockbain, Keith Grant and Tony Studdert. We’re proud of these humble beginnings in a small shed in Newcastle. From here, we grew and expanded our footprint to deliver innovative solutions across the globe.
Today Ampcontrol is a leader in electrical and electronic engineering with proven experience across a range of industries. We’re proud to have created new industry benchmarks and embedded our technology into some of the largest industrial applications around the world.
50 years of leading industry innovation.
Our story humbly began as the ‘good idea’ of four friends who thought they had what it took to change the way things were done. From forming a series of businesses, which enabled them to develop and manufacture new technology for the resources sector the Ampcontrol founders established the technology platform and cultural vision for what would become Ampcontrol.
Celebrating our greatest asset.
It’s our people who make Ampcontrol the success story it is today. Every individual brings experience and knowledge that when combined as a whole, enables us to create solutions to challenges when others can’t.
Explore our people’s stories through our Life at Ampcontrol series where we take a look at their career paths, favourite projects and daily life.
