GPS, a leading designer and manufacturer of advanced GPS products, was honored
with the Deloitte Technology Green 15 Award at a ceremony in Calgary last night. The award recognizes companies
creating innovative, important, and economically viable intellectual property
in the burgeoning field of green technology. Deloitte Technology Green 15 companies are
judged on technology solutions that deliver both a significant environmental
impact and a compelling return on investment for their clients. Growers who utilize Hemisphere GPS ground
agriculture Outback Guidance technology realize a significant return on their
investment. These products enable them to
apply seed, fertilizer, and chemicals with precision; thus reducing overall
input costs and waste. In turn, these
savings have a positive impact on the environment as less fuel is utilized,
fewer vehicle emissions are released and less chemicals are applied.
Also, Hemisphere GPS was named finalist for the Alberta Science and Technology (ASTech) Leadership
Foundation Award for its outstanding commercial achievement in science and technology. The ASTech Awards are among the highest
honors available to individuals and organizations whose outstanding work has
had an impact on science, technology, business, medicine, the environment and
the lives of people in Alberta and all over the
world. The Award winners will be
announced at the 2008 ASTech Gala on October 24, 2008, in Edmonton, Alberta.
“These awards represent our continued team effort
to develop products and technology that offer a great value to our customers
and partners, and have a positive environmental impact,” said Steven Koles, President and CEO of Hemisphere GPS.
“We are honored and proud to receive these recognitions and to be in the
company of several outstanding finalists and winners.”
Hemisphere GPS also enjoyed recognition in a number
of awards recently. Earlier this year, Hemisphere GPS was recognized as one of Alberta’s Fast 50 by Alberta
Venture magazine, and earlier this month, the company’s President and CEO
was named one of Calgary’s Top 40 Under 40 by CalgaryInc magazine.
