Ampcontrol welcomes new Board members

Ampcontrol, one of Australia’s leading engineering and manufacturing suppliers to the power, mining and infrastructure sectors, has secured two new Board members, David Scammell and Matthew Turner.

With the majority shareholding held by private investors, including the original founder of the business, Peter Cockbain, the injection of new members has been welcomed by Board of Directors Chairman, Terry Lawler.

“We are very pleased to welcome David and Matthew to the Board of Ampcontrol and believe their contribution will be beneficial to the ongoing success and sustainability of the business” Terry said.

This follows the recent vote of confidence shown by the Board by incorporating the role of Managing Director into incumbent Ampcontrol CEO, Rod Henderson nearly 10 months ago.

“It is an important time for Ampcontrol as we seek to cement ourselves in markets where our technology and experience are of extreme value. High growth markets within the Australian economy such as Infrastructure and Renewables are natural synergies for Ampcontrol, whose pedigree is in the integration of electrical power infrastructure and electrical protection technology,” Terry continued.

Ampcontrol was recently awarded the contract to design and supply the temporary power infrastructure to the WestConnex and NorthConnex projects in Sydney. The business continues to develop its technology and service offering to both the coal and hard rock mining markets within Australia, as well as developing its business offering in South East Asia.
