AROTEC Diagnostics has been awarded the top prize in the Hutt Valley Technology Valley Awards 2016
AROTEC was selected out of three finalists as the top business showing outstanding leadership and expertise in the Hutt Valleys Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Manufacturing (STEMM) sectors. The Technology Valley Awards were part of this year’s Hutt Valley STEMM Festival which involved a diverse programme of events and activities aimed at showcasing the many companies involved in STEMM in the Hutt Valley and the wealth of expertise and cutting edge science that exists within the Wellington region. The award ceremony was held at the iconic Ford Motor Company Building on Seaview road and saw the best and brightest individuals and businesses from around the Hutt Valley competing to be recognized for their successes. Awards were presented for outstanding individuals, the best STEMM project, as well the top STEMM educators, with the evening wrapping up with the presentation of the two most coveted prizes, the emerging business of the year (for a company incorporated less than five years ago) and the outstanding business of the year.
AROTEC faced tough competition with both Sanpro Industries Ltd and Pertronic Industries Ltd showcasing their technological capabilities and strong market presence. AROTEC eventually emerged victorious to take home the business of the year award. The judges’ commented that AROTEC is at the forefront of innovation in the Hutt Valley, expanding its reputation as a business rich in technological advancement at a global level, through our recognised position as the premium supplier of autoimmune diagnostics antigens in both the local and global markets.
As part of the STEMM festival, AROTEC also held an open day, inviting members of the community into our facility to showcase who we are and what we do, as well as a tour of the laboratory and the equipment we use to carry out our purification process for all the antigens and antibodies we produce. This event saw many people of all ages from all over the Hutt Valley turn up to hear about who we are and what we do. Our tours and presentations provided an exciting opportunity for young school children to learn more about Science and what a career in the Biotechnology industry can offer.
Feedback from the event was well received and many of our attendees commented on what a great experience it was for members of the community to see what goes on in a professional lab environment.
