Founded in 1968, Ampcontrol began as a ‘good idea of four friends, Peter Cockbain, Neville Sawyer, Keith Grant and Tony Studdert, 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 for the resources sector, the Ampcontrol founders established the technology platform and cultural vision for what would become Ampcontrol. Today, Ampcontrol is structured and mobilised to deliver integrated electrical, electronic and control solutions across a variety of industries and applications globally.

Co-founder and Company Director Peter Cockbain will detail the 50 year history of Ampcontrol, the highs and lows and provide an insight in what it takes to develop a company that engineers innovative solutions.
