Ian Hedley wins The Warren Centre “Innovation Hero” Award
We congratulate DCC client, Ian Hedley, Managing Director of Hedweld Engineering Pty Ltd, on receiving an ‘Innovation Hero’ Award recently.
The annual Innovation Heroes awards are an initiative of The Warren Centre, and recognise outstanding innovation in engineering technology. An “Innovation Hero” is a person, or team, that successfully develops a new technology into a commercial product or service, which in turn creates social and economic benefits for Australia.
During our long history with Hedweld, DCC has obtained extensive Australian and overseas patent and trade mark rights for the steady stream of innovative products that Ian and his team have produced. We are delighted with this recognition of his continuing contribution.
