SAGE Automation is thrilled to have been named the 2020 recipient of the Integrator Company Member of the Year Award by the Control System Integrators Association (CSIA).
The award recognises an integrator member that has participated significantly in the advancement of the association and profession.
CSIA made the announcement on May 20th, with the CSIA Awards Ceremony being hosted virtually for the first time.
SAGE Group Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Adrian Fahey, attended the virtual ceremony and confirmed it was a proud moment for the company to be recognised on the international stage.
“It is humbling for SAGE Automation to receive this award. As a growing global company, we take immense pride in our strong reputation as innovators within the industry.”
Fahey also acknowledged the value of CSIA and its community, “The CSIA has always been about best practices and benchmarks of the industry, it is a strong association that recognises ongoing innovation and advancement of the industry” he said.
SAGE has been a member of CSIA since 2002, and was the first Australian System Integrator to achieve certification in 2009. Since then a number of SAGE employees attend the CSIA Executive Conference in the United States every May. While the 2020 conference is on hold due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, association members from more than 27 countries were invited to attend the virtual award presentation this week.
Taking automation and innovation from backyard shed to the global stage
The award comes after SAGE celebrated its 25th birthday last year, marking a long journey from humble beginnings to a truly global business.
Growing from one brand to four distinct offerings under the SAGE Group brand, the company continues to benchmark itself against global leaders. Now employing more than 470 people across Australia and overseas, the company continues to promote a culture of applying best practices to every project.
In 2016, Mr Fahey was appointed to the CSIA’s board of directors, citing the value of engaging with leading integration companies and a desire to give back to the organisation as his motivation for being an association member.
As a system integrator working across multiple industries, from Defence, transport and manufacturing to utilities, energy and resources, SAGE is focused on learning from challenges or opportunities in each sector and applying that knowledge to other industries.
This year, SAGE Automation acquired a new system integrator business, expanding this capability further into Victoria, as well as in regional areas of Australia.
