The Newcastle-based advanced manufacturing and technology business company was one of four category winners announced in a special live-stream event hosted online by the NSW Minerals Council.
The company was recognised for its innovation and service in delivery to mining clients in NSW.
Accepting the accolade at an online ceremony, Ampcontrol CEO Rod Henderson said what the past few months had shown through these challenging times was the incredible ingenuity and agility of advanced manufacturing in Australia.
"We are thrilled to receive this highly regarded industry recognition for being an innovative solutions provider for our customers," he said.
"We have such highly advanced expertise, skill, and capability in our country, this award is a testament to that ingenuity and the hard-working people that power our resources sector."
Young entrepreneur and Indigenous business owner Steven Fordham was recognised for his business acumen and service to the community, providing job opportunities in mining to Aboriginal men as part of their reintegration into the community after incarceration.
NSW deputy premier and minister for resources John Barilaro said he had been heartened by the way mining communities, workers, supply businesses and mining companies had rolled up their sleeves and lent a hand during the recent drought, the devastating bushfires, and the COVID-19 crisis that NSW had experienced over the past year.
"I particularly commend you for how your industry has supported so many people in regional NSW during tough times," he said.
NSW Minerals Council CEO Stephen Galilee praised the outstanding finalists and all working in mining across NSW who have risen to the challenge of operating during the COVID-19 pandemic.
