Prolec recognized for engineering innovation and efficiency

Prolec achieved considerable recognition at the inaugural Plantworx Awards for Innovation, a new event to celebrate the best new products in the UK construction equipment industry.

The awards are given to the most innovative products introduced to the UK market during the past year, and are judged by an independent panel of industry experts. Their decisions are based on the innovativeness of the entry, and how widely it could potentially benefit the construction industry.

Prolec achieved not just the runner-up spot amongst seventeen contenders in the Engineering Innovation category, but was also ‘Highly Commended’ in the Efficiency Innovation category. The recognition was for the Prolec Machine Engine (PME), a modular electronic system designed to capture machine, position and load data for construction and demolition equipment. It can provide both safety and guidance functions, where previously multiple systems were necessary. Simple installation and software-based upgrade paths make PME a highly flexible option – something that particularly impressed the judging panel.

Gary Tuffy, Prolec director of sales and marketing explains:

“We’re very proud of PME – it’s a product we believe in passionately, and have spent many working hours developing and fine-tuning. It’s extremely gratifying to see that effort recognized by the widely experienced group of construction industry professionals that comprise the Plantworx Innovation Awards judging panel.”

Prolec’s engineering director, Tony Adams, led the engineering team:

“Our aim was to consolidate all Prolec’s safety and guidance products into one platform, where previously we had over twenty. This provides a great benefit in maintenance, stock holding and cost.”
