Gallagher has won at the New Zealand Engineering Innovators of the Year Award at the New Zealand Engineering Excellence Awards held in Auckland late November. 

A Gallagher product development team responsible for designing 2 world-leading perimeter security technology devices – the K20 Tensioner Link System and Z10 Tension Sensor – collected the award.

“There were many people at Gallagher involved in this project along the way,” said senior product manager, Craig Malins. “We’re honoured to have been selected alongside some of New Zealand’s top engineers, as winners of such a prestigious award.”

Gallagher has been collecting a number of honours across the world for its strength in the design and manufacture of security products. This latest award recognises a commitment to innovation and excellence in engineering by an individual or a team.
