Hemisphere GPS Wins Deloitte Technology Green 15 Award and Named Finalist for the ASTech Leadership Foundation Award



    CALGARY, Sept. 25 /CNW/ - (TSX: HEM) Hemisphere GPS, a leading designer
and manufacturer of advanced GPS products, was honored with the Deloitte
Technology Green 15 Award at a ceremony in Calgary last night. The award
recognizes companies creating innovative, important, and economically viable
intellectual property in the burgeoning field of green technology. Deloitte
Technology Green 15 companies are judged on technology solutions that deliver
both a significant environmental impact and a compelling return on investment
for their clients. Growers who utilize Hemisphere GPS ground agriculture
Outback Guidance(R) technology realize a significant return on their
investment. These products enable them to apply seed, fertilizer, and
chemicals with precision; thus reducing overall input costs and waste. In
turn, these savings have a positive impact on the environment as less fuel is
utilized, fewer vehicle emissions are released and less chemicals are applied.
    Also, Hemisphere GPS was named finalist for the Alberta Science and
Technology (ASTech) Leadership Foundation Award for its outstanding commercial
achievement in science and technology. The ASTech Awards are among the highest
honors available to individuals and organizations whose outstanding work has
had an impact on science, technology, business, medicine, the environment and
the lives of people in Alberta and all over the world. The Award winners will
be announced at the 2008 ASTech Gala on October 24, 2008, in Edmonton,
Alberta.
    "These awards represent our continued team effort to develop products and
technology that offer a great value to our customers and partners, and have a
positive environmental impact," said Steven Koles, President and CEO of
Hemisphere GPS. "We are honored and proud to receive these recognitions and to
be in the company of several outstanding finalists and winners."
    Hemisphere GPS also enjoyed recognition in a number of awards recently.
Earlier this year, Hemisphere GPS was recognized as one of Alberta's Fast 50
by Alberta Venture magazine, and earlier this month, the company's President
and CEO was named one of Calgary's Top 40 Under 40 by CalgaryInc magazine.
