MARKHAM, ON, Nov. 23, 2011 /CNW/ - Quanser has been singled out as the
most innovative company in Markham, Ontario, one of Canada's leading
high tech communities.
Following acceptance of the award at the Markham Board of Trade's 21st Annual Business Excellence Awards Gala, Quanser CEO Paul Gilbert said,
"Everyone knows that Markham is a hotbed for high tech companies in
Canada, so we're truly honoured to be recognized in this way."
Quanser creates innovative hardware and software solutions for
engineering educators that motivate students to learn control and
mechatronics concepts more easily. These solutions act to engage
students directly, bring classroom theory to life through practical,
hands-on exercises and ultimately, graduate engineers who are ready to
apply their skills to solving real-world engineering challenges.
"This recognition is a reflection of our fundamental values, which are
to maintain a laser-like focus on innovation, invest in research and
development, build a team of extraordinarily talented people and,
always, to refuse to rest on our laurels, said Mr. Gilbert.
Gilbert added everyone in the company contributed significantly to
winning this award, and threw a spotlight on the Quanser engineering
team. "Our motto is 'Innovate. Educate.', and our engineers live that
Director of Engineering Paul Karam echoed those words. "Because our goal
is to teach engineering students to be creative innovators, we have to
be creative innovators ourselves. Our educational solutions have to
engage and captivate them with practical exercises that really bring
engineering challenges to life."
CEO Gilbert said some of the credit for the award belonged to the city
of Markham itself. "Markham's reputation as one of Canada's leading
"Silicon Valleys" helps us recruit talent. So we definitely want to
share this success with the municipality."
