Tipp Company In Innovation Award Finals


A Tipperary firm has made it to the finals of the Irish Times Innovation Awards 2017.

Thurles-based company Utillix is among the 21 finalists from established companies, innovators and start-ups which have been nominated.
There are seven categories in total and Utillix has been nominated in the Energy & The Environment category.

Set up in Australia by Tipp native Oliver Morrissey, it has been described as the ‘Google Maps of the underground’. Its app offers construction workers a vision of what’s underneath the ground before they begin to dig, avoiding dangerous and costly accidents.

The winners will be announced at a high profile awards ceremony in early October in Dublin.
