The Andrew Solutions facility in Wollongong, New South Wales—which has developed innovative location technology for commercial and emergency services applications worldwide—has been named “Business Of The Year” by the Illawarra Business Chamber.

The Andrew Wollongong team was one of 220 nominated companies competing in various categories for awards at the 2009 Illawarra Business Awards ceremony. Andrew, the CommScope division that is a global leader in wireless communications products and systems, also won “Business of the Year” in its category of Information, Communication and Technology, making it eligible for the overall award.

“This award is a reflection of the dedication, passion and teamwork that continues to produce innovative location technology solutions for use in Australia and around the world,” said John Baker, vice president and general manager, Network Solutions, Andrew. “The world-class efforts of the Wollongong team are truly making a difference—from helping emergency responders provide aid to someone in need to assisting network operators in deploying location-enabled networks that offer information-rich commercial services to its customers.”

Award winners were determined, in part, on how the business differentiated itself over the past year, the significance of the local operation’s growth in international markets, and how the business benefits the Illawarra region’s international profile.

The approximately 80 employees at the Wollongong facility, part of Andrew’s Network Solutions organization, are devoted to global research and development activities in support of Andrew GeoLENs™, a complete portfolio focused on location-enabling public wireless, wired broadband, internet service provider, and enterprise and government IP networks.

“As a world leader in location solutions, Andrew has continually invested strategically in location technologies research and development in order to help mobile operators and carriers create new revenue streams and address their customers’ requirements,” said Baker. “Our Wollongong team is the pinnacle of that effort and are deserving of this great recognition from their local business community.”
