Pact Group named one of BRW’s 50 Most Innovative Companies for second consecutive year

13 December 2014

A world-first, the RMP noisewall comprises 5000 panels constructed over a 12-month period and spans a 27-kilometre stretch of the Peninsula Link in Victoria. The heavy-duty panels are designed to diffuse noise as it passes through the material, absorbing and reflecting sound through a hollow core. The panels are supported by galvanised steel universal beams and a simple mounting system. The RMP noisewall have an extended design life and are an alternative to traditional noise abatement materials (timber, concrete, hebel and steel) that are slow and costly to install due to their weight. Subsequent to the success of Peninsula Links’s noisewall, Pact Group has been selected to supply some 55,000 square metres of panels to the new M5 freeway in Sydney. Potential future projects include M2 (Sydney), M8 (Sydney) and a motorway in Europe.

The BRW 50 Most Innovative Companies 2014 is arbitrated in conjunction with Inventium, a specialist innovation consultancy that applies the latest findings from psychology and neuroscience to assist organisations gain a competitive advantage through innovation. The awards assess companies on innovation that is defined as “change that adds value”. Entrants undertake a series of assessments including interviews by the judges, providing an overview of the process undertaken and demonstrating how innovation is integrated and embedded into the organisation’s structures, strategy and capabilities.

Commenting on the list BRW editor Michael Bailey said, “Innovation is not just about what happens inside your business, it is also about your company’s external relationships.

“We have seen the best innovators in Australia and been inspired by the partnerships they have developed and the level of creative thinking displayed.”

This is the second year on the BRW Most Innovative Companies list for Pact Group, having been recognised in 2013 for it’s reward and recognition program – Applause.
