Taipei, Taiwan (PRWEB) January 7, 2007
Antig Technology (http://www.antig.com), a leading provider of fuel cell solutions, today announced it had been awarded ZDNet Asia's Top Asia Techno Visionaries for 2006/2007. ZDNet Asia has introduced the Top Asia Techno Visionaries award category to recognize the innovative technologies coming out of Asia, a region that is already the world's manufacturing and service center. The award nominees were judged on six criteria: technology innovation, market potential, business model, investor/financial record, customer strategy, and creative branding/marketing. After careful consideration the ZDNet Asia team narrowed down the list to the top 10 picks for 2006/2007, among which Antig is the only Taiwan-based company.
"To be selected as the Top Techno Visionaries by the ZDNet Asia Top Tech Index editorial staff for this award is an important encouragement to Antig's pursuit of technology innovation and value creation efforts," said Bill Chen, CEO of Antig Technology. Antig's System-on-Cell Direct Methanol Fuel Cell (SoC DMFC) Module Solution is the first of its kind in the world, enabling the company to overcome huge technology and production cost barriers to commercialize fuel cell. Its modular, component-like solution design provides the clients a flexible platform to roll out applications, cutting down IT product makers' time to market and cost too.
According to Pierre Hennes, a partner with Upstream Ventures and advisor for ZDNet Asia's Top Tech Index said, "This year's Top Asian Techno Visionaries is indications of the promising future for Asia's entrepreneurs who are driving the emergence of Asian multinationals that could someday supplant foreign ones and dominate the Top Tech 50 list." Michael Leung, CIO of Bank of America, also commented that, "The Top 10 Asian Techno Visionaries are fine examples of how a technology company with vision, determination and talent could, like a David among Goliaths, grab its fair share of the market, and win the support of the community at the same time."
After showcasing at several ICT and Fuel Cell tradeshows throughout 2006, Antig will release more of its fuel cell solutions and application designs in 2007.
