Ged Tyrrell is the Managing Director of Tyrrell Systems Ltd. Here is a man who lives, breathes and eats control systems, and has done so since he left school. Realising the future of interconnectivity and integration, he setup his own company in 97 to focus on just that. Not satisfied with the status quo, Ged is continually seeking ways to push the industry forwards in controls, integration and automation, taking advantage of the latest available technology wherever possible. Lately, Ged has led his team into the delivery of commercial controls delivery with open source technology and off-the-peg open hardware.
