Our Mission

CY Innovations’ vision is for its Customers to have the support and software tools necessary for them to realize their true value by protecting their business knowledge. This is the intellectual property which normally leaves their office at 5 o’clock each night.

Our mission is to provide support, including on-site attendance and clever, practical solutions, at sensible prices, which will help our Customers design and use integrated quality, safety, environmental and risk management systems which work for them.


CY Innovations was inspired by the vision, ingenuity and dedication of engineer Charles Yelverton (CY) O’Connor who, at the close of the 19th century, was commissioned with the seemingly impossible task to build a pipeline to pump water 350 miles from the costal city of Perth to the heart of the arid desert and rich goldfields of central Western Australia.

CY O’Connor unfortunately succumbed to constant criticism about the project and took his own life 10 months before the first water arrived in Kalgoorlie on 22 January 1903.

Today the twin cities of Kalgoorlie/Boulder are a thriving metropolis which continues to provide the lifeblood of the Western Australian economy since gold was first discovered at Kalgoorlie in 1893.
