Staff at Toby Churchill welcomed Lord Lieutenant of Cambridgeshire Hugh Duberly to their premises in Over this week.

He was there to present company owner and chairman David Collison with the Queen’s Award for Enterprise.

Mr Collison received a commemorative rose bowl to mark the text-to-speech device firm’s success in the international trade category for the third time.

“I am enormously grateful for this recognition by Her Majesty the Queen,” said Mr Collison.

“It is a clear indication of the success of the company since it was founded by Toby Churchill himself in 1973.

“I am proud to be able to move the company forward under my stewardship and provide devices that make a meaningful impact on the lives of their users.

“My team here are dedicated to maintaining our position as the market leader in innovative communication aid technology.”

The award was in recognition of the company’s export achievement in 25 countries, supplying its flagship product – the Lightwriter. The device has been translated into 13 different languages.
