CPR Global Tech Ltd, welcomed the Lord Lieutenant, Louise Fleet, to its Swansea Headquarters on Wednesday (30th June) to officially receive the 2020 Queen’s Award for Enterprise – the second time the company has been awarded the prestigious accolade.
The company, which manufactures the world’s best-selling nuisance call blocking device, was honoured with a Queen’s Award for Enterprise: International Trade in April 2020 for a second time after winning the same prestigious award in 2018.
CPR Global Tech Awarded for the Second Time
The socially distanced award presentation, which was postponed from last year due to the pandemic, took place at the company’s offices in Swansea Enterprise Park. Lord-Lieutenant, Louise Fleet, and one of her deputy lieutenants, Brian Thorne, presented the award in the presence of all staff members and key partners such as Swansea University. They are working with CPR Global Tech on its latest product, CPR Guardian 3, which is an SOS personal alarm smartwatch with an emergency alert button, fall detector, heart rate monitor and GPS location tracker.
The Queen’s Award for Enterprise annually recognises UK businesses for outstanding performance in one of four categories and CPR Global Tech was selected in the ‘International Trade’ category after achieving significant growth in overseas markets over the last 3 years.
CPR Global Tech was established in 2010 to tackle the growing problem of nuisance calls and produce a range of stand-alone call blocking devices that plug into landline phones and allow the user to cut off and permanently block nuisance and scam calls. As the issue of nuisance calls grew into a global problem, CPR followed suit and moved into foreign markets including the USA, Australia and throughout countries in Europe.
The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are the UK’s highest accolades in recognising success in business and CPR Global Tech is one of a very small number of Welsh businesses to be awarded the honour.
CEO, Andrew Sandbrook, commented, “We were delighted to welcome the Lord Lieutenant and her deputy to our headquarters and talk to them about how the company has progressed since we were established in 2010. We have worked tirelessly towards eradicating nuisance calls and we intend to use our award win as a springboard to carry on the fight and also grow our other care technology products such as the CPR Guardian 3 Smartwatch, to help protect those who are amongst the most vulnerable in society. To receive this prestigious award for a second time, especially after such a tumultuous year, is such an incredible boost and is testament to all the hard work put in by every member of staff over the last 11 years.”
After expressing regret that she was unable to shake hands, the Lord Lieutenant spoke about the magnitude of CPR’s achievement, she said, “Many, many congratulations. This award is considered to be the highest accolade to be bestowed upon a UK business and recognises CPR Global Tech for having shown outstanding achievement in international trade. And to win it for a second time is a fantastic achievement - you are clearly doing fantastic work in your sector and deserve this recognition.”
