A Swansea-based telecommunications technology firm has won a major national export award in London.
CPR Global Tech, which manufactures the world’s best selling nuisance call blocking technology, CPR Call Blocker, as well as a GPS tracking smartwatch for children called WATCHU GPS, won the Innovation in Exporting category at the UK Export Excellence Awards 2017 held in London on 15 June 2017.
CPR won the award after the judges, which include experts from some of the UK’s leading institutions, revealed the company had achieved the greatest level of innovation in exporting initiatives out of the shortlisted entries which included other major UK exporters.
In welcoming CPR Global to the stage, the judges commented:
“We were unanimous in our choice of winner, agreeing that exporting was in their DNA. They have embraced market-specific and channel specific techniques that had allowed them to punch far above their weight. The vast majority of their fast-growing business came from overseas sales and we wish them every success with their growth plans.”
The past few months have seen CPR, which is one of the fastest growing companies in Wales, win the 2016 Global Business Excellence Awards, while also making the shortlist for the Amazon Growing Business Awards at the end of last year.
CPR’s founder and Chief Executive, Andrew Sandbrook, also recently won the Social Entrepreneur category for the Barclays Entrepreneurs Awards.
Mr Sandbrook said:
“We are absolutely thrilled to win this award. We have a fantastic team and we are proud to be a Welsh company, but from our very beginnings we have always been ambitious to be a global business – and exporting our innovative products to the US and Europe has helped to make ours the world’s best-selling nuisance-blocking technology.
“Receiving accolades like this one gives us a real indication of CPR’s strength in the market-place in providing a useful device designed to help millions of elderly and vulnerable people deal simply and effectively with phone scammers and nuisance callers.”
