John Sharples Managing Director of LPRS has been named as the Business Person of the Year in the West Oxfordshire Business Awards. The category, sponsored by Strategic Mentors, also included nominations of a business communications company and a renewable energy system provider.
Recently visited by David Cameron to see for himself how a small hi-tech manufacturer operates, LPRS are currently enjoying a period of business growth and technology innovation. Considered an excellent example of a “micro-business” LPRS is partnering with local Universities and Government initiatives to maximise their potential for growth.

John Sharples comments; “It was a great surprise and honour to even be nominated for this award, much less win it. It is heartening to see enterprise in the electronics industry recognised and rewarded. Small exporting technology companies don’t often make it on to the radar of the wider world.”

In a surprise visit to the awards David Cameron addressed the nominees and reminded them that the region (West Oxfordshire) has no large employers and relies on ingenious small businesses. He continued that the small businesses present were great role models of business enterprise and encouraged those present to go into schools and talk to young people about what business is all about and encourage the next generation of entrepreneurs.

LPRS manufactures the highly successful easyRadio Advanced (eRA) wireless modules and the full LPRS product range now includes, narrow band long range wireless modules from CDP, the IQRF range of wireless networking components, the IQVC range of visual control panels together with antenna, wireless key fobs and a wide range of sensor products.
