Founders and Directors of JMDA Derrick and Cherril Barker accepted the Queen’s Award in a momentous occasion saying, “In a room filled with family, friends and business associates, together with our UK team and colleagues from China and Italy, who have contributed to the design of 97 children’s car safety seats to date, our vision to reduce serious injury to children from road traffic accidents continues to grow. We feel extremely proud of all that we have achieved; welcoming The Hon Lady Morrison, Vice Lord-Lieutenant of Worcestershire to our offices and being presented the award in front of so many guests was the highest point in our company’s history so far”.
