INDUSTRY leaders in the design of child restraint products, JMDA Design has marked its 25th anniversary with a top industry award.

The company in Hill Furze Road, Bishampton, has received a Red Dot award this year for Design Concept. It has also sent several of its staff on special courses through its new staff development programme.

It is essential we invest time and money in our staff and equip them with the skills and expertise to help us build on the accomplishments of 2016."
