In 1994, Horncastle based business DP

Industries won a DTI Smart Award and, as a result, scooped £60,000.

This was the second year in a row this local company had won the award.

The company received the Small Firms 
Merit Award for Research and Technology, for its project to design, trial and produce a new concept harvester for peas.
