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.
