Thursday night brought very happy news for Cambush, one Ross on Wye based family business, who achieved a resounding win for their very first award at this year’s Herefordshire Business Awards.
The category was a tough one with Cambush up against the stunning (already award-winning) hand-crafted spirits from the team at Penrhos Spirits in Kington as well as Synalogik Innovative Solutions, another Herefordshire business that uses automation and data to aggregate multiple datasets helping to prevent serious fraud.
Cambush are a maker of high quality, compact camera traps that are nothing like any other in the marketplace. Traditionally camera traps (or trail cameras as they’re also known) have always been either inexpensive and low-quality or huge bulky contraptions that costthousands of pounds to manufacture and assemble and are heavy to move.
With a significant gap in the industry for something that was easily transportable, simple to rig and use, didn’t cost the earth, and produced broadcast quality footage,the team at Cambush has spent years designing, developing and refining their own camera trap and theCambush Cube was invented. It has now been awarded it’s very first award in its home county of Herefordshire, a fitting tribute.
The brainchild of Nick Guy, a professional cameraman who has worked on numerous global TV, documentary & film productions including Planet Earth II, Living Earth and Earth by Colour at Night. The Cube is manufactured here in Herefordshire by another family business, Studio 29/31. Cambush is owned and managed by Nick and his wife Emily who live just outside Ross on Wye.
Nick said of the evening of celebrations, “Taking an idea and turning it into a reality is an amazing thing. We are seriously delighted to have received this award and very proud of the recognition for our team here in Herefordshire.”
