Queen’s Award for Enterprise presented to Overview Ltd
On 20th July, The Lord-Lieutenant presented Overview Limited with Queen’s Award for Enterprise for Innovation.
Overview Ltd was formed in 1988 and is based in Woking, Surrey. Their innovation is the development of a range of precision, intelligent, direct drive servo motors. The company began by supplying cameras and positioning equipment for CCTV, security and defence applications. Frustrated at the limitations of existing positioning systems and not being able to find suppliers of positioning motors with the characteristics they required, the company realised there was a market gap and opportunity if they could develop a product to fill it. To find this solution they began working to develop their own capability and skills, collaborating with Newcastle University and receiving support from Innovate UK to progress the technology. The resulting “Servotorq” range of motors integrates the motor, drive electronics, position encoding and software in a single package and delivers a superior product. This innovation has transitioned the company to a technology leader in the design, development and manufacture of integrated servo motors and sensor positioning solutions.
