Coltraco’s CEO, Carl Stephen Patrick Hunter, has been awarded an Honorary Doctor of Science from Durham University.

The accolade was given for his contribution to the Physics Department at the university, and has inspired the company develop new products and systems which will be coming to market later in the year.

Professor Paula Chadwick, the Ambassador for the University, said, “Time and again I have heard Carl tell students that wherever they decide to go, they should look for a company that values them as human beings and will seek to develop their skills, and that both scientific and personal integrity is the bedrock of successful industry. Carl is running a remarkable company…”
