December 2016 –  Phonak, the leading global provider of hearing instruments and wireless communication solutions, has scooped four top industry awards at the 2016 AIHHP (Association of Independent Hearing Healthcare Professionals) Golden Lobe Awards ceremony at the Belfry, Nottingham, UK

Phonak won the Best Supplier Award for a second year as well as taking home the gong for Best Customer Service. They also picked up two awards in the product categories, which included Best Mid-Range Product for the Venture V70 and the Best Entry Point Product for the Venture V50.

Stuart Neilson, Managing Director, Phonak UK, said “It was an evening to be proud of. AIHPP represent many of the very best independent audiologists in the UK so receiving these awards and nominations hopefully demonstrates how the collective efforts of the team are really making a difference to our customers.” 

Stuart added, “We also had eight individuals nominated for the award of outstanding individual contribution to the AIHPP Association. What’s more, those individuals represent Phonak across the wider business including sales, marketing, professional services, product support and customer services; to be recognised for our achievements in so many areas is a real tribute to the outstanding talent, teamwork and customer focused approach we strive to adopt.”

“We would like to thank the entire AIHPP membership for voting for us and for giving us the opportunity to work alongside such a talented group of businesses and audiologists as we collectively strive to change lives and uphold the highest standards” said Stuart.

The ceremony was attended by over 80 of the associations’ members from across the UK. Delegates also attended the daytime conference where Phonak continued the launch of its latest ground-breaking platform, Belong.

Featuring the world’s first 24 hour* rechargeable hearing aid which uses lithium-ion technology, Audeo B-R has taken the market by storm, with UK and global demand indicating a clear appetite for solutions which combine improved hearing capabilities with greater lifestyle benefits.
