Collins’ award honors Eminence company
The Martha Layne Collins International Trade Excellence Awards honored Eminence Speaker this year as a creative international distributor committed to international trade and a valuable contributor to its local economy.
Eminence Speaker employs 130 workers at its Eminence location, which was started 46 years ago by Bob Gault. Eminence Speaker’s original site employed 30 people in a building. Gault moved his business to the area as it was a convenient location for shipping and in close proximity to Louisville, Lexington and Cincinnati.
Gault worked as an engineer for Magnavox and Chicago Telephone Supply. The company moved into a larger facility in Shawnee Industrial Park in 1977. Eminence Speaker President Chris Rose considers the success of the company synonymous with the city and its people.
