Voice Technologies supports Paisley’s Bid for UK City of Culture 2021

As an employee-owned company, founded and based in Paisley, Voice Technologies is fully behind the bid to become City of Culture 2021.

The company began business here in 1996 and, 21 years later, it employs 24 staff with 21 based at Shuttle Street, Paisley and doing business all over the UK.

James McPherson, CEO of Voice Technologies explains, “Becoming UK City of Culture would be a fantastic opportunity to re-establish Paisley on the UK and international map. Raising its profile in such a positive way has the potential to bring tremendous economic benefits but, more than that, it will help to change perceptions about our town.

“Re-engergising Paisley will help local business by encouraging people to come here for work. It would also give existing residents in the town, and Renfrewshire as a whole, a boost, and help all of us to see our area’s heritage, architecture and cultural assets in a fresh light – to be proud of its past and positive about its future. You just need to look up in Paisley to see the architecture and history of an amazing town.

“2021 will be Voice Technologies’ 25th anniversary. If Paisley was awarded the UK City of Culture, it would be a double celebration year for everyone here!”
