We are excited to announce that two of the leading creators of AAC solutions will be joining forces!

As of 1 October Smartbox will join the Tobii Dynavox family and will soon operate under their brand.

By coming together, we will be able to help more people with disabilities around the world, creating even better products and offering unparalleled support for the community we serve. 

We will build on our successes and make a commitment to our customers that we will continue to listen and learn as we develop our products and services. We believe our customers will immediately benefit from the combination of the Smartbox and Tobii Dynavox product ranges, which will include the software titles Grid, Snap + Core First and devices from both companies.   

You will still see the same faces, speak to the same people and experience the same great support. We will be working together as one team to ensure our customers continue to receive the service we’re proud of.  

Following this news, Smartbox Managing Director Paul Hawes, along with co-founder and wife Alyson, will step down from their roles to enjoy retirement. Their sons Barney and Dougal will join the Tobii Dynavox leadership team, which will continue to be run by Fredrik Ruben.
