Hundreds of guests gathered for the MediWales Innovation Awards at Cardiff’s National Museum of Wales, to celebrate the achievements of the Welsh life science sector in 2017. Delivered with support from the Welsh Government’s Healthcare Technology, Strategy and Innovation team and Health & Care Research Wales, the ceremony announced a series of winners who are excelling in their respective industries.
CellPath were the proud recipients of the Export Achievement Award, awarded for maximising opportunities to develop new markets and outstanding performance in other areas of international trade.
The award follows the company’s opening of a new International Distribution Centre in August 2017, aimed at delivering a better service to their overseas customers whilst reducing product lead times.
The Chairman of CellPath. Peter Webber, commented: “It is always great to be recognised in the industry for our achievements, which is a result of all the hard work our staff have put in. The export market has been a key focus for the company over the last few years and with the recent opening of our International Distribution Centre, I am confident the company has very solid foundations for future success”.
