Crawford Healthcare has joined a number of the North’s leading businesses named as Official Partners of the Government’s Northern Powerhouse initiative.

Prime Minister Theresa May has made it a key government mission to back business growth across the Northern Powerhouse, through record investments in transport, backing for science and infrastructure schemes and cultural and sports funding.

The businesses taking part in the Northern Powerhouse partnership programme – which range from infrastructure specialists and PR agencies to banks and universities – will join a new network of leaders who strongly believe in the potential to grow the Northern economy and are committed to delivering this growth. Other businesses named in the first round of partnerships include Barclays, Siemens, Peel Ports and Deloitte.

The Chief Secretary to the Treasury, David Gauke, said: “We are determined to create a Northern Powerhouse and are clear we must work closely with businesses to pool the abundance of talent across the North to make this a reality.

“Today, dozens of bold businesses are sending a clear message by joining us in this quest to make the Northern Powerhouse an even better place to live, work and invest in.”

As the UK’s fastest growing advanced wound care business, Crawford Healthcare is committed to promoting the North’s thriving Life Sciences, manufacturing and export industries to a worldwide audience. Collaborating with Northern research institutions to develop, manufacture and market world-first treatments, Crawford’s resolve is to further cultivate and promote the region’s standing as a leader in science and medicine.

Crawford CEO Richard Anderson commented: “Central to this commitment is our ability to provide opportunities for highly skilled research graduates, as well as dynamic individuals capable of building a world-class international business. The North has always been an exceptional home for Crawford and we look forward to supporting and welcoming like-minded businesses to the region.”
