Crawford Healthcare has been crowned the UK’s ‘Manufacturer of the Year’ in the Life Sciences sector at the Made in the UK Awards. The awards, organised by Insider Media, recognise the UK’s most innovative and successful manufacturers, with Crawford qualifying having won the North West regional Life Sciences title.

Applauding Crawford’s market-leading R&D department, the judges were particularly impressed by Crawford’s exceptional growth over the past three years as well as its ambition to develop its existing export vehicles.

The win is Crawford’s fourth awards success of 2016, having also received the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise, as well as the Cheshire High Sheriff’s Award for its performance in overseas markets.

Collecting the award at a gala ceremony at the International Festival of Business in Liverpool, Crawford Healthcare’s Financial Director Spencer Kerry said: “To be recognised at a national level for the success of our business is testament to the outstanding performance of the team at Crawford, whether they’re in research, sales, manufacturing or admin.

“Between us, we are building a truly international healthcare business with the capacity to transform patient care globally, whilst promoting everything that’s good about UK manufacturing.”

Crawford Healthcare was also shortlisted at the UK Export Excellence Awards hosted at IFB 2016.
