Trevor Smith, who joined the UK-based business as Marketing Director in 1985, will take the position of Chairman within the corporation. He enthused, “It is with great pride and pleasure that I hand the reins over to my son Jason. I couldn’t be more proud of the man that Jason has become and I have absolutely no doubt that he has the brightest future for Bedfont at the heart of his strategies.”

Jason Smith, the new Managing Director of Bedfont, laid out his business plan and added, “My aim for Bedfont is that our family values are shown through our dedication to our customers and our core business of breath analysis; we all share the same goal of providing the best service and products to improve healthcare.”

“I’d like to thank Trevor for trusting me with the company he built, he’s been the best business mentor and friend I could have hoped for.”
