Medical device manufacturer Bedfont Scientific has been recognised as Technology Business of the Year at the Kent Excellence in Business Awards (KEiBA) 2018.
The second-generation family business received the accolade earlier this month. Now in its 10th year, the awards ceremony recognises the achievements of businesses in Kent, with this ceremony being the biggest to date at a record-breaking 320 plus number of entries this year.
Pete Kenyon, Partner at Cripps and Judge for the Technology Business of the Year category, said, “Bedfont impressed the judges on a number of levels. They have taken their knowledge of breath analysis and adapted their products to meet new needs in other medical fields as well as innovating their products throughout the years to meet new demands and markets and to remain current with the ever-changing technology landscape.”
“It is great to see a business in Kent so successfully penetrating global markets and I have no doubt their success story will have many new chapters to follow.
Jason Smith, Managing Director at Bedfont, commented, “Winning Technology Business of the Year is truly a proud moment for the Bedfont Family. This year, we’ll have been in business for 42 years, and we’ve come such a long way and worked so hard to get breath analysis recognised.
“According to the UK Business Survey, there are 10,930 businesses in Kent within the professional, scientific and technical sector; so to be recognised as still among those at the forefront of medical technology and innovation today is phenomenal.”
