Bedfont® Scientific Ltd, the second generation family company that specialises in the design and manufacture of breath and gas analysis equipment, has won exporter of the year 2017 at the KICC Awards.
The exporter of the year trophy
On Thursday 30th March 2017, the Kent Invicta Chamber of Commerce hosted its prestigious awards evening at the Canterbury Cathedral Lodge, where the Harrietsham-based company received its trophy.
Andy Smith, Sales Manager, explains, “Bedfont operates through a network of distributors, of which the first ever distributor was appointed in 1988 by our father Trevor Smith. In fact, that relationship continues still today between myself and the distributor’s daughter. It is more than a business arrangement; we see our distributors as an extension of the Bedfont family and it this great relationship that enables us to continue expanding our reach globally.”
Jason Smith, Managing Director, adds, “We are very proud and grateful to accept the accolade exporter of the year 2017 from the KICC. I’d like to dedicate this award to the Bedfont family, who is not only my biological family, but the hardworking staff at Bedfont and our distributors, without whom we would not be here today.”
