A new Managing Director to continue the family approach for Bedfont®

At Bedfont’s 40th year in business celebrations, Jason Smith was announced as Managing Director, succeeding his father, Trevor, who becomes Chairman.

Bedfont Scientific Ltd, based in Harrietsham, gathered together its customers, distributors and partners in celebration of 40 years trading, where Trevor Smith announced that Bedfont was becoming a 2nd generation family company by appointing his son, Jason Smith, as the new Managing Director, with Trevor moving on to the position of Chairman.

Trevor Smith joined Bedfont as the Marketing Director in 1985. It is from there that Trevor grew and became managing director of Bedfont Scientific, shaping it to be the pioneer in medical breath analysis that it is today.

Trevor Smith, Chairman of Bedfont, says, “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, new Managing Director of Bedfont, adds, “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. 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. This goes not only for our employees, but also our distributors and suppliers; it’s about the Bedfont family, not just the Smith family, and I’m proud to work with them all.”
