Bedfont proud to announce that they have been shortlisted for the Manufacturing Innovation, Export, and Manufacturer of the Year (turnover under £25m) accolades.

Jason Smith, General Manager at Bedfont Scientific, comments, “Being a small business of only 42 members, Bedfont wouldn’t be where it is today without its dedicated employees; we’re a family. We keep our teams happy and motivated and in return, the extra lengths that our staff members go to make anything possible. For that, we are grateful. The MISE Awards are the first regional awards Bedfont has ever been a finalist for, but to be a finalist in 3 categories is even more exciting and an honour. Winning these awards would show the Bedfont family just how their hard work and dedication pays off, but even getting this far, as a finalist, is an achievement in itself. ”
