The KICC awards recognises Med-tech company, Bedfont’s innovative success

The long-awaited Kent Invicta Chamber of Commerce (KICC) awards took place on Thursday 18th November, and named medical device manufacturer, Bedfont, as Innovative Business of the Year.

The KICC awards, celebrated every year, brings together businesses across Kent, showcasing their amazing achievements. The awards had unfortunately been delayed due to COVID-19, but finally took place on Thursday at Westhanger Castle, Hythe, boasting an even more impressive evening than ever before.

Local medical technology business, Bedfont, was delighted to have received the accolade for Innovative business of the year. A multi-award winning medical device manufacturer, Bedfont is based in Harrietsham, Kent. Their products help to detect a range of medical conditions via breath analysis, removing the need for needles, blood samples, and long waiting time for results.

Managing Director, Jason Smith, explained, “It’s been a difficult couple of years, being a breath analysis device manufacturer during the Coronavirus pandemic – a disease spread by breath! However, Bedfont did what it does best; innovate. We adapted our products, resources, and services to better support both our employees and customers remotely and the Bedfont Family are over the moon to see that this has been recognised.”
