November 2011 -- STERILE filling specialist SCM Pharma has fought off stiff competition to be named as the winner of the Outstanding Growth Award at the prestigious Cels Business for Life Awards 2011.
The development and contract manufacturing organisation (CDMO) secured the award at a prestigious awards evening in North East England after almost doubling in size over the last 12 months.
Its impressive expansion has led to a huge surge in staff numbers and also the acquisition of a new facility at the University of Sunderland’s Science Complex as part of the company’s launch of its in-house formulation development service.
This achievement follows the company’s success last year at the same even where it won the Export Award, a category that SCM Pharma was also named as a finalist once again this year.
Dianne Sharp, managing director at SCM Pharma, said: "We are absolutely delighted to have won the Cels award for Outstanding Growth especially given the tough competition we were up against.
"This achievement reflects the hard work, dedication and drive of every person in our business. As you'd expect from SCM Pharma, we will not be resting on our laurels and are already looking at building on this solid foundation."
