Scientifica was presented with its prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise: International Trade 2012 at a ceremony held at its headquarters in Uckfield last Friday (5 October). The Award was given to Mark Johnson, Managing Director of Scientifica, by Peter Field, Lord Lieutenant for East Sussex.
The event was also attended by local MP, Charles Hendry, along with Scientifica’s team from its Uckfield and Maidenhead offices and specially invited guests. These included Councillors Chris Dowling, Jonica Fox and John Carvey, Mayor of Uckfield, and David Marshall, Chairman of The Uckfield Chamber of Commerce.
The Queen’s Award for Enterprise recognises the contribution that export has made to Scientifica’s growth over recent years. Today, 70% of the company’s business is achieved through overseas sales. Scientifica, which specialises in the manufacture and distribution of innovative, marketing-leading equipment for electrophysiology researchers, now sells into more than 30 countries and has 12 international distributors.
