An independent family business founded in 1974 in Teddington, the business has provided independent, contract analytical services to the global pharmaceutical and related industries, ensuring the quality and safety of medicines, their ingredients and medical devices. With around 60 employees, the management team is committed to achieving the company’s goals whilst maintaining the strong values that have underpinned their success throughout the last 40 years.
Its formidable business and export achievements have been recognised by local MP Zac Goldsmith and former Secretary of State Vince Cable. This is a remarkable business story that spans several decades, started by Mrs Butterworth who made a pioneering decision to start her own business in a technical industry when women leaders were a very rare breed, and who has subsequently steered the company through four decades of growth to be an international player with a diverse workforce.
