Morningside Pharmaceuticals were delighted to win the Export category at the Insider Media Made in the Midlands Awards 2022, hosted by BBC Sports Presenter and Strictly Come Dancing Star, Mike Bushell.
The glittering awards ceremony was hosted at the Macdonald Burlington Hotel, in Birmingham, and attended by scores of highly successful, innovative and rapidly growing manufacturing companies from the East and West Midlands.
Speaking about why Morningside was chosen as the winner in the Export category, the judges said: “The business has pivoted from one which manufactured other companies’ drugs to one which develops, makes and distributes generic medicines. This has led to major international growth.”
The Export category was a natural fit for Morningside as we were founded on an entrepreneur’s dream in the 1990s as a 100% exporting business, before growing into new markets by embracing Research & Development, Innovation and Continuous Improvement.
Insider Media described the award as being for a manufacturing company based in the Midlands, which the judges felt is the most outstanding exporter in terms of international presence, export growth, and exports as a proportion of sales within the qualifying period.
Speaking at the time about the award win, Morningside’s former Chairman, Dr Nik Kotecha OBE DL, said: “We’re delighted to have won this award, which has been achieved through the hard work and dedication of our people, who work tirelessly to ensure doctors and their patients globally receive the often life-saving medicine they require.
“Morningside is a proud Midlands based manufacturer, distributor and supplier of quality medicines to the UK and international markets. Over the past 30 years, since our inception, we have exported to more than 120 countries.
“The Midlands is the manufacturing heartland of the UK, and we’re truly honoured to be recognised in this way alongside so many of the region’s best and brightest manufacturing businesses.”
