Tissuemed has made it into year’s shortlist for the PD Ports Northern Powerhouse Export Awards 2018. Tissuemed has been nominated in two categories, including the High Growth Exporter Award, in recognition of its great export success.
Over the last 12 months, Tissuemed has received a number of awards following Chinese regulatory approval for the TissuePatch surgical sealant film family of products.
David Mandley, CEO commented, ‘We were thrilled to be shortlisted for two export awards. It was a real honour for the whole team to be recognised by the Northern Powerhouse for our export success over the last 12 months. It’s been a year of significant progress for our business in China.’
HSBC’s head of trade for the North, Nick Missin, , said: “The diversity, tenacity and enthusiasm of the businesses which have entered says everything about the North’s approach to the opportunities which are out there – the world wants our goods, services, skills and expertise. HSBC is a gateway to the world and we are committed to helping businesses and communities to thrive.”
The winners will be revealed at a black-tie dinner on 22 February 2018 at the Marriott hotel, Leeds.
