We are very proud of our senior engineer Owen Beckwith, who recently received a safety award from Sanofi; a major European Pharmaceutical Manufacturer and a long-term client of ours. The annual award is a reflection of the seriousness placed on health and safety by Sanofi. All contractors are expected to adhere to the strictest safety standards – with the award going to contractors who demonstrate excellence above and beyond the expected level.
Every year a dinner and presentation ceremony is held by Sanofi at their facility at Haverhill, Suffolk. In the image above, Owen can be seen accepting his award from Jim Moretta, the Sanofi General Manager at Haverhill.
Sanofi are a world leader in pharmaceutical research and development, employing over 40,000 staff at 81 sites in 36 countries. Every year they produce nearly 4.5 billion individual packages of pharmaceutical drugs. With a research budget in excess of €6 billion, Sanofi’s medical products are used to treat a host of deadly illnesses including childhood cancers, heart disease and Multiple Sclerosis (MS). They are also responsible for developing vaccines for use around the world. With such a broad based profile and important line of work, Sanofi take a belt and braces approach to quality and safety. This simply is no margin for error when it comes to process water standards, for instance.
