PCI shortlisted for prestigious Welsh award


Bridgend site has been shortlisted for the prestigious LEAD Wales Award 2015 for its contribution to the Welsh economy

The PCI site in Bridgend, formally Biotec Services International, has been shortlisted for the prestigious LEAD Wales Award 2015, for its contribution to the Welsh economy.

The site, which was established in Bridgend in 1997, provides clinical trial services and temperature controlled pharmaceutical services for clients on a global scale, including comparator product sourcing, blinding services, packaging, labelling, assembly of clinical trial kits, temperature controlled storage and distribution, as well as QP and GMP consultancy services.

'”We are delighted to receive this well-deserved recognition for our contribution to the Welsh economy,' said Fiona Withey, PCI’s Managing Director UK Clinical Services. 'We’ve been in Bridgend for 18 years and have experienced significant growth over that time. We have recently undertaken a facilities expansion, quadrupling the company’s capacity to store, package and distribute cold chain pharmaceutical products. This includes a second purpose-built facility for the storage of -40⁰C products, designed to our client’s specification and unique requirements.

'Following PCI’s acquisition of Biotec last year, we are able to deliver a truly holistic global service to our clients across a wider range of services, while staying true to our core values of expertise, customer service, efficiency and flexibility. We are committed to develop innovative solutions to meet the evolving clinical trial supply needs.'

The LEAD Wales project was launched in 2010 and is funded by the European Social Fund and the Welsh Government. The awards evening will be opened by the Welsh Government’s Minister for Economy, Science and Transport, Edwina Hart and Swansea University’s Vice Chancellor, Professor Richard Davies. The evening will showcase highlights of the past five years, while recognising the achievements of LEAD delegates in the following areas:

  • Contribution to the Welsh economy
