2018 ISPE UK Awards

16 January, 2019

ISPE is a volunteer led organisation, so everything that we do for our members is reliant on the time and resources offered by our volunteers and supporters.

These annual awards are a chance for the ISPE’s UK Affiliate to thank and recognise individuals, companies and organisations, nominated by the regional committees, for their support of the ISPE as a whole, and in particular in the UK.


Boulting Environmental Services
Gary Horrocks of BES accepted the award.

Suppliers Significant Contribution Award

Boulting Environmental Services have supported UK events over many years.  They are a regular premium sponsor of our annual event and are now supporting a committee member, Suzy Smith in the Southern region.

Manufacturers Significant Contribution Award

Ipsen Biopharm has long supported the ISPE on both a regional and national level.  They have hosted many site visits and tours around both pilot plants and commercial facilities as well as supporting the NW region with speakers for events, and committee members, namely Jim Durkin, who has been a valued committee member of the ISPE for many years.
