Cherwell sees increase in overseas sales

Published: 12-Jun-2018

The manufacturer has announced a 21% increase in Redipor sales to its distributors during the 2017/18 financial year

Cherwell Laboratories, manufacturer of Redipor prepared microbiological media, has announced a 21% increase in Redipor sales to its distributors during the 2017/18 financial year. 

According to the company, Cherwell’s continuing growth in export sales, largely across Europe, can be attributed to renewed strategic focus on overseas markets and the appointment of further distributors for the Redipor range. 

Cherwell’s Redipor range is mainly focused on environmental monitoring (EM), sterility testing and operator and process validations in pharmaceutical and related industries.

The media range includes petri dishes and contact plates, bottled media, broth bags and ampoules. As such, the main products supplied are based on Tryptone Soya Agar for general EM work, neutralising agars for surface testing and Tryptic Soy Broth for sterility testing or process validations.

Already supported in Denmark, Italy, Northern Ireland, Poland and Slovenia; in the last three years, Cherwell has signed further distributor agreements with BioIng in the Czech Republic and Slovakia; Chemium in Hungary and ATS Korea in South Korea. Cherwell looks for partners that demonstrate a good knowledge of the needs of the pharmaceutical and related industries, and who also understand microbiology.

Cherwell also announced it has signed its latest distributor agreement with Alphachim in Bulgaria.

Alphachim is a specialist distributor of laboratory equipment throughout Bulgaria. Operating out of Sofia, it supplies laboratory chemicals, glassware, consumables, equipment, such as water baths and balances, protective equipment and now Redipor prepared media.

The new distributor’s warehouse stocks more than 3000 items, allowing for fast delivery of many products. Alphachim is committed to supplying the highest standard of product, with the best possible service, through an experienced and knowledgeable team.

Andy Whittard, MD at Cherwell Laboratories, commented: “We have been working with Alphachim during 2017 on an informal basis and during this time they have demonstrated a desire to grow their business. They have also already sold Redipor products into one of Bulgaria’s main pharma companies, demonstrating they understand and have access into our key market. We look forward to continuing to build a successful relationship with the Alphachim team.”

Enabling the successful outsourcing of prepared media supply, all Redipor products are subjected to a full array of QC tests, including comprehensive growth tests, with detailed QC certification supplied for every batch.

Its flexible production methods and managed stock levels allow Cherwell to deliver cost-effective, in-time solutions for both large and small customers alike.
