ClinTec International www.clintec.com is delighted to announce that it has been named as a recipient of the Queen's Award for Enterprise. This accolade, bestowed by Her Majesty The Queen on the advice of the Prime Minister and advisory committees, was announced on the 21st of April 2011, Her Majesty's birthday, and is widely recognised as the most prestigious business accolade for any organisation operating in the UK. A rigorous judging process ensures that the Queen's Awards are indicative of the highest standards of quality and excellence.
ClinTec, a full service contract clinical research organisation and Certified WBE, was granted the award under the category of International Trade in recognition of its substantial growth in overseas revenue and commercial success in the last 3 years, achieving an increase in overseas sales in excess of 250% from 2007-2009. ClinTec has established operations in over 40 countries across 5 continents and is recognised as a specialist in delivering excellence in clinical research within both established and emerging markets. ClinTec was one of the first global contract clinical research organisations to establish a presence in the Middle East and North Africa and has continued to expand into South Africa, India, Latin America and South East Asia. Concurrently, ClinTec has continued to strengthen its position in the more traditional European and North American markets.
