B Braun Medical, a healthcare company located in Sheffield, has reported a strong turnover and record-high sales figures in spite of uncertainty brought on by Brexit in the UK market.
It reported that sales grew from £186 million in 2017 to £194 million in the year ending December 2018.
Located in Thorncliffe Park in Chapeltown, the company also stated that its number of employees rose to more than 1,400 – a figure that is expected to grow in the future.
Group chief executive and chairman of B Braun, Hans Hux, said: “We’re very proud of our work over the past 12 months. Our sales figures continue to increase, despite the additional costs and uncertainty Brexit is creating for businesses operating in the UK.
“We continue to invest in our staff and we have also created new employment nationally. We wouldn’t be where we are today without our strong, hard-working team and I’d like to thank everyone for their effort over the last year.
“2019 has already got off to a great start and I’m excited to say we’ll soon be unveiling our newly expanded, state-of-the-art Compounding Aseptic Production Service (CAPS) unit in Sheffield, too.”
This news comes in conjunction with B Braun Medical’s decision to collaborate with Schreiner MediPharm to bring the label-integrated Needle-Trap system to the US.
