Q1 Scientific is a finalist for Business of the Year

Q1 Scientific is one of the finalists for the prestigious Business of the Year award at the Waterford Chamber Business Awards 2023.

Now in its tenth year, the Waterford Chamber Business Awards are annual awards that celebrate the achievements and excellence of the Waterford business community. Organisers Waterford Chamber has joined forces again with Dungarvan & West Waterford Chamber with support from Waterford City & County Council and WLR for this years awards.

Expansion and business growth at Q1 Scientific

The last number of years has seen Q1 Scientific go from strength to strength with Q1 Scientific being part of the supply chain process for a large portion of the 20 biggest pharmaceutical companies in the world. With over 50,000 sq ft of cGMP stability storage space across our state-of-the-art facilities in Waterford, Ireland and Liege, Belgium along with expertise in temperature-controlled storage, monitoring and security, Q1 Scientific ensures the integrity and stability of its clients’ products across their lifecycle. Q1 Scientific helps improve the speed of new drugs and medical devices reaching the marketplace along with saving companies the expense of building and monitoring their own storage chambers. With full equipment validation, tightly controlled conditions and continuous sample monitoring, Q1 Scientific is not just a storage provider, it is a trusted partner for stability storage excellence.

In June 2022, Cambrex, a leading global contract development and manufacturing organization (CDMO) providing drug substance, drug product, and analytical services across the entire drug lifecycle, acquired Q1 Scientific. As pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical companies continue to seek outsourcing options for non-core capabilities to reduce their footprint, Q1 Scientific’s stability storage services, combined with Cambrex’s industry-leading analytical services portfolio, provide specialised capabilities of high value to the pharmaceutical industry.

With support from Cambrex, Q1 Scientific accelerated its growth plans and earlier this year opened a second Q1 Scientific facility in Belgium. Simultaneously, Q1 Scientific continued to expand its Waterford facility to meet the demand within the Irish market. Over the past year, Q1 Scientific has added an additional 10,000 sq ft to its facility in Waterford, Ireland. Q1 Scientific’s Waterford-based facility has doubled in size over the past two years and continues to grow.

Speaking of the news, Managing Director at Q1 Scientific Stephen Delaney says,

“After winning the same award in 2021, being shortlisted again is a great achievement and recognition of our team’s continued hard work. Being recognised by the Waterford Chamber of Commerce for our contribution to the Waterford business community and the wider economy is an honour. It’s a great boost to the team at Q1 Scientific who work incredibly hard to ensure we are world leaders in the provision of stability storage. It also reinforces the importance of the work we do each day for our clients.”
