Chemical NORTH WEST Awards, 2023

We are delighted to announce that Hibiscus Plc are Shortlisted Finalists for two categories in the Chemicals Northwest 2023 Awards: Supplier to the Chemical Industry, and the Partnership award, sponsored by the Chemicals Industry Association.

For the Partnership award, Hibiscus has a joint entry alongside Catriona Dunn from Leeds Teaching Hospital Trust, in which we helped to develop and construct a label specifically for slides containing cancerous growth samples that would enable the slides to be processed locally and stored digitally, increasing the speed and accuracy of any proposed treatment paths.

The awards will culminate with a first-class gala dinner celebration and announcement of winners at the Hilton Manchester Deansgate on the 23rd of March 2023. 

The Awards honour excellence across a wide spectrum of business activity, from Innovation to Sustainability and from Young Talent to Supplier to the Chemical Industry.

Chemical business association 100th annual lunch, 2023

26th April 2023, Grosvenor House, park lane, london

When the ‘British Chemical and Dyestuffs Trading Association’ was founded almost a century ago, little did its founder members know that 100 years later as the Chemical Business Association (CBA), it would be the leading organisation within the UK chemical supply chain. 

The CBA has grown to be the voice of the UK chemical supply chain where it has provided unswerving dedication and consistent support throughout the years. It represents distributors, manufacturers, traders, warehouse operators, logistics and transport companies in the chemical supply chain, many of whom are SMEs and who are the main industry interface providing products and services to thousands of UK downstream chemical users.

One of the chief roles of the CBA is to lobby on behalf of members. This is something it does at the highest levels and over the years, industry has benefitted significantly from the CBA’s interventions. 

In addition, its lobbying about concerns of the practicality, workability, and requirement for duplication of testing and costs to implement UK REACH achieved a major breakthrough when DEFRA announced it would consult on extending the deadlines for submission of data, and that it would explore a new data model that would be workable as well as affordable.

While the CBA may have reached 100 not out, it’s obvious this national treasure still has a lot more batting to do.

The Chemical Business Association begins its 100 Year celebrations at the Annual Lunch (Floggers) on the 26th April 2023, and Hibiscus is proud to be attending this milestone event.
