Sigma Pharmaceuticals has picked up the 2017 Pharmaceutical Industry Network Group (PING) Innovation Award, which recognises and supports innovation and excellence in the pharmaceutical and life sciences supply chain.

The family-owned wholesaler was chosen as the winner by an independent panel in recognition of the level of innovation demonstrated in the design and assembly of the new picking/packing warehouse development in Watford, which is due to go operational in September.

Managing director Bharat Shah said: “We’re very proud to be the recipients of this prestigious award from PING that recognises excellence and innovation. As a wholesaler to the independent sector, we take service delivery and compliance issues very seriously, hence the substantial investment into FMD integration in our new plant.”
