Sanofi Life Sciences AwardSanofi Waterford has been named as Life Sciences Exporter of the Year at the Export Industry Awards 2017 hosted by the Irish Exporters Association in Dublin on Friday (17th November).

The awards ceremony was attended by Mary Mitchell-O’Connor TD, Minister of State for Higher Education along with several ambassadors and Irish and multinational business leaders.

Welcoming the award, Ruth Beadle, Site Head, Sanofi Waterford, said: “It’s always nice to be recognised for what our team of 700 people do in Waterford every day.

“We are fortunate to work in an environment where we have the opportunity to serve patients right around the world and to contribute to the Irish economy through direct and indirect employment as well as in export revenues. We appreciate this award – particularly following so soon after our being named as Biotech Company of the Year and overall Pharma Industry Company of the Year at the Pharma Industry Awards in October.”
