This company began in 2005 as Bath ASU, a spin-out from Bath University, led by co-founders Richard Wastnage, 52, Christopher Watt, 49, and Maria Watt, 47. It prepares specialist medicines individually tailored to patients’ needs, such as chemotherapy doses. In 2010 the group launched a sister business, Pharmaxo, which provides traditional pharmacy and hi-tech homecare services. It has developed what it says is the single biggest aseptic clean room in the UK, a move that helped to boost the group’s sales to £87.9m last year.
