This firm was founded in 1996, and now operates from a 140,000 sq ft facility in the Wirral, making, packing, and storing products for some of the world’s largest pharmaceutical, healthcare and veterinary companies. In 2014, it sold a majority stake to Geoffrey Elliott, 67, former finance director of drug developer Galen — Northern Ireland’s first billion-pound company. Diversification into ecigarette liquids helped international sales hit £15.1m last year under chief executive John Pugh, 38.
