Midlands-based global supplier of healthcare products awarded prestigious Queen’s Award

Renowned global supplier of healthcare products, Unimed Procurement Services has won the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise for International Trade 2022.

The Leicestershire-based company is one of 141 national organisations to be recognised with the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise.

Announced today (Thursday 21 April), Unimed Procurement Services has been recognised for its excellence in International Trade.

The firm was set up in 2018 and focuses on working within the International Development space and currently supplies quality healthcare products to over 25 countries.

Unimed’s goal is simple; to make a difference. And the firm achieves this by working with organisations such as Her Majesty’s Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO), The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the United Nations.

The supplier continues to assist governments and organisations by ensuring that each person receives the right medical product at the right price and for the right purpose, as well as supporting those in need during difficult times, such as the Haiti earthquake and floods in Germany.

Of this success, Shameet Thakkar, Managing Director at Unimed said: “We are honoured to be presented with the most prestigious award for businesses in the UK.

“We have experienced remarkable growth overseas since we established our business, and we continue to become a supplier of choice for many outstanding organisations that have global health and development at the forefront of their work.
