Synthetic dental bone graft firm EthOss Regeneration Ltd has been honoured with a Queen’s Award for Enterprise 2021 in the international trade category.
The company is one of just 205 organisations nationally to be recognised with a prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise, which celebrates outstanding achievement by UK businesses.
Now in its 55th year, the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are the most prestigious business awards in the country, with winning businesses able to use the esteemed Queen’s Awards emblem for the next five years.
Paul Harrison, managing director of EthOss, said, “We’re incredibly proud to have been recognised with the prestigious Queen’s Award in International Trade.
“Exports now account for 58 per cent of our total turnover. We recently signed partnerships with distributors in France, Turkey, Chile, Kuwait, Latvia and Moldova, with EthOss now being sold in more than 45 countries worldwide.
“The continued hard work of our team has seen us continue to grow year on year, and we’re extremely honoured that this has been celebrated with such a renowned and well-respected award.”
EthOss was set up in 2013 in West Yorkshire, by world-renowned dental surgeon Peter Fairbairn and highly experienced biomaterial product development specialist Paul Harrison.
Together, the pair set out to create a product that would disrupt the dental bone grafting market, with the result being the company’s flagship product – EthOss – a synthetic biomaterial used during dental implant surgery to encourage new bone to grow and support the implant.
Until then, this procedure had been done using a material containing animal product – usually bone harvested from cows, pigs and horses. The company’s aim is to grow a more ethical approach to dental implantology worldwide.
And, despite the pandemic, EthOss has seen continued growth, with turnover and total exports increasing by 22 per cent in 2019/2020.
