Ray Hodgkinson, Director General of the BHTA, congratulated the team at Comfizz and commented that the award was richly deserved. “The awards we present each year are given only after a rigorous process involving a panel of judges and the winners represent excellence in what is an important and growing marketplace. This is one of the fastest growing and most important market sectors and one in which excellence in product design and customer service really does mean a great deal to the customers, many of whom rely on our member companies to maintain their independence.”
Lorraine & Nozar company owners added: “Being presented with the award, particularly in front of so many members of the industry, was a real achievement and reflects the hard work by everyone throughout the company. The BHTA is a very well known trade association, involved at the heart of the marketplace in which we do business and so to be recognised in this way will help us greatly in the future and will no doubt raise our profile a good deal, both to the professionals who deal with us and the customers who use our products. We are passionate about helping people with a stoma overcome some of their difficulties and are planning to expand the range even further next year to meet the needs of those with a hernia, post surgical wounds and continence issues. It might not be a glamorous field of business but it is extremely rewarding to see the difference our products can make to
