Established in 1976, Bedfont® is a second generation family company that specialises in the design and manufacture of breath and gas analysis equipment, with its wide range of products now found in over 70 countries worldwide.

Andy Smith, sales manager, explains:

Bedfont® operates through a network of distributors, of which the first ever distributor was appointed in 1988 by our father Trevor Smith. In fact, that relationship continues still today between myself and the distributor’s daughter. It is more than a business arrangement; we see our distributors as an extension of the Bedfont® family and it this great relationship that enables us to continue expanding our reach globally.

Jason Smith, managing director, adds:

We are very proud and grateful to accept the accolade Exporter of the year 2017 from the KICC. I’d like to dedicate this award to the Bedfont® family, who is not only my biological family, but the hardworking staff at Bedfont® and our distributors, without whom we would not be here today.
