We are very pleased to announce that Don Whitley Scientific won Best Stand at the IBMS Congress 2022. Our theme ‘building the future together’ was a result of assessing our core values as a family company. We are committed to encouraging future generations to pursue careers in STEM which is why our apprentice scheme is so important. We work closely with our young apprentices to give them the support and knowledge they need to progress and wanted to showcase this.
On our stand this year we had one of our apprentices, Callum Milthorpe, building a Whitley A20 Anaerobic Workstation live over the duration of the exhibition. Alongside this, we had a helping hand from some of our customers to build the workstation. We sent out some parts prior to the event so that everyone could be involved.
Joining forces with our friends at Copan, we were able to promote our long-standing collaboration with the Italian company. This relationship has allowed us to share knowledge and resources to build a solid platform for innovation and progression.
Our ‘building the future together’ message also extended through to our prize draw, with a variety of building themed prizes on offer and building block sweets as one of our giveaways. Our three competition winners managed to bag the following: a NASA Apollo Saturn V Lego rocket won by Kerry Pilgrim from Broomfield Hospital, a robotic arm won by Stefan Botha from the London Clinic and a remote-controlled building block car won by Karen MacDonald from Raigmore Hospital.
Innovation has continued to be at the heart of DWS, with design and production undertaken in-house we have a strong sense of family and collaboration between each department. Don Whitley Scientific has always and will always, be aiming to build the future together.
