Andy Leaver, ICL Tech’s head of product development, said: “We’re excited and honoured to be recognised by the ‘Made in Scotland’ awards.

“ICL Tech’s awards entry tells the story of our response to the change in our circumstances brought about by the pandemic.

"We were fortunate enough to quickly pivot our business to design and make volume quantities of essential PPE at-cost to support the NHS.

"Our team’s energy and determination to innovate and collaborate led to the creation of our TechPPE™ product range.

“A common purpose, new products and markets, and a loyal customer base combined to make the last year a dynamic growth period for ICL Tech.

"As we seek to scale up in key markets, our focus is on developing sustainable polymer industry solutions through customer collaborations.”

In November, ICL Tech won ‘Covid-19 outstanding response’ at the Scottish Excellence in Public Procurement GO Awards.
