Zilico awarded at Greater China Awards 2019

Friday 15th February 2019

Zilico are thrilled and honoured to have been awarded in the Rising Star category at the Greater China Awards 2019.

The 3rd place award was presented to the team at the annual awards dinner held at the stunning Lowry Theatre in Manchester which was themed to celebrate the Chinese New Year in this year of the pig.

Greater China Awards are open to any companies or organisations in North West England which have made a significant contribution to developing business or collaborative innovation/partnership with mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau, and/or Taiwan during the last 12 months. This can include bi-lateral trade or investment, education and community sectors. The Rising Star Award is open for any applicants who have been working across UK and China for less than 3 years.

The Zilico entry demonstrated how our approach to penetrating the China market was based on identifying the right partner who understood the clinical pathway in China and could support local registration for ZedScan. Agreeing on the right partnership deal which would be beneficial to both parties and help to realise their global ambitions was vital and a mutual understanding of UK and Chinese cultural and business environments led to a strong strategic deal which will deliver long term benefits to both parties.

The deal agreed with our partner in China, Maxhealth Medicine Group, will allow the company to assemble, market and sell the ZedScan device. This strategic deal allows the partner to have ownership of local production to drive better margin and develop a team to drive sales across Greater China. Allowing our partner to also invest in Zilico helps to align our interests and ensure that both companies achieve joint success.
