Abcam picked up the top prize at the 2009 AIM Awards, winning ‘Company of the Year’. The award, described as the 'ultimate accolade' for any company on the AIM market, was announced at the AIM Awards Dinner in London in October 15. It is presented to a company that has demonstrated they are a responsible, fully accountable, dynamic business with excellent potential for growth.
Jonathan Milner, Abcam’s CEO commented: 'The transformation of Abcam over the past 10 years from a fledgling company selling antibodies out of an ice bucket to being voted AIM company of the year is truly amazing and is in no small part due to the passion and dedication of the staff that have been part of the company over the decade'.
