“MircoPharm’s main role is to supply snake anti-venom for use by the rural community of West Africa. In so doing, it probably saves more lives than any other Welsh company. Wales is the ideal site for such a venture since the essential component of its anti-venom is the blood supplied on a monthly basis by a flock of contented albeit ageing sheep.
Founded in 1998, MicroPharm’s activities were divided initially between Saint Bartholomew’s Hospital in London and its farm and manufacturing facilities in mid-Wales. At that time the Company utilised the services of a large firm of London accountants. Understandably its dealings were somewhat distant and with relatively junior staff. Since moving its entire operation to Wales several years ago, MicroPharm has employed the services of Clay Shaw Butler and has benefited greatly from the much closer collaboration (and significantly reduced fees!) that has resulted. Senior staff are available always to give advice and meetings can be arranged with minimum of delay. Of especial value, they spend regular periods at MicroPharm’s facilities helping with such matters as preparing VAT returns and management accounts.
MicroPharm holds Clay Shaw Butler in the highest esteem and recommends thoroughly their services to others.”
Professior John Landon & Dr Ruth Coxon – Directors MicroPharm Limited
