Heathrow’s CEO pays a visit to Micropore

Following its award as a Global Britain Business Champion, Micropore hosted a personal visit by Heathrow’s CEO John Holland-Kaye and his team, who this week toured its head office facilities and laboratories at the Wilton Centre on Teesside.

The Heathrow delegation were able to meet the young team responsible for the development of Micropore’s award-winning AXF-mini device which has the potential to revolutionise the production of lipid nanoparticles, the key component of the mRNA vaccines being used to control the spread of COVID-19 virus.

“It was great to show John and his team around our lab and to have the opportunity of explaining our pioneering technology face-to-face” says Dai Hayward, Micropore’s CEO

Travel via Heathrow Airport plays a vital role in keeping Micropore connected to its global network of vaccine producing customers and so, whilst Heathrow was recognising Micropore’s success on the world stage, this visit also provided the opportunity for the Micropore team to thank Heathrow for the vital role it is playing in enabling Micropore’s pioneering work in the field of frontline pharmaceuticals.

I was delighted to be able to visit a Heathrow Global Britain Business Champion, who has demonstrated the very best of British innovation. As the UK’s largest port, we recognise the critical role Heathrow plays in supporting both domestic and international connectivity, and we are proud to provide the key trading links Micropore depend upon to export their goods to over 30 countries.
