Brief History of Wickham Laboratories
Wickham Laboratories was established by Mr. William Cartmell in 1962, and a year later was incorporated as a separate entity to the original veterinary diagnostic services facility.
Throughout our history, we have striven to innovate and adapt our services to best meet our clients’ requirements. Over time, we have worked in a variety of testing fields, including food safety testing and chemical analysis but eventually narrowed our focus to microbiology and toxicology testing of pharmaceuticals and medical devices.
Some of our recent key achievements include:
- (2012) Relocation and expansion to Gosport facilities
- (2013) Celebrated 50th anniversary milestone
- (2014) Signatory to Concordat on Openness
- (2014) Expansion of sterility testing facilities
- (2015) Appointment of new CEO
Today, we have around 100 employees, making a significant contribution to the surrounding economy. Our priority is to build on the foundations laid down some fifty plus years ago to improve our services and capabilities, all while continuing to provide excellent quality contract testing services to current and future clients.
