SiliCycle wins two awards at Medlys 2018 Gala in Montreal, an event organized by Pharmed Canada and Medec that distinguishes excellence in Quebec's life sciences, health & pharmaceutical companies.

Québec City, September 18, 2018 - During the Medlys gala evening, SiliCycle won twice in the two categories in which it was a finalist, namely « Pharmaceutical Suppliers and Services » and « Innovation and Academic Partnership ».

The SiliCycle team is very proud of these awards which is the outcome of all the last years' work and that contributes to strengthen our desire to always improve the quality of our products and services. That's why the company is investing $ 16 million to expand its facilities, adding 22,000 square feet to the existing space. This expansion will allow SiliCycle to increase its production capacity by 22 times, to add laboratory spaces to offer more pharmaceutical services and to develop new ingredients such as CBD / THC molecules, polyphenols, omega-3s, and a whole line of purified extract-ingredients.

« It is with pride that we receive the Medlys Awards in these two categories, that align perfectly with the vision and mission of SiliCycle. We help pharmaceutical companies discover and produce medicines through our products and services, and we are continually looking for expertise and partners to achieve our goal of becoming Canada's largest player in Extraction & Purification of molecules of interest extraced from biomass. » said Mr. St-Laurent.

We would like to congratulate the other finalists in these two categories (Ananda Devices, Graybox Solutions Inc., Roche Diagnostics, Neopharm Laboratories, SOLABS & Novatek International) and thank the organizers of this event.
