9 September, 2020 – Kallik, a leading labelling and artwork management solution provider for regulated markets, has today announced it has joined the life sciences organisation Medilink West Midlands, an industry association dedicated to supporting growth of this key market sector throughout the region. The new agreement expands the existing Kallik patronage of Medilink East Midlands to the whole of the Midlands, and will provide close ties with members of over 1,700 life sciences organisations who need to deal with rising levels of document regulation to comply with health and safety requirements in increasingly regulated post-COVID times.

Medilink is a well-established industry association of over 18 years, bringing together a network of over 4,000 contacts in over 1,000 life sciences businesses, academic departments and public sector organisations. As the developer of the industry's leading end-to-end label management platform, Kallik can provide other members with extensive collaboration experience in labelling and compliance in this highly complex area, at a time of rapid growth and transformation.

“Medilink patronage is offered to prominent organisations making a valuable contribution to life sciences, including those keen to use their expertise to drive the sector forward,” says Richard Stone, CEO of Medilink West Midlands. “As a leading life sciences company based in the region, Kallik is a valuable addition to the Medilink West Midlands family.”

“This new agreement represents a deepening of our relationship with the Medilink membership base in the Midlands,” says Beth Peckover, Vice President, Global Delivery at Kallik. “Access to this ecosystem provides us with excellent opportunities to establish ties with other leading organisations as we look to add value to and enhance compliance of life sciences organisations in the Midlands and beyond.”

Medilink provides a valuable outlet for networking opportunities, knowledge sharing and collaboration through industry awards and events, webinars, news dissemination and thought leadership publication. Medilink also provides access to the West Midlands Academic Health Science Network (WMAHSN) Industry Innovation Gateway, a dedicated network for establishing partnerships geared towards tackling major life sciences challenges.
