From cupboard under the stairs to one of Europe’s largest CMOs.
When John Pratt built the world’s first glucose blood monitor back in 1985, orders flooded in from his first client, a large healthcare company. Could he build many more – and quickly – they asked? Of course he could. There was just one challenge; John couldn’t secure a manufacturing premises within the client’s deadline.
Not one to let a small detail like that stop the process, John hired staff and had them work on assembly lines in the upstairs bedrooms of his home, while he moved his head office into the only remaining space in the house – the cupboard under the stairs.
