Robert said: "Oxtex is exactly the sort of high-tech, life-changing business that makes West Oxfordshire the extraordinary place that it is.
"Originally based at Oxford University when first founded in 2011, Oxtex is a medical device company which develops novel devices for soft tissue expansion - so for use in reconstructive surgery, wound closing for veterinary surgery and human medical procedures, helping not just people to recover from soft tissue wounds caused by trauma or surgery - but their pets too.
"Oxtex has an extraordinary range of awards from the business community: the OBN awards for Best Emerging MedTech in late 2011 and best New Medical Product in 2012, the UK Enterprise Awards for Innovation in Tissue Expansion Solutions!
"And the team are right here in Witney - based at the Witney Business & Innovation Centre!
"Winners of the Innovation Award at the 2019 West Oxfordshire Business Awards (WOBAs), Oxtex are going from strength to strength and it was great to catch up with the team today, hear about their latest successes and new plans - and celebrate with them as they open their new lab."
