Yee Group Ltd to sponsor Best Customer Service Performance gong at Burton Mail Business Awards

The firm was established in 2010 and it has since transformed into a global provider of specialty pharmaceutical products and services, becoming a public company and listing on the London Stock Exchange on AIM in September 2012. At the heart of the group's continued success is its "can do" culture.

The firm says: "Despite being an international business and operating on a truly global scale, we have never lost touch with our Staffordshire roots and, as a rapidly expanding company, we employ more than 500 people, many of them based in the Burton area.

"As a major employer, we want to play an active role in supporting local business initiatives and being a sponsor of the business awards is an excellent way of us doing this."
