2018 – A YEAR OF CHANGE FOR MAMBO-TOX

February 10, 2019



In the early stages of the year, Mambo-Tox was acquired by Cawood Scientific Ltd. Mambo-Tox is a great fit, now sitting alongside Cawood’s existing arms: Sciantec Analytical Services in Yorkshire – whose services encompass all aspects of animal nutrition; NRM Laboratories in Berkshire and Norfolk – which provides agricultural, horticultural and environmental services within the land-based industries; Sci-Tech Laboratories in Shropshire and Dungannon, N.Ireland – a specialist veterinary diagnostic facility and enitial in Wolverhampton, an environmental monitoring and sampling company. Together these provide a complete analytical solution for businesses engaged in agricultural crop production, animal nutrition, horticultural, amenity, environmental and related industries.

It is with mixed emotions that Cawood Scientific announces the retirement of Mike Mead-Briggs in December 2018. Mike worked as Managing Director of Mambo-Tox since his graduation in 1984 and has played an integral part in both the company and its growth and success. Mike will be sorely missed at Mambo-Tox and we wish him all the best for his retirement.

Taking the reins to ensure the continued high level of service you have come to expect from Mambo-Tox is Stephen Vinall. Stephen brings with him almost 30 years of experience, having worked for AEU/Mambo Tox since 1991, shortly after graduating in Applied Biology. Over the years, Stephen has gained a considerable wealth of industry experience particularly in the design of bioassays for a wide range of pest and non-target anthropod species. Managing Director of Cawood Scientific, Nigel Patrick adds ‘Stephen will be a great asset in assisting Mambo Tox to continue to deliver our personalised service offerings and continue to grow the business. We are very excited for the future of Mambo-Tox as part of the Cawood Scientific family’.

Although it has been a year of change for us at Mambo-Tox, we can assure you that you will continue to receive a first class service and we look forward to continuing to work with you in the future.
