Barkwith Associates celebrate 20th birthday


Regulatory and technical support services business, Barkwith Associates, celebrate their 20th year in business this year. 


Following a career of technical positions in the agricultural, horticultural and retail industries, Barkwith Associates was founded in 2002 by Murray Smedley to provide specialist advice in the areas of Plant Protection, Biocides, Classification & Labelling and Fertilisers & Biostimulants.

Never far from their original location in the village of West Barkwith, Lincolnshire, England, Barkwith Associates is now located in bespoke eco offices on the outskirts of the cathedral city of Lincoln.

From clients looking for their first entry into the UK and Europe to Global players, Barkwith offers experience and knowledge on regulatory compliance, market research & scoping, product development and project planning. 

John Parkes, Director of Business Development at Barkwith Associates, said:

"Our aims remain the same today as our first - to provide a clear, pragmatic approach and solutions to regulatory hurdles.

"Barkwith Associates is really looking forward to meeting clients old and new at PestEx in this our 20th anniversary year.

"Our owner and founder, ‘Murray Brown’ will be at stand 61, so come along and chat to us about biocides, regulations or anything you like really!"
