Incinerator firm wins Liverpool export award
A Southport incinerator firm has received a business award for its success in export and growth. Inciner8 fought off strong competition to win a Liverpool & Sefton Chambers of Commerce award in recognition of its international expansion and work tackling Ebola in Africa.
Over the last year Inciner8 has been working with the United Nations to provide safe medical-grade incineration facilities to prevent the spread of the contagious and deadly Ebola virus, which can be passed on even once a victim has died.
Inciner8 has donated over $200,000 worth of technology and machinery to facilitate the safe cremation of victims of Ebola. In conjunction with the UN and the Red Cross the company has also provided a 24hr response service to ensure equipment was delivered when required and offered training to locals to ensure donated incinerators could continue to be used beyond the crisis.
The Chamber award joins a series of plaudits Inciner8 has received for its work over the last year. These plaudits include everything from the Queen's Award for Enterprise to the EEF Manufacturing 'Outstanding Export Award'.
Inciner8 received the award during the Liverpool & Sefton Chambers' Annual Dinner, sponsored by HSBC Commercial Banking, which welcomed nearly 600 guests at the Liverpool Anglican Cathedral.
"The last few years have truly been incredible, we've growth from a start-up enterprise in 2003 to an international company, working with the world's leading organisations and supplying incinerators to over 150 countries across the globe," said Paul Niklas, managing director of Inciner8, at the ceremony.
"We are delighted to be presented with the export award which is in recognition of all the hard work and motivation shown by each and every member of Inciner8 to grow the business to what is has become."
Andy Snell, director of international trade at the Chambers says: "The Reach award was designed to champion the success of a business that has capitalised on the opportunity to trade overseas. Through its innovation, creativity and determination to succeed, Inciner8 has positioned itself as a key international competitor, with a great future ahead. It is a source of great encouragement knowing that the local economy is being driven by such hard-working and talented professionals."
