A RECYCLING firm with a site in Ellesmere Port is in line for a national accolade.
Recresco is to contend for the national HSBC Business Thinking award in Hong Kong after being crowned as a South West regional winner.
The Nottingham-based firm, which has sites in the town, Southampton and Bristol, was rewarded for its innovation and forward-thinking.
Director Tim Gent said: “We are delighted to receive this award – we are always looking for new ways of improving our products and services as we want to make recycling as easy and as cost effective as possible for everyone.
“Being part of the HSBC Business Thinking initiative has been an extremely valuable experience so far and I am looking forward to meeting other like-minded business thinkers whilst at the International Insights event in China.”
Tim Gent travelled to Turkey with four other South West regional finalists on a Thought Exchange visit earlier this year.
Recresco was asked to present a business case including insights gained on the Thought Exchange.
Recresco will be awarded a prize of up to £100,000 for being regional winners of the South West region.
The overall 2010 winner will be announced in China at the end of the year, receiving a further financial reward of up to £100,000 to support the development of their next business idea.
