Kedel Limited, founded by three Bolton brothers in 2010, won in the ‘Best Recycled Product’ category at the National Recycling Awards 2015 and was praised by the expert judging panel both for the versatility of their Polystyrene Wood product as well as the wide range uses they have found for it.
“Using our award winning plastic wood we have manufactured maintenance-free long life products like multi-coloured fencing, picnic tables and play equipment for schools as well as cladding, decking, tongue and groove and other profiles for the construction industry, keeping many tonnes of waste plastic out of landfill and incinerators.
“We were thrilled to receive this reward recognising the sustained hard work, creativity and ingenuity of our staff over the last 5 years, and to be continuing the innovation of the industrial revolution born in Lancashire with a recycling revolution,” said Dermot Walch, Kedel’s Managing Director.
The results of the National Recycling Awards 2015 were revealed on 1st July at the prestigious London Hilton, Park Lane, where the key players in the industry came together for a night of recognition and celebration of the sector’s achievements.
“We were looking for gems in the recycled product category that showed innovation, versatility and creative application. Kedel’s Plastic Wood excelled in all these areas, and this award is a well-deserved accolade to their ingenuity and inventiveness.
“In particular we appreciated the fact that Kedel not only manufacture the plastic wood from crushed CD cases, but also combine it with other recycled plastic materials to make a range of products that appeal to many market sectors from retail and education to the construction industry,” explained Dr Jane Beasley, one of the judges of the ‘Best Recycled Product’ award category.
With 16 targeted categories, the awards cover every aspect of waste management and recycling from Best Recycled Product to Efficiency Initiative of the Year.
The National Recycling Awards 2015 recognise and highlight the excellence and innovation present throughout the recycling and resource management sector today. These are the awards companies aspire to win, judged by their peers from across the industry.
Stand-up comedian and former co-host of the Xtra Factor Matt Richardson was the host for the evening and shared his energy and charm with all who attended.
