Praise for Waste Sys­tems founder Ward as fu­neral of Ty­rone busi­ness­man takes place

Belfast Telegraph - Business Telegraph - - News - BY STAFF RE­PORTER

THE late founder of Co Ty­rone firm Waste Sys­tems has been re­mem­bered as a man who “al­ways thought big” by one of its main fun­ders.

Nishi Ward (45) was laid to rest yes­ter­day fol­low­ing an accident on his fam­ily farm last week.

He was the founder of Waste Sys­tems in Plum­bridge, a com­pany with multi-mil­lion pound sales and a work­force of around 20 em­ploy­ees.

Ker­nel Cap­i­tal, which has an of­fice in Belfast, an­nounced £1m in fund­ing to Waste Sys­tems last year.

The com­pany de­vel­oped ma­chin­ery to sep­a­rate waste ma­te­ri­als, and achieved ex­port sales around North Amer­ica and Europe.

Ker­nel Cap­i­tal’s manag­ing part­ner Niall Olden said: “Nishi, who al­ways thought big, was a man of high en­ergy and a hard worker who was widely re­spected. He was com­mit­ted to his fam­ily, his com­pany and his com­mu­nity which he demon­strated to all whom he met and in all of what he did.

“On be­half of all part­ners at Ker­nel Cap­i­tal we of­fer to his wife and fam­ily, his many friends and his col­leagues, our sin­cer­est sym­pa­thies.”

In­vest NI chief ex­ec­u­tive Alas­tair Hamil­ton last week praised Mr Ward for his con­tri­bu­tion to man­u­fac­tur­ing in NI.

“As well as re­ceiv­ing help from In­vest NI, he also gave up his time and par­tic­i­pated in our mar­ket­ing cam­paigns, help­ing us to pro­mote the im­por­tance of ex­port­ing and in­no­va­tion to busi­nesses across NI,” he said.
