AN ORM­SKIRK man who founded and heads an in­ter­na­tional man­u­fac­tur­ing com­pany was awarded a OBE as part of the Queen’s Birth­day Hon­ours List.

Vince Fer­gu­son, chair­man of Inciner8 Ltd, was recog­nised for ser­vices to ex­port and man­u­fac­tur­ing at Buck­ing­ham Palace last week.

His com­pany, which is based in South­port, sells a range of standard and be­spoke in­cin­er­a­tors to busi­nesses around the world.

Inciner8 was awarded two Queen’s Awards for En­ter­prise in In­ter­na­tional Trad­ing and In­no­va­tion in 2016. Its in­ter­na­tion­ally recog­nised range of in­cin­er­a­tors has as­sisted com­pa­nies and or­gan­i­sa­tions in their ef­forts to improve global waste man­age­ment, pro­vid­ing waste to en­ergy so­lu­tions – con­vert­ing the heat pro­duced by burn­ing waste into en­ergy to cre­ate elec­tric­ity or heat­ing as needed.

Mr Fer­gu­son said: “I am ab­so­lutely de­lighted to have been ap­pointed an OBE by Her Majesty The Queen.

“My suc­cess has only been made pos­si­ble by the hard work and ded­i­ca­tion of all the staff at Inciner8 and the love and sup­port of my won­der­ful fam­ily.”

A spokesman for Inciner8 said: “Vince has guided Inciner8 Ltd from a start-up busi­ness in 2004, sell­ing an in­cin­er­a­tor to a poul­try farm, and has grown it into a global multi-mil­lion-pound com­pany with many more de­vel­op­ments on the hori­zon.

“This decade of in­no­va­tion and suc­cess has now been ac­knowl­edged for Vince in this fan­tas­tic hon­our.

“In a time of dif­fi­cul­ties and challenges for Bri­tish Man­u­fac­tur­ers, Inciner8 Ltd are ex­tremely proud to be achiev­ing so highly and are ex­cited about the bright fu­ture ahead.”
