Can you believe it! We won a BIBA last Friday night which we’re absolutley ecstatic about!
Hailed as the ‘Business Oscars’, the 2009 BIBAs is the most ambitious event of its kind and, this year, attracted 900 entries from some of Lancashire’s top performing companies.
Held at The Winter Gardens, the ‘Oscar’ style ceremony was attended by over 600 people and the first award to be announced was ‘Best Use of E-Business’. We knew we were one of five finalists but to actually here our name called out was phenomenal.
Chief Executive of North and Western Lancashire Chamber of Commerce, Babs Murphy, said:
“All the finalists represented on the night should also be praised because they are shining examples of what can be achieved, particularly in these difficult and challenging times, by people with a real aspiration to improve their business and significantly contribute to the local economy.
Sylvia Hopwood, Managing Director of The Recycle Works commented:
“To say we are thrilled to have won a BIBA is an understatement. The last twelve months have seen huge changes take place within the business and it’s wonderful to know that everything the team has done has been recognised and ultimately is reaping the rewards. Watch out for us continuing to grow and develop our
e-business strategy as there’s some exciting things about to happen!”
The gorgeous BIBA statue has taken pride of place both by Sylvia’s bedside and in the office but a huge thank you must go to all the team at The Recycle Works for all their hard work as well as a thank you to all our customers. We wouldn’t be where we are without any of you!
