UK remanufacturer recognised with the Environmental Award at event held at Rochdale Town Hall, England on 8 November.

Kleen Strike has announced that it has won a Rochdale Business Award in the “Environment” category, with the company accepting the award at an event attended by over 300 guests and nominees.

Established in 2011, the Rochdale Business Awards aim to celebrate the achievements of businesses and business people in the Rochdale area, with nine different awards distributed to winning companies; including the Environmental Award, which recognises a business that is able to demonstrate “measurable environmental improvements, such as reducing waste and/or energy usage” as well as promoting sustainability to its employees and suppliers.

After receiving the award, Alistair Barker, Director of Kleen Strike, said: “We were grateful to be recognised in this category especially with climate change now such an important concern worldwide.” He added that he was hopeful that “more companies will see that even small companies such as ours are vital in making a difference.”

The Recycler reported in January on the relocation of Kleen Strike after operating at the same premises for 27 years, with Barker and Laura Heywood discussing the company’s highlights over the years and its plans for the future at its new premises.
