AN energy saving firm from Bootle which recycles warm waste water has been named runner up at the Merseyside Independent Business Awards.
Power-Pipe UK, based on Canal Street, uses warm water from showering to pre-heat incoming cold fresh water.
They were nominated in the competition's Trade Manufacturer and Engineering Business of the Year category and finished second.
Power-Pipe UK beat off stiff competition in its group to scoop to second place at the glitzy black tie event held at Liverpool’s Titanic Hotel.
Now in its third year, The Merseyside Independent Business Awards was created by Moorcrofts Solicitors to recognise and reward the region’s independent business sector.
Ashley Prescott, director at Power-Pipe UK, who collected the award said: “It was an amazing honour to be nominated for the awards, but to go home as runner-up was something else.”
