Founder and chairman of incineration company Inciner8 Vincent Ferguson has been awarded an OBE in the New Years Honour List for his services to export and manufacturing.

Ferguson founded the Southport-based Inciner8 in 2004 and sold his first incinerator to a poultry farm in Australia.

Inciner8 designs and builds incinerators for businesses, governments, health services, charities, NGOs and aid agencies and now exports to more than 180 countries.

Inciner8 launched a range of Waste to Energy solutions to convert heat produced from the process into electricity, an area of the business it said will grow over the next 12 months.

The company also developed in 2017 what it claimed to be the world’s first mobile human crematorium which is fully portable.

Ferguson said: “Being awarded an OBE is incredibly humbling and such an honour to be regarded amongst those who are achieving excellent things in their business and personal careers.

“Exporting is vitally important to ensure our products service the waste management demands from both the UK and overseas markets, with this honour raising the profile of great British manufacturing on a global scale.”

Inciner8 employs 35 staff including apprenticeships and is targeted to reach a turnover of £12m in the next financial year.

In his spare time, Ferguson take part in charity events most recently being the Race the Sun challenge through the Brecon Beacons.
