Isleworth based Ormiston Wire, a leading wire specialist and braid manufacturer and supplier, has been awarded the Hounslow Business Award for Best Green Business.

The award recognises Ormiston Wire's ongoing commitment to environmental policy and sustainability procedures. Ormiston Wire, a sixth generation family owned business which has been operating for over 220 years, is one of the industry's leading supporters of environmental sustainability. The wire manufacturer has previously been commended with the Queen's Award for its achievements in sustainable development.

Ormiston Wire initially introduced cost-reducing energy efficiency measures at the beginning of the 1990s. Over two decades later and the wire manufacturer has developed its environmental sustainability measures still further, which includes the implementation of new energy saving technology and instilling an ethical ethos in the workforce. The measures Ormiston Wire introduced include installing light bulbs with motion sensors, recycling at every opportunity and utilising a high-efficiency condensing gas boiler. These changes have led to annual energy savings of tens of thousands of pounds.

"I'm delighted Ormiston Wire has won this award, which recognises our continuous commitment to environmental sustainability in the manufacturing process," said Mark Ormiston, the company’s Managing Director. "Ormiston Wire regards excellent environmental sustainability alongside delivering outstanding customer service as a core business priority. We understand the benefits of adopting sustainable business practices and how it can positively affect both the planet and profits."

The annual Hounslow Business Awards is developed and organised by Hounslow Chamber of Commerce and celebrates the achievements of both small and large local businesses. The Best Green Business Award required nominees to best demonstrate how its green and sustainability ethos and practices positively contributed towards carbon reduction, recycling policy and the promotion and adoption of green innovation and technologies.
