An environmentally-friendly second-hand car part company has won a top award.

SS Companents, in Huddersfield Road, Mirfield, was presented with a Gold Category accolade in the Green Environment Awards for Best Practice.

It pipped more than 500 other entrants across the country to the post for the award.

The firm was presented with a trophy and certificate during a ceremony at the Houses of Parliament,

It is a world-wide supplier of second-hand vehicle parts and its exports include brake callipers, motors and alternators.

Operations manager Mark Heaps said: “We were extremely surprised but so delighted with the award.

“The fact that we deal with people all over the world means it is something we can now use to promote our business.

“We have already had new customers ringing us and saying they have seen we’ve won the award and they want to use us.

“We have all put in a lot of hard work and dedication so it has been a team effort as a company to win.”

The Green Apple Awards began in 1994 to recognise companies, councils and communities across the country for their contribution to the environment.
