This time last year it was our team here at Mole Group who couldn’t stop staring at our £10,000 giant cheque after winning Merseyside Innovation Award.  This year that delight goes to NanoFlex, manufacturers of high performance electrodes.

Our MD David Furlong was on the judging panel this year alongside Roger Johnson from BBC North West and Paul Jenkins, Research and Development Director of Unilever.  Having been through the nerve wracking experience of being on the shortlist Dave thoroughly enjoyed being on the panel although it was a tough call between 2013’s three finalists.  Please look them up to see the innovation and good work that got them onto the shortlist:

Big Heritage, engaging schools and communities with their past in their area www.bigheritage.co.uk CNC Robotics, robotic machining solutions for many applications www.cncrobotics.co.uk NanoFlex Limited, electrodes for electrochemical research www.nanoflex.com

Linda McDermott of BBC Radio Merseyside hosted the event with her usual warmth and enthusiasm.  A high feel good factor to see so many representatives from the business community celebrating the innovation, industry and passion in our region, bring on 2014!
