A TEXTILE firm turning plastic bottles into sought-after fabrics was presented with industry's top award.
Dr Ingrid Roscoe, Lord Lieutenant of West Yorkshire, presented the Queen's Award for Enterprise to Interface Fabrics.
The presentation was made to managing director Paul Goodall at the firm's headquarters at Hopton Mills, Mirfield.
The company has its manufacturing plant at Meltham.
Employees from both sites attended the event and heard speeches by Mr Goodall and development director Cheryl Kindness.
They were also treated to a buffet and music.
Interface, which has about 270 employees, was recognised in the category for innovation following its success in recycling materials such as plastic bottles and the cushioned mesh from the inside of training shoes to make fabrics for seats and wall coverings.
The company supplies fabrics for offices, schools, and cinemas as well as buses and trains.
It is the second time staff have tasted Queen's Award success.
Interface's forerunner firm, Camborne Fabrics, won the Queen's Award for Exports in 1997 - shortly before the business was bought by US-based Interface Inc.
