Stanley Grange, home of NeedleSmart, had three of its businesses receive Highly Commended awards at last year’s Knowsley Business Awards. The ceremony took place in the grounds of Knowsley Safari and saw many local businesses pick up awards for their hard work and achievements during the year.


The beautiful Business Village on the edge of the Knowsley Estate is home to a number of vibrant businesses from a range of sectors. NeedleSmart, along with Seacon UK and ACR, call Stanley Grange home and were all nominated for awards.

NeedleSmart Limited, who have developed a market-leading technology for hypodermic needle disposal, have clients all over the world and received the Highly Commended award for Newcomer of the Year after being recognised for their innovation, passion and success.

CEO of NeedleSmart, Cliff Kirby, said “As an innovative new business all the staff at NeedleSmart were delighted to receive a Highly Commended Award for Newcomer of the Year. The team are dedicated and have the drive and passion required for success and I am very proud of their achievement.”

Stanley Grange Business Village offers a unique environment for tenants with offices which have been converted from traditional buildings yet have high quality technology and resources. Simon Waller, the Estates Director, added “I am thrilled that these businesses based at Stanley Grange have been recognised for their hard work and success. We look forward to supporting all those who are or will be able to call Stanley Grange home.”
