A local business has been rated one of the 100 most innovative SME businesses in Greater Manchester.

Salt Separation Services, an independent water treatment company based in Rochdale, was awarded the rating by Business Growth Hub for their work providing engineered water treatment solutions across the world.

Previously supported by Business Growth Hub, the company was approached to submit an application.

Director Daniel Shackleton said: “We are pleased to be considered as one of the 100 most innovative businesses in Greater Manchester, particularly as we are an engineering company rather than a tech business. Our willingness to innovate and continually improve our product has resulted in a number of long term customers with whom we receive repeat business from.”

Salt Separation Services works in the offshore oil and gas, marine (both naval and commercial) and industrial markets, concentrating on membrane separation processes. This is predominantly reverse osmosis and nanofiltration, in order to remove salt from water so it is suitable for drinking, process and industrial purposes. Their plant types can treat tap water, right the way through to producing fresh water from seawater on-board ships.

Established in 1990, the company has gained a reputation for its quality equipment, which is custom built to suit customer requirements, whilst offering aftermarket support such as spares, service and technical support.

They are currently contracted to variety of projects from fitting reverse osmosis plants across cruise ships and Navy vessels worldwide to fitting a plant to treat waste water for reuse at a maltings.
