A number of local businesses have been awarded Ireland’s Best Managed Companies accolade at the 15th annual awards programme, led by Deloitte in association with Bank of Ireland. This year, Deloitte recognised 130 indigenous companies at the awards representing 24 of the 32 counties across the country.
Amongst the winning companies this year was McAree Engineering Ltd.
The company was a platinum winner having won for the seventh consecutive year, while Combilift and Errigal Contracts Group Limited requalified this year having also been recognised in previous years at the awards.
Meanwhile, Kyte Powertech in Cavan was a first-time winner.
Brian Murphy is the Lead Partner for Ireland's Best Managed Companies Awards Programme at Deloitte.
In a statement issued to Northern Sound, he said that despite the uncertainties of the past few years, the confidence of these local businesses is clear as more and more are scaling their market reach internationally.
He added; "This year we’re celebrating 15 years of the BMC programme and the incredible companies that have qualified. Even though this year’s cohort faced into another challenging period, over the past 15 years we’ve seen how indigenous Irish businesses find opportunities in change. Strengthening governance and recognising the value of specialist expert advice on critical areas such as ESG were key discussion points in the coaching sessions. We also saw companies increasingly focused on innovation driving internationalisation.
