We are delighted to have been chosen as SME of the Year at the Cork Business Awards 2018 earlier this month.

Finding out that we had been nominated for the award a few weeks before and then going on to win the award at the glittering ceremony held at the Clayton Hotel, Silver Springs, in Cork, on Saturday November 3rd 2018 made for an exciting few weeks!

This award ceremony takes place every year and is a celebration of the best of the 45,000 businesses throughout Cork City and County that network through ‘Business Cork’.

We were thrilled to be there as a nominee for the Cork SME Company of the Year 2018 category. This category is one that recognises small to medium enterprises, employing up to fifty people, and includes multi-nationals. These businesses have to have shown significant success and growth over the preceding year. Having been nominated for the same category in 2017, we are delighted to announce that this time we were successful in gaining the prestigious title of SME of the Year 2018. This was great validation for all of the hard work that has been put in by all the members of our company over the past year, and is in no small part due to our extensive client base.
