01 July 2013
Cronin & Sutton Consulting, John Cradock Ltd, King Environmental Services and David Walsh Civil Engineering were some of the engineering and construction companies among the 40 private and public sector organisations receiving awards last week (26 June) from the Minister of State for Small Business, John Perry.
The leading companies joined the likes of the Office of the Revenue Commissioners, Electric Ireland, National Learning Network and Danone Baby Nutrition in achieving world-class levels of excellence under a range of headings including Environmental Management, Quality Management, Excellence Through People, and Food Safety Systems, which is the most recent addition to the National Standards Authority of Ireland’s (NSAI’s) certification schemes.
“Standards affect every aspect of our day-to-day lives and are vital in the current economic climate. Implementing them in business enables companies to improve their efficiency and competitiveness, minimise waste and reduce costs,” said Perry. “There’s a return on investment – certification to standards help to create a level playing field, allowing SMEs to compete with much larger companies, attract new customers, and access global markets.”
