Sponsored

Roadbridge has won the overall National Q Mark title for Q Mark Civil Engineering Group of the Year sponsored by Asystec and the Best Food Services team in Ireland for Hygiene & Food Safety, at the National Q Mark Awards 2018.

Its nomination put it in the top 6.75 per cent of all audits completed by the Excellence Ireland Quality Association (EIQA) on the island of Ireland and this win means they are at the very top of the Q for highest standards of Quality and Excellence.

Speaking shortly after the win, Peter Byrne, quality and environmental manager, said: “These awards are a fantastic validation of the efforts made by our people each and every day. Getting to this level is no accident, it is simply down to the hard work and dedication of people throughout the organisation.”

Conor  Gilligan, managing  director said: “Having been  successful  in  winning  an  award  in  2014,  we  have  seen  first-hand  the  advantages  it  brings  to  our  dealings  with  potential  customers  and  has  been  a  very  valuable  asset  in  our  tenders. Quite  simply,  it  is  worth  the  time  and  effort,  and  is  excellent  value  for  money.”

Caroline  Mulcahy, food  safety  manager, said: “Winning  the  prestigious  Q  Mark  Award  in  Hygiene  &  Food  Safety  validates  our  efforts  to  provide  safe  food  through  an  independent  auditor  who  has  verified  our  commitment  and  has  recognised  our  efforts.  This in  turn  demonstrates  to  our  clients  and customers  our  commitment  to  food hygiene  and  food  safety”.

Known as the Oscars of business excellence, the Q Mark Award is the highest accolade an Irish business can achieve, given both the intense competition and the exacting standards required.

Speaking at this year’s awards Irene Collins, managing director of EIQA, said: “Collective responsibility for high operational standards has yielded a fantastic result for Peter, Caroline and their teams…increased contracts and a much coveted Q Mark Trophy. A fantastic result.
