Speaking at the Awards Ceremony, Hugh Kelly, President of the Irish Exporters Association said: “The Irish Exporters Association Annual Awards are so important because they acknowledge and celebrate the achievements of the most important sector in Ireland’s economy. The unwavering commitment of our exporters to delivering world-class customer service and solutions has played a significant role in our economic recovery.”

He went on to commend the calibre of nominees and in particular Combilift, “The standard of Award entrants this year was higher than ever before but our judges were struck by the energy, ability and ambition of Combilift’s management and employees to deliver strong results, year after year. They commended the continuous innovation evident in the company’s product range, its standards of excellence in manufacturing and its contributions as a substantial employer in Monaghan.
