The finalists in the 2020 IMR Manufacturing and Supply Chain Awards have been announced. First introduced last year, the IMR Manufacturing and Supply Chain Awards showcase exceptional achievement, teamwork and innovation in Irish manufacturing. They are unique in recognising not only the achievements of Irish manufacturing companies and their supply chains but also of the collaborating teams within them.

The Awards competition was established to highlight the implementation of smart thinking to enable competitive manufacturing, while reflecting Ireland’s capacity to deliver world class manufacturing and attract inward investment. All of the finalists are listed below under the various categories which span the full spectrum of the Irish manufacturing industry.

The winners in each category of the 2020 IMR Manufacturing and Supply Chain Awards will be announced at a special ceremony and gala dinner in the Citywest Hotel in Dublin on the evening of Wednesday, 29 January 2020. Early Bird Tickets are available until 20th of December 2019 – contact Premier Publishing & Events on Tel 01 6120880 or

The Awards are run by Premier Publishing & Events, the Dublin-based international conference and exhibition organiser and publisher, in association with Irish Manufacturing Research (IMR), the independent not-for-profit Research Organisation, funded under the Enterprise Ireland/IDA Technology Centres programme, to provide applied research solutions and advanced manufacturing expertise, technology transfer and training to the manufacturing sector in Ireland.

The Awards presentation dinner will be a fitting conclusion to the opening day of the 2020 National Manufacturing & Supply Chain Conference & Exhibition taking place at the CityWest Convention Centre on 29–30 of January.
