EDGE Innovate one of Ireland’s Best Managed Companies 2023
Northern Irish manufacturer EDGE Innovate have been named as one of Ireland’s Best Managed companies for the sixth year running, in the Deloitte Best Managed Companies Awards programme, requalifying as a Gold holder of this prestigious award
The awards programme is led by Deloitte Ireland, in association with Bank of Ireland. The company, which demonstrated superior business performance for the sixth time this year, was recognised at an awards ceremony on Thursday, 14 September 2023.
This year at the 15th annual awards ceremony, Deloitte recognised 130 indigenous companies representing 24 of the 32 counties across the island of Ireland. The network of companies has a combined turnover of €17 billion and €3 billion of exports sales, providing employment for over 53,000 people across Ireland across a range of sectors – from manufacturing and tech to construction and food and beverage.
A detailed judging process precedes the recognition, evaluating the entire management team and business strategy. The judges look beyond financial performance at areas such as a company’s environmental, social and governance standards, strategic planning, and talent strategy, when awarding Ireland’s top privately owned businesses.
Nikki Canavan, Senior Director, Head of Origination & Sustainability, Corporate Banking Ireland, and judging panel member said: “Over the last number of years the companies in the Best Managed Companies network have shown huge strength in the face of disruption and uncertainty. This year in particular – a year that tested Irish businesses like never before – the judges noted the commitment, bravery, resilience, and tenacity of the applicant companies.”
EDGE Innovate, a family company with a global reach has evolved to become one of the world’s largest manufacturers and exporters of sophisticated equipment for the quarrying, waste handling and recycling sectors. Employing 170 people directly, the Northern Irish based, County Tyrone company currently exports more than 99% of its products outside of the UK having developed a strong presence throughout overseas markets such as North America, Australia, and Middle East.
