FOUR Limerick companies have been named in the Deloitte best managed companies network as the awards programme marks its tenth year.

Samco Agricultural Manufacturing, Adare, Roche’s Feeds at the Dock Roads, Action Point Technology Group, Plassey and Collins McNicholas, in neighbouring Castletroy have been all shortlisted for the prestigious awards.

All these firms were given best managed status following a detailed qualification and judging process.

This took into consideration the complete performance of the business, looking beyond finances at other criteria such as operational excellence, strategy and human resource processes.

For Collins McNicholas, it’s the firms fifth time to be named in this countdown, and it comes a month after the company was named as one of the Best Workplaces in Ireland in 2018. “We are delighted to be recognised for this award for the fifth year in a row. It is a testament to the commitment and dedication of our team, and the exceptional level of service they deliver, that has helped us to grow this business over the last 28 years,” said Niall Murray, its managing director.

The four Limerick companies were recognised at a gala dinner in Dublin attended by more than 1,000 business leaders.

Deloitte partner Anya Cummins said: “The programme represents companies from different industries with many industry-specific challenges but also characteristics such as adaptability, innovation and ambition. Their stories are the stories of Irish business this past decade, of resilience, recovery and confidence.”
