Business advisory giant Deloitte has launched its all-island Best Managed Companies programme, which applauds the achievements of home-grown firms.

Some five Northern Irish companies won best-managed status last year, including construction firm Combined Facilities Management, manufacturer Denroy Plastics, tech firms Learning Pool and Novosco and resources company Williams Industrial Services.

Wilsons Auctions also received platinum status after earning a place in the best-managed ranks for a remarkable seventh year in a row. The programme, which Deloitte runs with Barclays Bank Ireland, recognises companies for their performance in strategy, capability, commitment, financials and management performance.

Glenn Roberts, senior partner at Deloitte, said: "This year, the judges will be paying particular attention to those companies really driving confidence in the indigenous business sector on both sides of the border.

"Previously successful companies have shown resilience, ambition, confidence, agility and innovation - all traits that this year's panel will be looking for.

"Showcasing the power of the best local companies not only increases the confidence of the winners, but also contributes to the overall confidence in the economy."

August 5 is the closing date for entries at www.deloittebestmanaged.ie. The successful companies will be unveiled in March next year.
