Top Ulster companies prepare to go head-to-head against all-island rivals as countdown begins to this year’s prestigious Business Achievers Awards

Eight high-achieving Northern Ireland companies will go head-to-head with firms from across the island later this month to compete for the prestigious Ulster Bank Business Achievers Awards, following their recent success in the Ulster final of the scheme.

The all-island winners will be announced at the Mansion House in Dublin on Thursday, May 30.

The firms were selected for the all-island competition by winning prizes in the Ulster heats of the awards, run in association with the Belfast Telegraph and supported by Invest NI and IntertradeIreland.

Ian Jordan, director of Ulster Bank, praised the Ulster winners.

“We had a record number of entries this year, so the competition was intense and all of the companies who were in the running should be very proud,” he said.

“However, there were eight |deserving winners who reflect the growing diversity and strength of the SME sector and I am confident they will represent Ulster extremely well in the all-|island final.”

Here we take a look at the eight high-achieving Northern Ireland companies.
