Ballygawley based Sandvik Construction Mobile Crushers and Screens has been awarded the Aer Lingus Viscount 2016 exporter of the year. The awards, held in conjunction with Ulster Business, celebrate the very best in the private business sector in Northern Ireland. The award is recognition of the excellent work by the company in increasing export sales, thereby contributing to the economy of Northern Ireland.
Judged by a panel of esteemed business figures, the Aer Lingus Viscount Awards have grown to become the premier business awards in Northern Ireland. Entries are received from some of the most dynamic and innovative companies in the country. Previous Viscount Award winners have come from a variety of sectors, with the awards recognising the excellence of their performance, whatever their business.
On the 24th May an awards luncheon was held at the Institute of Directors offices in Pall Mall, London. Here Sandvik Mobile Crushers and Screens was named as the recipient of the 2016 Aer Lingus Viscount Award for Exporter of the Year. Terry Allison, Managing Director, Sandvik Construction Mobile Crushers and Screens, commented: “We would like to thank everyone for their continued efforts. Their contribution to the business has helped us (Sandvik Construction) achieve this award. It is testimony to the people within the organisation all playing a key part in enabling our success in making our operation truly global.”
The Exporter of the Year Award is presented to the company that best demonstrates how, in the last 12 months, it has increased export sales, with a clear commitment to expanding its business outside of Northern Ireland. The award is thus seen as a fantastic achievement, and recognises Sandvik Construction’s contribution to Northern Ireland, and the Mobile Crushers and Screens contribution to Sandvik.
