Joanne Liddle, Managing Director of IPC Mouldings, who picked up the award said: “We are absolutely delighted that we have won the Manufacturer of the Year Award at the First Trust Business Eye Small Business Awards. This last year has been a very busy year for the company and although there is no let up in sight,this award goes some way to recognising the hard work and effort we as a team have put in to making us a winning and successful company.
“It is great to be recognised in Northern Ireland for our commitment to innovation and R&D and exceeding customer expectations. Apart from being awarded the prestigious SC21 Bronze and EFQM Excellence Recognition in the last year, which are important in the aerospace sector, this is the company’s first business award, and hopefully it is the start of many more to come!”
