A Wexford window manufacturer has become one of the first businesses in the country to achieve a new quality mark.
The achievement signifies that K&K Windows In Gorey meet the highest standards of service and trust.
The firm was awarded the coveted All-Ireland Business All-Star accreditation – an independently verified standard mark for indigenous businesses, based on rigorous selection criteria.
The accreditation is overseen by the All-Ireland Business Foundation, whose adjudication panel is chaired by Dr. Briga Hynes of the Kemmy Business School at the University of Limerick and Kieran Ring, CEO of the Global Institute of Logistics.
Mr. Ring said: “This family run business has proved since its foundation the importance of always putting the customer first.
“The audit process put us in direct contact with the company’s customer base which assured us the entire customer experience, from first contact to after sales service, was conducted in the most professional manner.”
Dr. Hynes said the accreditation, which is now held by 170 firms, is needed by the thousands of small and medium firms out there who operate to their own standards but have nothing to measure them by.
The All-Ireland Business Foundation will be responsible for identifying and accrediting best-in-class Irish businesses, overseeing both the awards and ongoing accreditation, promoting peer dialogue, in addition to hosting the All-Ireland Business Summit on May 1 and 2 next year.
