Chip Shot: Intel Ireland named as Manufacturer of the Year

The annual InBusiness Editor’s Choice Awards took place yesterday at the Hibernian Club, Stephen’s Green, Dublin, recognising excellence in business over a wide variety of categories.

The awards are run in association with Chambers Ireland and winners were chosen by the editorial team of InBusiness on the broad criteria of company growth, profile of business, range of services offered and business to customer relationships. Over the past number of years, InBusiness has reported extensively on the state of business affairs in Ireland, but these awards represented an opportunity to celebrate the success stories in Irish business. InBusiness Editor Joseph O’ Connor said: “it’s also been a pleasure to cover the highs – those companies who have thrived in adversity or shown inspirational leadership and innovation when it has been most needed. We are delighted to recognise the men, women and firms who have displayed such qualities with this event.”

Intel Ireland was honored at the ceremony as the recipient of the Manufacturer of the Year award.

Brendan Cannon, Director of Corporate Affairs, Intel Ireland, accepted the award on behalf of Intel Ireland and said “I am delighted and proud to accept this award on behalf of Intel Ireland. This award is very much a testament to the ongoingachievements of the Intel team at our Leixlip campus and is also a recognition of the important role that advanced manufacturing plays as part of a modern, knowledge economy”.
