Sponsors of the Made in Northern Ireland Awards 2021 are Deloitte, HSBC UK and MCS Group and Tughans Solicitors.
Insider’s regional business editor, Philip Cunliffe, brought together an independent panel of judges to scrutinise, assess and evaluate all the entries in the nine award categories.
He said: “It has of course been an extraordinary year for everybody but manufacturers have been particularly affected and especially in Northern Ireland which has had issues following Brexit to contend with as well as Covid. So it’s great to have received so many entry submissions and to read the amazing work that Northern Ireland manufacturers have been doing over the last 12 months or so. They have not only shown great resilience and perseverance but huge skill as well in adapting to the new world.”
Dr. Jan Antonis, InspecVision Managing Director commenting on the shortlisting success: “InspecVision’s shortlisting in not one, but two categories highlights how the company has successfully developed both in terms of innovation and expansion of our overseas markets. The last year brought immense challenges but the tremendous work of our team, together with our distributors, has ensured we continue to innovate and deliver real value to our customers worldwide.
The winners will be revealed at the gala award dinner taking place at the Europa Hotel, Belfast on Friday 12th November 2021.
