Announcing the finalists, AJ Noonan (SFA Chairman and Chair of the Awards Judging Panel) commented: “The response to the awards programme serves as a reminder that Irish small companies are resilient, putting their best foot forward and seeking recognition for their efforts. The SFA National Small Business Awards are now entering their twelfth year and I could not be more proud to be part of such a prestigious awards programme. The companies that have been announced as finalists this year represent all that is good about small business. The people behind these companies are dynamic, diligent and determined.”
An Taoiseach Enda Kenny, TD (Patron of the Awards) stated that: “As a passionate supporter of small firms I, on behalf of the Government, am delighted to support the SFA Awards. Small firms support the vast majority of jobs in all parts of our country and are leading our recovery. The Awards provide an opportunity to highlight the success of our small firms as they support our recovery by seeking out new markets and new opportunities. Supporting our small firms is essential to the Government’s strategy of securing the recovery and spreading it to every part of the country.”
