The team at Whale is delighted to have been recognized as a quality company delivering the best in innovation and service by being awarded the Top Prize at the Northern Ireland Quality Award Gala at the Ramada Hotel last night (Thursday 27th January).
Patrick Hurst, Managing Director of Whale commented:-
“It is a tremendous result for Whale (Munster Simms Engineering Ltd) to have won the 2010 Northern Ireland Quality Awards. The result is recognition for all the hard work and excellent attitude our employees have.
Despite the recession, the company has grown with the past year resulting in the highest sales on record. This is a result of product innovation, striving for excellence and a team of talented individuals all aiming for the same goal – that of outstanding quality. This award along with being listed in the Sunday Times Top 100 Best Small Companies to Work For are the two highlights of 2010, a year in which the company celebrated 200 years from its origins.
For the future of Whale we will review the assessor’s feedback and continued to set the bar higher for 2011.”
