Global leader in the manufacture of multi-directional forklifts, with representation in Australia and New Zealand, Combilift has been crowned Manufacturing Exporter of the Year, at the 20th edition of the Irish Export Industry Awards – the premier event for recognising achievements of Irish exporters.
The award to Combilift was sponsored by Ace Express Freight and highlights the importance of exporting companies who have excelled across the manufacturing industry despite being faced with some very difficult and unprecedented trading conditions over the past two years.
Combilift was commended on having been fundamental to Ireland’s success and with eight other high-profile companies shortlisted for the award, this year saw one of the most competitive processes in the coveted awards’ history.
The award was presented by the Irish Exporters Association, the leading independent representative body and voice for exporters based in Ireland.
Simon McKeever, CEO, said the awards recognised the outstanding achievements of companies working in and supporting the export industry in Ireland.
“Across 10 categories, we celebrate Irish business excellence – from Innovators and small and emerging exporters, manufacturing, and sustainable companies, to the multinationals, from life sciences and food and drink exporters to the services and technology exporters and the many companies which provide vital services to the sector.”
Since its foundation in 1998, Combilift has grown to be the world leader in the manufacture of multi-directional forklifts. It has been acknowledged as an industry leader in providing materials handling solutions for long load handling.
Headquartered in Monaghan, Ireland and exporting globally, there are more than 50,000 Combilift units sold across 85 countries.
