Waterford going for gold as the National Q Mark Award nominations are announced






Waterford businesses are celebrating today after being nominated for the National Q Mark Awards 2018.

Waterford businesses - Mace Houlihan Lismore, Garvey's Centra Coolagh, Daybreak Dungarvan, Quish's SuperValu Tramore, Kelleher's SuperValu Cappoquin and SuperValu Waterford - are in the top 6.75% of all audits completed by the EIQA in Ireland.  

This is a very special year for the Q Mark Awards as the EIQA celebrate 50 years. The coveted Q Mark is awarded only to companies who achieve the highest standards of quality and excellence. The Q Mark awards celebrate the success of businesses over a range of sectors that review 100% of their processes and procedures 100% of the time so that they continually operate best practice standards.

The National Q Mark Awards, sponsored by eTravel and Virgin Atlantic, will take place on Friday 28th September at The Clayton Hotel in Dublin 4. The black-tie ceremony will be hosted by broadcaster Jonathan Healy.  

With more than 450 people and 135 companies battling it out for the 27 prestigious Q Mark Awards, it is no surprise that the National Q Mark Awards continue to be known as ‘The Oscars of Business Excellence’. A National Q Mark Award is the highest accolade an Irish business can achieve, given both the intense competition and the exacting standards required.
