Quality enthusiasts will be delighted to hear that local companies Centra Coleraine and SuperValu Portstewart were nominated for a prestigious Q Mark Award at this year’s National Q Mark Awards, held in the Double Tree by Hilton Hotel.
The Q Mark certification is awarded only to companies who achieve the highest standards of quality and excellence, with Q Mark criteria ensuring that clients exceed legal requirements rather than simply adhering to them. This further assures consumers that companies who hold the ‘Q’ are committed to continuous improvement and best practice.
“It’s fantastic to see local businesses being nominated for The Q Mark Awards!” says Irene Collins, Managing Director, EIQA (Excellence Ireland Quality Association), speaking at the event. “To be nominated for The Q Mark Awards is an enormous achievement, particularly as this year has seen the highest number of attendees at the star studded event.” she continued; “Companies who hold The Q Mark demonstrate to their customers that the highest standards of quality and excellence are at the heart of their business and that is something that is really worth celebrating!”
The EIQA offers its programmes across all sectors, with customers in retail, food service, manufacturing, institutions, prison services, government, healthcare, business and professional services, financial institutions, nursing homes, leisure centres and not for profit organisations.
