Tuam-based manufacturer JFC Manufacturing were named winners of the “Green Business” award for Connacht at the Connacht final of the Ulster Bank Business Achievers Awards last week.
With its headquarters in Tuam Co Galway, JFC has sales offices in Shropshire and Stratford-Upon-Avon in the UK, and further sites in The Netherlands, South Africa and Poland. The company also has an additional recycling division in Runcorn, Cheshire, called JFC Plastics.
JFC won the accolade for its unique twin wall surface water drainage pipe known as CorriPipe™.
JFC's award recognised their achievements in the development of the drainage pipe on its merits as a quality product, successfully used in the construction industry, which is environmentally sustainable during its manufacture and end use.
John Concannon, Managing Director JFC Manufacturing Co Ltd and winner of the 2009 Connacht Green Business Category said winning an Ulster Bank Business Achievers Award at provincial level is a great honor and achievement.
“The awards celebrate businesses who are showing leadership, success and contribution to the economy in the face of many challenges and obstacles, regardless of the business offering, service or location and we are proud to have been honoured,” he said.
