Athlone Extrusions picked up the ‘Medium Size Exporter of the Year’ award at the Irish Exporters Organisation’s (IEA) annual awards ceremony held in Dublin recently.
The firm, a leading manufacturer of thermoplastic sheet and film products, was recognised for its business growth, both in new and developing markets, through a combination of new products and new routes to market.
Recent new products include Durogloss, a high-gloss scratch resistant PMMA-ABS foil which is laminated to MDF board and used in high-end furniture applications.
Athlone commercial manager Adrian Dickson said: “Equally important to new products are the markets – market presence and routes to market.
“Athlone Extrusions fully appreciates that local markets need local people to grow sales. We combine a direct sales force with offices in Ireland, the UK, The Netherlands, complimented by a network of agents and distributors.”
