Laois-based air management company Aubren Limited has been accredited as Business All-Star 2022 by the All-Ireland Business Foundation (AIBF).

The company, headquartered at Portlaoise Business & Technology Park, has received the external quality mark in recognition of its conduct in the areas of trust, commitment, performance and customer centricity. Aubren has also been added to The AIBF Register of Irish Business Excellence (TRIBE) as part of the accolade.

Aubren Limited uses its engineering and business expertise to help companies design, manufacture and deliver high-quality products to condition, control and monitor air quality.

This work sees the company collaborate with innovators in the air handling, cleantech and meditech sectors, as well as manufacturers who require air handling components.

As well as their own team in Portlaoise, Aubren also works closely with a growing base of worldwide representatives in countries including Canada, United Arab Emirates, Morocco and South Africa.

Business All-Star accreditation is an independently verified standard mark for indigenous businesses, based on rigorous selection criteria.

The accreditation is overseen by the prestigious All-Ireland Business Foundation, whose adjudication panel is chaired by Dr Briga Hynes of the University of Limerick and Kieran Ring, CEO of the Global Institute of Logistics.

Financial Director at Aubren, Mary Ahearne, said they’re “delighted and honoured” with this accreditation:

“Our mission is to drive innovation and excellence in cooling and air cleaning products for the most demanding, mission critical applications, through sustainability and minimising energy usage.”

“All solutions are specified and fabricated to order from our advanced manufacturing facility in Co Laois. All credit is due to each member of the Aubren team, because our people are the foundation to our success.”

Deputy Chair of the Adjudication Board, Kieran Ring, has paid tribute to the team in Portlaoise for their ongoing success:

“This certificate verifies that Aubren Limited has achieved Business All-Star 2022 accreditation.”

“We wish to recognise Aubren Limited’s conduct in the areas of trust, commitment, performance & customer centricity. The company is hereby included in The AIBF Register of Irish Business Excellence (TRIBE).”

Managing Director of the All-Ireland Business Foundation, Kapil Khanna, said the accreditation, which is now held by over 500 firms, is needed by the thousands of small and medium businesses which operate to their own standards but have nothing to measure them by.

He said: “We evaluate a company’s background, trustworthiness and performance, and we speak to customers, employees and vendors. We also anonymously approach the company as a customer and report back on the experience. The business goes through at least two interviews and is scored on every part of the process against set metrics.”

The All-Ireland Business Foundation (AIBF) is an autonomous national accreditation body tasked with enterprise development and the promotion of Best-in-Class in Irish business.

The Foundation actively engages and supports its network through peer dialogue, collaboration, mentoring and enterprise development activities. Companies are qualified for accreditation by completing an enterprise audit and are identified by their use of the AIBF’s Business All-Star Marque.
