Athy company Esta Manufacturing Sales has been named All-Star Kildare Business 2022 by the All-Ireland Business Foundation.

Founded in 1985 Esta is one of the longest established manufacturers and suppliers of motor control systems, turnkey projects and automation solutions in Ireland.

Esta is a business built on sound traditional values combined with a forward-thinking view of its trading environment. The company has been recognised with its second consecutive Business All-Star Accreditation in recognition of its contribution to trade and commerce in Co Kildare.

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.

Reacting to the announcement, Esta Manufacturing Sales Managing Director Jim Mc Guinness said:

We are delighted to announce that Esta Manufacturing Sales has been named All-Star Kildare Business 2022. This prestigious accolade recognises our contribution to trade and commerce in Co. Kildare and our conduct in the areas of Trust, Performance and Customer-Centricity. This is our second Business All-Star Accreditation which underlines our dedication to ongoing operational excellence. We’re so proud of our brilliant team and wish to acknowledge their efforts to deliver top-quality solutions to our valued customers.

Deputy Chair on the Adjudication Board Kieran Ring, said in support of the announcement: “Esta Manufacturing Sales has achieved All-Star Kildare Business 2022 accreditation in recognition of the company’s conduct in the areas of trust, performance and customer-centricity. Esta Manufacturing Sales is hereby included in the AIBF register of Irish business excellence for the second year in a row.

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.
