Cork City company Foley’s Plumbing has been named AIBF Cork Plumbing & Electrical Company Of The Year 2022.
Foleys Plumbing & Electrical was founded with the aim of improving trades services for the people of Cork.
The company has grown to become the leading plumbing and electrical business in Cork with more than 10,000 successful jobs completed so far.
Business All-Star accreditation comes in recognition of the company’s stellar rise in the plumbing and electrical sector.
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, Foleys Plumbing Ltd Managing Director & Owner James Foley said:
“The Foley’s Plumbing team is proud to announce that we have achieved Business All-Star Accreditation for the second year in-a-row. This prestigious accolade comes in recognition of our ‘stellar rise in the plumbing & electrical sector’.”
“We are proud to be part of the elite Business All-Star community and honoured to display the AIBF Marque as a symbol of trust and quality.”
Deputy Chair of the Adjudication Board, Kieran Ring, said in support of the announcement:
“Foleys Plumbing Ltd has achieved All-Star Cork Plumbing & Electrical Company Of The Year 2022 accreditation. The accreditation is in recognition of Foley’s Plumbing Ltd’s stellar rise in the plumbing & electrical sector. Foleys Plumbing Ltd is hereby included in The AIBF Register Of Irish Business Excellence (TRIBE) 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.
