We would like to thank all our drivers and customers for their continued support over the years. We are looking forward to working with & getting support from the AIBF in the future.
Deputy Chair on the Adjudication Board Kieran Ring, said in support of the announcement: “Jacobus Coaches & Mini Bus Hire has achieved AIBF 2021-1008 Business All-Star 2022 Accreditation, in recognition of the company’s conduct in the areas of trust, performance and customer-centricity. Jacobus Coaches ltd is hereby included in the AIBF Register Of Irish Business Excellence.”
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 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.
