All of their products are fabricated at their state of the art factory in Craanford, just outside Gorey in Wexford and the company has been recognised for its contribution to trade and commerce in Co. Wexford.
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 K&K Windows MD Sorcha Kenny said:
We are delighted to be named Wexford Small Business Of The Year. The Accreditation is an independent acknowledgement that we provide a best in class service to our customers here in Wexford and beyond. We are proud of our team and grateful to our fantastic customers without who none of this would have been possible.
Deputy Chair on the Adjudication Board Kieran Ring, said in support of the announcement: “This accreditation is in recognition of K&K Windows outstanding contribution to trade and employment in Wexford. We wish to recognise K&K Windows conduct in the areas of trust, commitment, performance & customer-centricity.

We are honoured to have been awarded the coveted All-Star Wexford Small Business Of The Year 2021 Accreditation.
