Regional winners of other categories include FinTrU (The Global Player); Re-Gen Robotics (The Problem Solver); Lumenstream (The Game Changer); and Cundall (The Equality Trailblazer).

Highly Commended awards were also claimed by Denroy Group (The Problem Solver); InspecVision (The Global Player); Connex Offsite (The Game Changer); and Allstate NI (The Equality Trailblazer).

Paul Murnaghan, President of NI Chamber of Commerce and Industry, said: “Each year our judges are impressed by the calibre of entries, and this year was no different. I would like to wish all of our winning member businesses my sincere congratulations.

“Our business communities continue to generate prosperity and opportunity so it’s only right that we support and shout about the fantastic things they are doing. Encirc deserves to be celebrated for its ongoing commitment to sustainability and I wish them good luck for the national awards ceremony in December”.
