AG’s award-winning streak
The leading paving and building manufacturer has scooped a series of major industry awards in quick succession
AG, leading paving and building manufacturer, has won a series of industry awards in quick succession across Northern Ireland.
Established over 60 years ago, AG is a 3rd generation family-owned business which now employs more than 230 people at six locations across the UK and Ireland.
The first accolade was being Highly Commended in for its Sustainability Strategy and winning the Contribution to the Community award at the Fermanagh Herald Business Awards. The awards celebrate initiative, ingenuity and a determination to succeed.
The company was recognised at the ceremony for its support of local charities and community groups with the company donating tens of thousands to worthy causes in recent years.
AG was also recognised at the NISG (Northern Ireland Safety Group) Awards for its ongoing commitment to health and safety in the workforce. These awards recognise companies that are going above and beyond to ensure their workplace is safe.
AG’s dedication to introducing sustainable practices into their processes has seen them shortlisted at the Business Eye Awards. The award recognises, and rewards organisations that are going above and beyond their legal environmental requirements.
AG already has one of the lowest carbon footprints in the industry and this shortlist highlights their commitment to reducing the environmental impact of its operations to an absolute minimum. As well as this, the company has achieved shortlisting in the Manufacturer of the Year and Innovative Company of the Year categories.
Stephen Acheson, CEO at AG, said winning the awards was fitting recognition of the outstanding work everyone at AG has been doing.
“We are extremely proud to receive these awards. The past year has seen continued growth within challenging market conditions, and it is truly amazing to be able to share these awards with everyone at AG as we recognise their hard work and commitment to doing and being better.”
“Since we first opened over 60 years ago, we have held family values at the core of our business operations and are committed to making construction, better, faster and safer. Innovation is at the heart of what we do, and we plan to continue our focus in these areas while maintaining our community work and investment in the training and development of our staff.”
