Fintec's Paul Colton and Economy Minister Arlene Foster watch as The Duke of Abercorn presents the award to Fintec's Hubert Watson
Ireland-based crushing and screening manufacturer Fintec has celebrated its success in gaining a second Queen's Award for Enterprise with its 300-strong workforce and their families. The company closed the Dungannon factory for the day to gather workers together for formal presentation of the award and give their families a tour of the production facilities.
Fintec won its first Queen's Award in 2006 and has gained its second accolade for achieving sales growth of around 300% over the last three years. Economy Minister Arlene Foster said during the presentation ceremony, "The Queen's Award for Enterprise is only bestowed upon companies that have achieved substantial and sustained growth in overseas trade. The award winners are chosen with the assistance of industry representatives, senior government officials and the Prime Minister, so there is no stronger endorsement of a company's performance.
"The company continues to invest in research and development and staff training in order to streamline processes and enhance its product range. Indeed, the company has recently, with the support of Invest NI, committed almost £800,000 to help staff and management further develop quality control mechanisms and integrate new production techniques."
