ESF Triumphs At Local & National Awards

23rd May 2018 Paul Andrews

Environmental Street Furniture is no stranger to industry success but the supplier and designer of street, themed and solar powered products has taken the local and national stages by storm too!

The Newtownabbey based company won the Excellence in Exporting Award at the recent Belfast Telegraph Business Awards and subsequently won the Best in Business and Product Innovation at the National Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) awards for their newly launched Stellar Solar Bench. The company was representing Northern Ireland at the ceremony after winning the regional title. 

Speaking about the company’s success, ESF Managing Director, Alan Lowry said, “To be recognised at these esteemed awards in itself is an achievement but to walk away as winners in exporting and for the Stellar Solar Bench – the first product designed and manufactured by ESF - is incredible for our company.”

Alan continued, “We have worked tirelessly to establish ESF in what is a competitive industry but gaining this recognition makes it all worthwhile for myself and the team. We look forward to building on our achievements and moving forward with the company.”

Speaking about ESF’s win at the FSB National Awards, Brendan Kearney, FSB NI Region Chair said, “Many congratulations to Alan Lowry and all of his team at Environmental Street Furniture. Their success on the national stage, seeing off competition from the best businesses from every other region of the UK, is testament to the excellence we have here within our local small business community.”

ESF was also shortlisted as finalists in the recent Aer Lingus TakeOff Foundation awards and the Made in Northern Ireland awards for their success in exporting. The company also won the ‘International Award’ at the 2017 UTV Business Eye Awards. ESF now exports into 22 countries and has supplied products to some of the world’s most famous theme parks globally.
