The awards are organised by the Sligo Champion and the winners were announced at a gala dinner on Friday evening at the Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa.
Ward Automation won the Best Innovation in Business Award. It is an award that recognises an overall commitment to innovation, something which is part of Ward Automation’s DNA.

“At Ward Automation, we have a passion for innovation,” he said. “It is a vital part of our design team’s process of developing creative solutions to complex automation challenges.”
SL Controls won the Best Corporate Social Responsibility Award for its Live Well at SL and Think Well at SL programmes. Live Well at SL promotes good physical health and fitness for SL Controls employees, while Think Well at SL focuses on good mental health in the workplace.

“We have several initiatives, policies, and procedures that help us achieve these goals, including Live Well at SL and Think Well at SL.
“As corporate social responsibility is so important to us, winning this award is very special.”
Finally, after winning the Best Corporate Social Responsibility category, SL Controls picked up the big award of the evening, the Best Overall Business Award.
