Northern Ireland based SlurryKat has picked up yet another prestigious award to add to its growing array of plaudits for innovation and design.
The Waringstown-based company now has an increasingly glowing reputation for excellent and is widely recognised as a serious world-class company, supplying to at least 17 countries with its unique agricultural slurry handling equipment.
The thriving, award-winning Northern Ireland based firm, which provides contractors and farmers with a range of equipment to spread slurry, has already won a number of awards over the last two years.
This most recent award, Company Of The Year 2011, was awarded by the Association Of Charted Accountants Ireland.
Managing Director and Principal Engineer Garth Cairns (Pictured Above) said: "Winning this award, to add to the others we have already won, is further confirmation that SlurryKat is the major force in providing innovative slurry equipment that we have developed and distributed to an ever- growing market.
"Who would have thought that a Northern Ireland agricultural manufacturer would be leading the world with their unique slurry handling equipment? The plans we have for SlurryKat to deliver more equipment and parts to an ever wider geographical area will deliver exponential growth for us in the next two years and beyond."
Garth initially set up the business with just two employees after purchasing the SlurryKat brand name and distribution rights. His aim was to refocus the attention of farmers and professional contractors on the benefits of efficient slurry use, using umbilical slurry spreading techniques.
"This has now grown to include the building of a bespoke range of Super Tankers, which cannot be made fast enough due to the high demand. Again, SlurryKat Super Tankers are totally unique and tailored to each individual specification," said Garth.
SlurryKat currently has 23 people employed and is still expanding, so as the company continues with its expansion program and with a healthy order book, this is likely to increase.
The Northern Ireland Company has now offices in Ireland and Bristol in the UK. They are also looking at distribution outlets as far as Australia and New Zealand.
