Institute Based Engineering Company recognised nationally
Engineering Documentation Ltd. honoured by Small Firms Association
Engineering Documentation, based at the Business Innovation Centre at Institute of Technology, Sligo has been recognised as one of five of the Best Emerging New Businesses Nationally at the Small Firms Association Small Business Award 2009. The company is a winner in this new category which recognises the achievements of start-up companies in Ireland.
Formed in 2006, Engineering Documentation produces safety files and mechanical and electrical operation and maintenance manuals for the construction industry, which give the end user a complete record of everything installed in the building. Its emphasis on engineering separates the company from competitors which offer administrative services only. Turnover at the company has doubled year on year.
Greg Swift, CEO Dublin City Enterprise Board, An Taoiseach Brian Cowen, David Mullen Engineering Documentation Ltd and Aidan O’Boyle, Chairman, Small Firms Association. Engineering Documentation Ltd was recognised as a Best Emerging New Business at the Small Firms Association Small Business Award 2009.
Engineering Documentation was selected along with four other start-up businesses, each of which has the potential to grow into a successful organisation that will be innovative and create employment. It is hoped these companies will be future winners of the SFA National Small Business Award.
Company Director, David Mullen acknowledges the support he has been given by the Business Innovation Centre at IT Sligo. ‘The Centre is in the business of providing incubation space for new businesses and being based here meant that we were ‘in the know’ when it came to what supports were available to the company’ says Mullen. He also reenforced the importance of the support of the Institute itself. ‘The links with IT Sligo too are invaluable, as there is a wealth of information and expertise through the building and construction related courses available to us’.
Mullen himself is studying for a Masters in Energy Management at IT Sligo, as he feels that this is an area that Engineering Documentation could work with in the future.
