Harte Outdoor Lighting in New Ross has won the award for the South East Region at this year's National Enterprise Awards, organised by the Local Enterprise Offices to celebrate Ireland's best small businesses.
Harte Outdoor Lighting won part of a €40,000 investment fund for its business based at Butlersland business park.
The business was established in 1983 and currently employs 10 people. It has established itself as Ireland's only producer of high quality cast iron outdoor lighting, post boxes and street bollards.
The company has ambitions to dominate the Irish market, to gain an unrivalled reputation as a manufacturer of distinctive, robust, quality products in cast iron.
Pat Breen T.D., Minister for Trade, Employment, Business, EU Digital Single Market and Data Protection, made the announcement in front of 230 guests in the Mansion House in Dublin.
Congratulating the local winners, Tom Banville with Local Enterprise Office Wexford said: 'Harte Outdoor Lighting are very deserving winners of this year's Regional Enterprise Award and the team in Local Enterprise Office Wexford are very proud of their achievements.'
