Timber processing firm Glennon Brothers could be set to add another title to their growing list of commercial accolades over the coming days, this time under the workings of the European Business Awards.

The 2010 Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year nominees have been selected as a national finalist as part of the organisation’s 2012/13 programme.

Headed by local brothers, Mike and Pat Glennon, the Longford town based outfit beat off a host of rival businesses to land the much sought after nomination.

“We’re delighted to have been selected as a National Finalist,” said a delighted Mike Glennon. “This selection is a testament to our hard working and dedicated team, who have faced enormous challenges over the last few years, and have worked hard to find innovative solutions. As we look forward to marking 100 years in business in 2013, it’s an honour for our team to be recognised in these awards.”

In recent years, the European Business Awards has honoured some of Europe’s fastest emerging organisations.

Now the hunt is very much on for this year’s outstanding candidate, a feat which will see the winning firm battle it out with competing businesses from across Europe for the top honour.

“Over the past six years we’ve received an incredibly high standard of entries from organisations that are passionate about their business,” said Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards. “However, very few get the chance to fly the flag for their country and compete across Europe to be recognised as one of Europe’s leading companies. It really is an exceptional accolade to be picked as a National Finalist, and together with our sponsors and supporters we’re looking forward to seeing Glennon Brothers in the next round.”

Final category award winners are not expected to be unveiled until April 2013.
