Castlecool requalify as a Deloitte Best Managed Company 2012

By Andrew Shortt

For the third year running, Ireland’s largest independent temperature control and logistics firm, Castlecool has been recognised by Deloitte for excellence in business. Winner of a Deloitte Best Managed Company award in 2010, this is Castlecool’s second year to requalify and be recognised for superior business performance.

Speaking at the recent Deloitte Best Managed Companies awards 2012 ceremony in the Burlington Hotel in Dublin, Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton TD said,

“If we are to achieve the levels of employment and economic growth we so badly need, we must create a powerful engine of indigenous businesses.
The quality of management in Irish companies is an issue which can make a major difference to the performance of our indigenous businesses, but which has not been adequately targeted by recent governments. Through the Action Plan for Jobs we are determined to change this.
We will deliver a series of measures in 2012, including improved mentoring, €1.2million per annum in additional funding for management development networks and more businesses benefiting from management programmes. Today’s event shows what is possible in Irish businesses with proper management and I congratulate all involved.”

The Deloitte Best Managed Companies awards programme is open to companies from all 32 counties on the island of Ireland and is the only awards programme that considers business performance from every perspective.

“We are delighted to be recognised again this year by Deloitte for our performance, especially given another challenging year in business,” said Paul Shortt, managing director, Castlecool. “Our staff is our biggest asset and we thank our clients for enabling us to continue to innovate and improve our services for them and broaden our international reach in the supply chain industry.”

Founded by Paul Shortt eighteen years ago, Castlecool has a solid customer base in Ireland comprising of major food and beverage companies in the dairy and retail food sectors, North as well as South. Services range from temperature controlled warehousing through to distribution internationally.

The company currently has a warehousing capacity of 285,000 sq. ft. and 44, 500 pallet spaces, along with an extensive range of value added services such as order picking and management, blast freezing and material handling services.
