Whitewater has scooped the top ActionCOACH Business Excellence Award for 2012 and received the Best Service Award as well. They have now been entered for the European Awards for Best Service Based Company which will be judged in Lisbon, Portugal in Early February, 2013.
Mark Keating, Executive Director and Tim Quinn, Managing Director receive the double awards for the company.
Whitewater, which has grown by over twenty per cent over the past year plans to double business again over the next three years. The Blackrock, Co Dublin-based firm led by Mark Keating and Tim Quinn, is also a step closer to its ultimate goal of helping developing countries access clean water.
“We are the leading provider of water treatment solutions to medical facilities in Ireland but we were not hitting our full potential until we started to really look at our strategies for sales and growth. We now have a more focused sales and service team that has helped grow our business by over 20 per cent in this year alone. We’ve increased our staff and plan to double the business within the next three years,” explained Executive Director Mark Keating.
“It is great to be recognised for the quality of our business and in particular the service side of the business where we are working hard to support our customers,”
“Our ultimate goal is to be in a position where we can also provide aid and assistance to developing countries- especially in the area of water treatment. That is the legacy we really want to leave behind,” Mark added.
