CIRTEX who were selected by the Longford Local Enterprise Office to represent the County, were winners at this year’s National Enterprise Awards. The awards, which took place at the Mansion House in Dublin, are in their 23rd year and run annually by the Local Enterprise Offices.

Cirtex, a relatively new company run by David Garland and Rick Earley specializes in the recycling of waste fabric material, especially mattresses. The company is located in Shroid where a dedicated manufacturing process reconstitutes waste foam for reuse by bedding companies or as a home insulation product.

Cirtex took home one of the major prizes on the night The Green/Sustainability Award in recognition of its efforts to reduce one of the major waste streams in the country greatly reducing the amount of mattresses that go to landfill. The company is committed to its circular economy business model where waste material is upcycled for reuse in new products and it continues to find new applications for its upcycled materials.

Michael Nevin of the Local Enterprise Office said that he was delighted that Cirtex was recognized on the night and it was a just reward for the two promoters who had seen opportunity in recycling and gone to great lengths designing and installing a production line that allows for the upcycling of very large volumes of waste fabric.

Paddy Mahon Chief Executive of Longford County Council who also attended the awards expressed his delight at the companies win and said it was great to have a Longford Company supporting our efforts to address the Climate Change Agenda. He added that the Circular Economy is set to become a cornerstone of business and community life in the near future and that Cirtex are pioneers in this space which should give them competitive advantage
