Enterprise Ireland Programmes

Enterprise Ireland Programmes

Preferred Results is a business improvement and turnaround company.

Having undertaken projects internationally for both International Clients and Irish Subsidiaries, and having worked extensively with a range of companies exporting out of Ireland, we are keenly aware of the additional layers of risk and requirements which need to be carefully managed by companies operating in the exporting sector.

In providing services to the sector, we work closely with Enterprise Ireland, the state agency responsible for supporting the development of manufacturing and internationally traded services companies. A manifestation of this relationship is the inclusion of Preferred Results Ltd. on the Enterprise Ireland Directory of Service Providers which means that it can be used by Enterprise Ireland Clients to deliver a range of grant-aided programmes, including:

  • Lean Start
  • Lean Improve
  • Lean Transform
