Following on from their successful involvement in Electric Picnic 2009, industry leading timber processors, Glennon Brothers (www.glennonbrothers.ie), again highlighted the innovative uses of Irish Timber at the recent Electric Picnic Music & Arts festival (www.electricpicnic.ie).
THE RAPID downturn in the Irish construction industry was the catalyst for timber-processing firm Glennon Brothers to make a profitable entry to the French market this year.
Mike and Pat Glennon of Timber processing firm, Glennon Brothers, are among the 24 shortlisted finalists for the coveted 2010 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year® award. The Irish programme, now in its 13th year, has been identified as one of the strongest worldwide and received over 120 nominations, a reflection of the strength of the enterprise culture that exists today.
