A COLLOONEY company is in line for a National Enterprise Award.
Inland Inflatable Services has been selected as the winner of the Sligo County Enterprise Board accolade.
The company now competes on the national stage in Dublin on November 14th.
IIS is a leading centre for the design, manufacture, maintenance and repair of rigid inflatable boats or ribs.
The business was set up by Ronan Keys in 2002.
It employs five full-time staff and one part-time worker.
IIS recently developed a new rib-the 'Swift Rescue Kraft'- highly innovative in design and particularly useful in inland and coastal water search and rescue.
Owner/ Manager, Ronan said: "We're delighted to be Sligo's representative in the National Enterprise Awards.
"Sligo County Enterprise worked with us since we began.
"The Board provided us with funding to help get off the ground and assisted with our expansion when we moved to our current premises."
