Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Yelo was delighted to win two of the Carrick Times Excellence in Business Awards categories for 2021

·      Excellence in Innovation

·       Best Export Award

Our purpose-built state-of-the-art factory based at Trooperslane Industrial Park has been designing, manufacturing, and growing local talent in the photonics industry in Carrickfergus since 1983.

Yelo is one of the world’s leading design and manufacturers of Photonics burn-in and life test equipment.  Our products are exported all over the world providing vital testing services to ensure that the internet works with no glitches!

We are honoured to have been chosen as one of the companies to receive a Carrick Business Excellence Award, so we are double delighted with picking up two! 

The past 18 months have been a difficult time in business.  The Yelo team travels all over the world to set up new systems and help our t customers find solutions to their problems.  Travelling hasn’t been an option in 2020/21 so our teams have been operating remote visits through Skype, Zoom, and Teams functions to meet our customers’ needs. Since March 2020 our staff have really stepped up and thought outside the box to complete tasks in different ways, operate a little bit differently to meet customers’ wants, and just really adapted to each situation to ensure Yelo keeps to deadlines and work schedules. We owe many thanks to our team continuing to work through these difficult times, adhering to new working regulations, and most importantly keeping themselves and their colleagues safe.

We would like to thank the Carrick Time Business Excellence Awards for organising this great event and celebrating businesses in the local area.
