Close working relationships with their clients is a key consideration for J W Casey Construction Ltd. Managing Director John Casey was delighted with their success at last year’s John Sisk & Son Supply Chain Awards.

More than 500 guests gathered at the Burlington Hotel in Dublin for the prestigious black-tie John Sisk & Son Supply Chain Awards event ceremony on Thursday, November 29th last and J W Casey Construction were amongst the winners announced on the night.

Sisk spent a total of €1bn with its supply chain in 2018 while the construction business

also confirmed it has a total of 5,000 approved and active suppliers and subcontractors on its system.

Shortlisted subcontractors and suppliers were nominated by each of Sisk’s business units and procurement respectively. Each business Unit then selected its ‘Best Subcontractor of the Year’ from the proposed shortlist following a thorough evaluation process, with the winners announced at a ceremony in the Clayton Hotel, Burlington Road.

Commenting after the ceremony, Stephen Bowcott, CEO, John Sisk & Son, said: “The Sisk Supply Chain Awards for 2018 was a great success. It is great to see our team carry on the momentum of last year’s inaugural awards.

“The event was a fantastic opportunity to further build on the strong relationships we have with our Supply Chain partners across our business, and to recognise and acknowledge the excellent performance, commitment and dedication shown by our supply chain partners across Sisk projects.

“The Sisk Supply Chain Awards is one of the key initiatives that the business is undertaking towards delivering effective, lasting and mutually beneficial partnerships with our key stakeholders.

“On behalf of Sisk, I would like to congratulate all the winners and thank them for their support this year.”

The team at J W Casey Construction were popping the champagne corks on the night as they were unveiled as the Supply Chain Partner of the Year for Civils Ireland.

The ever burgeoning Dublin-based company is a customer focused family business driven by safety and quality. Managing Director John – who boasts 20 years plus experience in the building industry – believes that forming strong longstanding relationships with their clients and suppliers is the key to their continued growth.

They are proud of their mutually beneficial relationship with Sisk which stretches back 17 years.

“We were delighted to receive such a prestigious award,” John Casey said when reflecting on their win at the Sisk Supply Chain Awards. “We’ve been working with Sisk for 17 years now on different projects, such as the M7 Monastervin Bypass, the Fermoy Toll Plaza, the Luas Cross City and Greystones Harbour Marina and we have always maintained a close working relationship.

“We got through the recession (just about!) through our existing contact with Sisk. We were contracted to carry out all the reinforced concrete works on the final stage of the construction of a new wing at the Mater Hospital. It was a job that literally saved us during the recession.”

Thankfully, the building sector in Ireland is in a much better place these days and J W Casey Construction are busy enhancing their track record of delivering quality projects on time and within budget.

The progressive company currently has 65 employees on its weekly payroll, including John’s son Daniel who looks after the accounts, and that number is expected to grow considerably in the weeks and months ahead.

 “We have doubled our labour for in the last year, from 30 up to 65 and expect to reach 100 by the end of February,” John revealed. “Current projects we are working on in includes the new Childrens Hospital and an extension to the Sandyford Luas depot. Our motto is safety, quality and quantity.”
