In November, Seán Doyle Painting Contractors Ltd picked up the award for Supply Chain Partner of the Year for Ireland East at the 2018 Sisk Supply Chain in Dublin. Building Ireland learned more about the thriving company, as well as its recent success, from Contracts Director Patrick Laffan.
Based in Gorey, Co Wexford, Seán Doyle Painting Contractors Ltd has now surpassed 30 years since its inception and, according to its Contracts Director, Patrick Laffan, business is booming at the present time.
The company employs in excess of 80 staff and has similar numbers and an office set-up in the UK six years now, having developed into Ireland’s leading painting contractor prior to successfully expanding into the British market.
With another office based in Tallaght, Co Dublin, Seán Doyle Painting Contractors possess the experience of working at the highest level in the construction industry, aligned with the knowledge and expertise which stretches across all sectors.
They provide their clients the very best in all services with a projects division specialising in flooring and specialist finishes.
Patrick Laffan has been part of the team for 19 years now and took some time towards the end of 2018 to tell Building Ireland all about the state of business throughout the year, along with the award received in late November.
“Our primary market would be new builds in the commercial sector,” outlined Patrick.
“We’ve also set-up a flooring division for pharmaceutical labs and Sisk would be our main client in Ireland. We have done a lot of their larger projects and this past year, in particular, we’ve been completing work for them on Capital Dock which is one of the biggest projects in the country at the moment.”
Indeed, Seán Doyle Painting Contractors are now renowned as the number one choice for high quality painting solutions in Ireland and the UK.
High-end internal and external painting solutions for large scale projects are provided for clients across all sectors.
The company also offers consultation and advice on product choice and best-value alternatives for case specific needs, including sustainable and environmentally friendly options.
Clients can rest assured knowing that Seán Doyle Painting Contractors has the resources and management capability to deliver high-end, high volume projects, and have earned the reputation for delivering the highest standard of finish within set timescales, on every project – on time, every time.
It’s little wonder why a mega construction firm such as John Sisk & Son have continued to choose Seán Doyle Painting Contractors first ahead of other competitors in the same industry.
According to Patrick, the relationship built up over the years is currently as strong as ever as both companies look forward to more projects together for the New Year ahead.
“I think with Sisk we’ve established a relationship and support the Health & Safety standards that they look for,” he said.
“A lot of projects have tight deadlines and we make sure to get the job done on time, every time. Our guys on site have a great working relationship with the Sisk management team, delivering the project on the ground.
“I think that’s where the success is coming from and hopefully that will continue year on year.”
The Contracts Director continued: “Obviously, we’re looking forward to 2019 with Sisk. We’ve worked with a lot of the same directors and site teams at Sisk for many years now, they’ve been our mainstay client through what was a tough recession for this country.”
The company’s mission is to deliver a high standard of finish on time every time, in the most professional, safe and efficient manner.
Needless to say, Health & Safety is the number one priority with each and every project undertaken by Seán Doyle Painting Contractors.
They recognize health and safety as being fundamental and ensure compliance with the most up-to-date codes of practice, regulations and health and safety legislation.
The company has earned the reputation for delivering professional, safe, efficient and reliable painting, specialist finishes and flooring services.
Nothing illustrated this more than when the firm were crowned proud winners of the 2018 John Sisk & Son Supply Chain Partner of the Year Award for Ireland East, recognising and valuing the importance of having industry leading supply chain partners.
Sisk spent €1bn in total in 2018 with its supply chain and also confirmed at the awards night that it has a total of 5,000 approved and active suppliers and subcontractors on its system.
Approximately 500 attended the awards on the night, with Irish comedian Colm O’Regan the Master of Ceremonies.
“The awards were presented in the Burlington Hotel in Dublin on November 29th,” said Patrick.
“It was an honour just to be nominated but it was such a huge bonus when our name was called out. We were very honoured to be in such elite company, so it was an absolute shock to have our name called out and a great honour obviously too.”
It seems the good times keep on rolling for Seán Doyle Painting Contractors, particularly when you consider the successful expansion the company has had into the UK market in the short space of six years.
The year ahead promises to be another busy one with their excellent service now in demand from so many high-profile clients across Ireland and the UK.
