The specification of Marco’s uPVC trunking and steel wire cable tray products is gathering pace in Ireland as another of the country’s leading contractors make the switch.
Kildare-based Cloncad has recently utilised Marco’s Elite trunking as part of a renovation at its own head offices and has been incredibly pleased with the results. Heather O’Brien, Operations Manager at Cloncad, said, “We’ve not worked with Marco products in the past as they haven’t necessarily had the same exposure here that they’ve had in the UK. We’ve recently met with the firm’s Irish representatives who showed us their product range and we’ve been very impressed.
“In fact, we’ve now used their products as part of our own renovation works. Our site guys were pleased with both the quality and the handling of the trunking as part of the installation, whilst we’ve all been impressed by the finish and final appearance. As a growing business, our need to partner with quality manufacturers becomes increasingly important. We’ve recently secured a number of large healthcare and education projects and are set to use Marco products, utilising their antimicrobial specification for the hospital schemes and trunking, including floor boxes, for the university projects.”
Gareth Howes, Area Sales Manager for Unistrut & Marco Cable Management, added, “It’s fantastic to be able to spread the Marco message with confidence across Ireland. Increasing awareness of the range and meeting new contractors is certainly opening new doors as more and more customers become switched onto the Marco brand.”
APOLLO MAKES THE GRADE AT LEO
Marco’s Apollo trunking with a light grey lid has been the specification of choice as part of the development of Lisburn Enterprise Organisation (LEO). The Irish not-for-profit business advisory and training organisation continues to develop its business incubator in Lisburn. This latest move sees the LEO create yet more space, offering flexible offices to local businesses, individuals and enterprises. Contractor James Haughey managed the electrical works, opting for Marco’s Apollo trunking to house the installation.
Gareth Howes added, “Marco as a brand and its core products of steel wire cable tray and uPVC trunking are really gathering momentum in Northern Ireland with more and more contractors increasingly tuned into the many benefits our products offer.
“Apollo trunking is available in three profiles, dado, skirting and square and is designed to accommodate a broad range of installations and perhaps most importantly, it’s incredibly flexible. The contractor at this scheme has opted for Marco on several schemes within Ireland and we continue to enjoy positive feedback in terms of our products and their performance as well as the wider customer service experience.”
