Project knowledge and expertise is at the heart of Core Solutions

Meet the expert team delivering intelligent electrical solutions across Ireland and Northern Ireland

Core – known within the wholesale world for the distribution of market leading brands – has recently restructured the company to create a new division called Core Solutions. While Core Distribution remains responsible for the development of wholesale brands such as Marshall- Tufflex, Airflow and Basor, this will be complemented by the system-based, engineered solutions offered by Core Solutions. Core Solutions offers turnkey solutions that incorporates services ranging from advice, consultation and design through to the supply and commissioning of turnkey projects with modular wiring, DALI/ Lon/KNX lighting control systems and underfloor to desk power solutions.

Core’s relationship with world-class suppliers is matched by a talented, knowledgeable and dedicated team offering power, data and lighting solutions for smart, energy efficient buildings. This has already proved to be a success on a wide range of major projects, ranging from hyperscale data centres, intelligent office space, commercial buildings, factories and many more.

Working closely with architects, consultants, contractors and furniture manufacturers to ensure we meet required electrical regulations but also meet the practical requirements of each project. “I’ve been in the industry for 18 years and have worked with our two main suppliers, CMD Ltd and Cableduct for most of that time. Having the connection with these manufacturers is crucial to our success.”

Jay ByrneModular Wiring, Flat Cable and Lighting Controls Solution Manager
With previous experience working as an electrical contractor, in the electrical wholesale sector and also in a more technical role for a manufacturer, Jay has gained the ability to look at issues from different perspectives. “I design solutions that are quicker and easier to install for contractors. On a specifier’s point of view you’re looking for flexibility which will future-proof a building. We have plug-and-play solutions that are perfect for this. And with our lighting controls, operability is key to ensure compatibility with other systems.” His focus is to deliver solutions that are highly-efficient, to install – allowing for project acceleration, and also energy-efficiency in operation. “I look for the best fit for a project, both now and in the future, and for all parties involved – specifier, contractor and client. We start at the design stage.”
