This month Fosroc is celebrating a 50-year milestone in providing solutions to the Irish construction industry, with product sales dating back to 1971. As a global manufacturer of high-performance chemicals, Fosroc supplies a broad range of specialist building products with a focus on concrete and cement.
As sales flourished in Ireland during the 70s, Fosroc established an Irish-based salesforce. The importance of location-specific knowledge and high availability for site inspections was recognised to ensure clients in Ireland and Northern Ireland received the highest standard of service in terms of technical product expertise, training and supply turnaround. This localised approach proved to be much more beneficial for clients.
Fosroc has been involved in many successful Irish projects over the years, with products used for industrial, public and commercial constructions, major transportation and utilities infrastructure. Examples of recent build projects in Ireland where Fosroc products were used include Dublin Airport, Luas, Aviva Stadium, Downpatrick Racecourse (Resin floors), Ballymena Housing Authority, Stormont Wharf and Hawlbowline Jetty (Dry Spray Concrete), Ardnacrusha Dam and Parteen weir in Tipperary.
Fosroc still works closely with its Irish distributor network, including key partners Anchor Bay Construction Accessories, MacNaughton Blair, Murdock Civils and Total Pipeline Specialists. Products are regularly shipped every week from the UK mainland to keep stocks ready and available. Investment in R&D continues to set Fosroc products apart from competitors, both in Ireland and the wider global market.
Fosroc’s tailored construction solutions are developed, combining its extensive range of products with expertise and experience to meet the needs of the construction industry. Solutions include concrete admixtures, concrete repair and refurbishment, waterproofing, joint sealants, protective coatings, grouts & anchors, industrial flooring and cement additives.
