Suir Engineering People

According to Mick Kennedy, Managing Director, Suir Engineering, the keystone of Suir’s business success is its people.

“At Suir, every individual team member is valued, encouraged to embrace personal responsibility and supported to develop and maximise their potential.” Mick Kennedy comments. “Suir Engineering has a proud track record of retaining staff and cultivating our talent from apprentice to director. We are meticulous about the health and safety of our teams and support their ongoing professional development.”

Suir Engineering Clients

Suir Engineering views each client as a partner, and it views their projects, plans and goals as an extension of its own objectives.

Suir has adopted lean principles, the latest 3D modelling platforms and quality assurance and quality control (QAQC) systems into its operations, as well as having a state-of-the-art offsite fabrication facility.

Mick Kennedy adds: “Our ultimate goal is to help our clients’ businesses thrive. By doing this, we are securing the future vitality of our own business. We have invested in technology, control systems and offsite manufacturing facilities to ensure that we can deliver projects as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible.

“We have integrated digital construction technologies across our operations to facilitate the smooth delivery of projects. All of this has been done to ensure our clients can reach their specific goals, and this is what has placed us at the cutting edge of our sector at this exciting time.”

Health & Safety

Suir has also significantly reduced the volume of manhours on site, together with the reduction in manual handling and working at height activities, while enabling a decrease in site compound requirements and waste materials to landfill.

“These innovations have also had the benefit of driving continuous improvement across the company in safety, quality, employee job satisfaction and the reduction of our carbon footprint,” Mick Kennedy concludes.
