30 Years Anniversary
In 2015 Euro Gas Ltd will proudly celebrate its first 30 years in business. The company was founded by Pat Curran in 1985 and had its humble beginnings in a 20 M² office in Bray, Co Wicklow where we had the agency for Schwank Radiant tube heaters.
1987 was a major milestone for the company when, on recognizing each other’s potential, Euro Gas and Rendamax signed an exclusive agency agreement for the supply of the Rendamax range of market leading High efficiency boilers and water heaters. Indeed Euro Gas Ltd were supplying condensing boilers into Ireland while others were still marketing standard efficiency cast iron boilers.
In 1988 Des Prendergast joined Pat and together they laid the foundations to what was to become one of the leading Mechanical Services Suppliers in the island of Ireland.
In 1990 Des took over as Managing Director and set about the task of building a formidable management team.
Through the years other leading manufacturers were added to the portfolio with the criteria that they had to be the best in their field and add to the growing reputation of this young company. Reznor, Remeha, Lochinvar, Cochran, A1 Flues, Niche, Envirotec and Gilles biomass boilers all joining forces to make a stable of products second to none in Ireland.
In the late nineties, Martin Garvey joined as Sales Director and Jimmy Sadlier as Financial Director giving the company the broad range of technical and financial experience necessary to achieve its key objectives.
The company’s objective has always been to become the leading supplier of quality Hot Water, Heating and Ventilating equipment to the Mechanical Services Industry. It recognised that it could only achieve this by offering a dedicated quality service of commitment and loyalty to its customers.
From the outset, Euro Gas Ltd recognised its customers to be the Mechanical Consultants and Contractors of Ireland. The company’s objective has been achieved through a “hands on approach” in the provision of technical excellence in advice, product and technical solutions to its customers.
The company remained steadfast in its commitment to quality service. It has continuously recruited technically experienced and customer focussed personnel as well as developing its own young dynamic sales and service team. It has kept to its core principals and remained a niche supplier to the industry, resisting the temptation to be multiple supplier to all segments of the industry.
In 1999 we formed a sister company Pak Plant Ltd. under the stewardship of Denis O’Keeffe. Here we design and build packaged solutions for the building services and have a wide portfolio of completed projects in both Ireland and the U.K.
Both the construction industry and Euro Gas Ltd. have now successfully emerged from the traumatic recession owing much to the loyal commitment from its contracting and consulting customers.
In 2013, Martin took over as Managing Director from Des and is now leading the company as the industry finally again shows green shoots. The ethos of operation has not changed with all the old values still in place. The product portfolio was again expanded and Dunham Bush, Frese, Hidros, Spirotech and Cordivari added to offer a one stop solution to the niche requirements of our customers.
In May 2014, the company acquired Sermet (N.I.) Ltd to strengthen its position in the Northern Ireland market.
The company would like to thank its customers, suppliers and loyal staff for its success over the past 30 years and looks forward to building a successful future together in the coming years.
