Celebrating Almost 30 Years

In 2014, we had a bid staff reunion to celebrate our 25 years in business and we had a ball. Now, we are looking forward to our 30th Anniversary in 2019. Don’t we still look so young and fresh? Throughout that time, we have always strived to be the best in the business. We may not have always made it but, boy, did we try. We have enjoyed meeting and looking after many lovely people (and a few not so nice) but overall it has been a blast. The time flew and it is hard to believe we are ageing so well.

We have learned a lot, matured a bit but mostly, we have honed our skills and consider ourselves an oasis of client care and consideration, in an industry ruined by low-cost and low-client-esteem. Some say we are a “dinoasour” in an online world (where nobody wants to talk to anybody any more) but our clients don’t seem to agree and as long as courtesy, respect and efficiency are valued, we’ll be around.

We started in a very small office in Earlsfort Terrace in 1989, then moved a few times before settling down in Sandyford. We have enjoyed the company of many young, enthustiastic and vibrant people among our staff. We have had every kind of person on the payroll over those years. They all worked hard though. We had some good days and some tough days but after almost 30 years we are still prospering, despite the worst recession ever seen in Ireland, in recent years. We have seen many good, professional competitors close up and even a few, sadly, have passed away. Looks like we’ll be around for another 30 years though.

If you are one of the many people who have worked with us in the past 30 years, we would like to hear from you. Hear your story since and hopefully arrange a get-together sometime soon.
