Our company was established in 1972 when our founder Robert (Bobby) Quinn, took the first step towards building his own construction business in Carlow. A skilled carpenter, he set up as a sole trader initially before working with and employing excellent tradesmen throughout the country.
Robert liked things done correctly - safety and quality were always number one on his agenda. His management skills developed quickly, and he was soon completing projects for Braun Oral B, Lapple, Health Service Executive and nationwide projects for the Bank of Ireland.
The company grew from strength to strength and Robert Quinn Ltd quickly became a trusted company for its quality workmanship and the ethos of safety, quality, dependability and efficiency was founded.
Over the past number of decades the company has evolved significantly from an initial turnover of £10,000 pa in 1972. Bobby’s ethos at the very beginning was to deliver good quality work within programme. This ethos still rings true today. Robert Quinn Ltd is now in its second generation and is led by Michael Quinn. Michael took over as Managing Director in 2012 and continues to grow and expand the business stating;
“Our ethos has served us very well over the past number of decades with a large portion of our business being repeat business from our valued clients, to whom we are most grateful, for their continuing support over the years. Their loyalty is testament to our work ethos and our professionalism, highlighting our dependability and trustworthiness.”
