Our thoughts on what it means to be a Guaranteed Irish company
As we are (hopefully) coming out the other side of the pandemic, we’ve been reflecting on what it means to be a homegrown Irish Company.
The community spirit shown by the people of Ireland throughout the pandemic was so heart-warming, not least the support shown to Irish businesses such as our own.
Over the past 18 months, we’ve kept the wheels turning in our Glasnevin, Dublin factory as restrictions permitted and therefore continued to employ our valued team and serve our beloved community – who took to home renovations with a renewed sense of passion!
In truth, we’ve been busier than ever. This is partly a reflection of the re-invigorated appetite for home improvements, and partly a reflection of the widespread shift in buying habits of Irish consumers, who are now prioritising local goods and services and ‘Buying Irish’ with renewed fervour. The trust in Global’s brand that has been built over the past 40 years and our Irish manufactured product has resonated with our customer base more than ever.
Since 1980, we have served Dublin and surrounding counties with an inherent passion for quality products, installation, and customer service. Our team of specialists has completed a significant portfolio of installations across our windows, doors, roofline and flat roofing offering, earning Global Home Improvements a 5* service rating with our customers in independent reviews. This is something we don’t take lightly, and we are committed to working hard to continue to delight our customers.
We’ve always been extremely proud to be an Irish company and as one of the only home improvement companies to still manufacture uPVC windows and doors in Dublin, we can stand firmly behind our made-to-measure home improvement solutions.
The combined experience across our team is vast. Several team members have been with us from the beginning back in 1980 when Tom Shevlin first opened Global’s doors, and in this industry, experience really counts. Now a second-generation family business, headed up by Barry Shevlin, Global’s growing team of professionals includes a dedicated in-house technical team, who ensures all designs, specifications and compliance with regulations meet and exceed the highest standard. It is without doubt our people who elevate our unique service offering and these people in turn support other local jobs in our communities to help Ireland build a sustainable local economy for the future.
As a Guaranteed Irish business, we’re proud to carry the national symbol of trust in business in Ireland and are committed to providing quality jobs in the local community and to serve both our loyal and new customer base with the highest standards of products and service for which we have become renowned.
