When Niall Gaffney and his wife, Deirdre, set up their business ‘Niall Gaffney Heating & Plumbing’ from their Kells, Co. Meath home in 1999, they could not have envisaged the growth and success that lay ahead. Working from the kitchen table in the early days, Deirdre steered the finance and business admin while Niall began building the firm’s fine reputation from the ground up, helped by a single apprentice.
Their hard work led to growth and in 2016, they set up a hub in Ballycoolin, Dublin 15 and rebranded as Gaffney Mechanical. Soon after they moved to bigger and better offices in the nearby Rosemount Business Park, Dublin 11 and they’re now one of the industry’s best known and most respected providers of quality mechanical engineering and maintenance services in Dublin and the North East.
Gaffney Mechanical is a major employer in the area with 130 staff, and growing, currently expanding their office capacity to facilitate that ever-expanding workforce.
And, as we wave goodbye to the strangest of years that was 2020 – Gaffney Mechanical greets the New Year with a reenergised brand logo and message, marking another important milestone in its success story. As Niall says, “We thought it was time to mark a change heading into 2021 at the end of 21 years trading. Our business has grown and developed into a modern, innovative, progressive and diverse organisation that has embraced new ways of working and new technologies. We wanted a sleek, contemporary design with our new logo to reflect our business in this modern age.”
Gaffney Mechanical’s continuous development and investment in their people and their processes deserves to be commended and this is what has enabled them to deliver excellence to their growing client list. Long-standing existing clients continue to return for their tried and trusted high levels of delivery and after service. This combination has been a key factor to their consistent progress and sustained growth.
“We understand the industry’s need for flexibility, expertise and experience and we believe in delivering real world engineering solutions,” says Niall. Gaffney Mechanical have vast experience in a variety of contracts both in residential and industrial sectors. Through their team of skilled professionals, they provide a range of mechanical and electrical engineering services that include, heating, water services, gas, ventilation and waste service installations and maintenance.
Gaffney Mechanical work with main contractors, direct client contracts and through third parties. The firm provides quality installations along with experienced management teams and expertise delivering a wide range of complex mechanical engineering projects in sectors such as commercial, education, healthcare, hotel and leisure, public sector and residential.
Gaffney Mechanical also undertakes planned maintenance works for a wide variety of clients across a range of sectors. Planned maintenance prevents and reduces the risk of major plant failures thereby reducing the risk of loss to business. Planned maintenance ensures optimum plant efficiency while also reducing energy consumption.
On going maintenance of mechanical and electrical plant items is also fundamental to meeting owners and occupiers’ legal responsibilities. At Gaffney Mechanical, they offer a 24/7 call out service. We undertake maintenance works for a wide variety of clients across many industry sectors including commercial, education, healthcare, hotel & leisure, public sector and residential. Their industry knowledge and experience ensure that clients trust Gaffney Mechanical to deliver a comprehensive service which is non-invasive to the day-to-day operation of their business.
Niall says, “We are continuously evaluating new products, technologies, and innovative solutions so we can exceed client expectations while delivering quality and value. We strive to not only complete our client’s projects in a timely and cost-effective manner, but we also aim to build a relationship with them that is based on mutual trust and respect. In our experience, honest and open lines of communication lead to more seamless workflows and higher outputs, which is beneficial to both client and contractor.
“We implement a strict Quality Assurance System that all our teams adhere to and we ensure that our clients internal needs are captured within our work systems and that Quality, Reliability and Performance are maintained throughout the duration of any project undertaken by us. Copies of our tailored Quality Plans are issued prior to works commencement on all sites. “We have just recently been ISO 9000 approved and are happy to meet with and exceed the expectations of our customers and the ISO 9000 requirements as seal of approval on our business.”
A remarkable achievement for this home-grown operation and one that will help propel Gaffney Mechanical forward to another 21 years of success.
Niall Gaffney says, “When we outlined our brief to the designer the rationale that was presented to us was to use an amended version of a typeface that is inspired by first century Roman inscriptions and based on classical proportions.
“We felt that this was appropriate as we are in the construction industry and it conveys all the history and strength associated with the Roman Empire – but it also merges with a contemporary feel.
“We loved the simplicity and lightness in the colour used and contrast of the dots against the strong typeface. The dots represent energy and movement, which fits our business model well. We are happy with the new design and think it represents us well.”
