A relatively young company, building specialist MARTIN has made quite a name for itself in both the UK and Irish construction industry since setting up in 2007. The company was established by Wissie Martin who’s life-long experience in the construction sector meant he was well placed to venture out on his own and create the ‘MARTIN’ brand. Initially known as MARTIN CSL, MARTIN switched its focus from hard landscaping and civils to building and since then, has expanded into sectors including automotive, commercial building, tourism and infrastructure. This growth has also allowed the firm to enter other regional markets including Aberdeen, Glasgow, Manchester, Sheffield and London.
The company ethos at MARTIN is all about client satisfaction; ensuring clients are happy with the service they receive at MARTIN is crucial when it comes to maintaining sound relationships and repeat business. Developing and nurturing the needs and skills of staff has also been key to building a successful team at MARTIN. With 25 members of staff, the company plans to further expand its numbers to capitalise on the diverse range of projects it currently has in the pipeline.
Repeat business and an established presence in the automotive sector has led to a larger project portfolio which, says Director Katie Martin, continues to increase to this day. Describing itself as a small company with big ambitions, MARTIN is ISO accredited and is about to implement its own Right-Way Safety initiative. The health and wellbeing of its staff as well as those impacted by its operations are at the heart of everything MARTIN does.
Thanks to this continued growth, the company plans to move into a new state-of-the-art premises which is, says Managing Director Michael Scullion, a reflection of this forward-thinking business.
