Tony Duggan Branch Manager said; “We’re delighted to have been chosen as the National Award winners at the Octabuild Builders Merchants Awards. We’re just a small part of a bigger organization and it’s an honour to win this award. We enjoy great customer loyalty from the market, and we believe this is based on excellent customer service, comprehensive stocks, and competitive pricing. “

Chadwick’s parent company was first established in 1902, and is now part of the Grafton Group Plc. While benefiting from the advantages of being part of Irelands largest builders merchants, they are very much focused on serving the local market.

The award winners were announced at a presentation dinner on May 21st in the Round Room of the Mansion House in Dublin.

Introducing the awards Taoiseach Enda Kenny said; “Employment in the construction sector is up nearly 20,000 in the year reflecting a return to more sustainable levels.
