For over fifty years Kilsaran International, a family owned and run business, has been synonymous with innovative concrete and asphalt products and award-winning design in Ireland and the United Kingdom.
This family-owned and run business is quite literally Irish from the ground up, mining raw materials from its own quarries and manufacturing end products at its various manufacturing plants across Ireland.
Kilsaran specializes in making superior quality paving and walling, road surfacing materials, precast concrete, pre-mixed dry mortars, renders, screeds and, of course, ready-mixed concrete and blocks.
The supply of standard, unique and bespoke product solutions to both the commercial and domestic market is centred on a continual commitment to manufacturing excellence and technical expertise. At Kilsaran, we are trusted by businesses and contractors alike to produce quality construction materials that are fundamental in the creation of our national infrastructure, including large commercial buildings, domestic and agricultural construction, office blocks and major road networks.
Proud to be a member of the Guaranteed Irish family of brands, the Kilsaran Group currently employs more than 500 people at numerous locations around the country. Guaranteed Irish is a not-for-profit business membership organisation representing businesses in Ireland since 1974.
Guaranteed Irish is the original symbol of provenance in business in Ireland. Our members span all sectors including pharmaceutical, healthcare, technology, construction, energy, professional services, tourism, food and drink, art and design, retail & more. We award the Guaranteed Irish symbol to indigenous and international companies operating in Ireland which provide quality jobs, support local communities and are committed to Irish provenance. When assessing an applicant for membership, we look at three core criteria; jobs, community & provenance.
Beginning as a campaign ran by the Irish Goods Council in December 1974, Guaranteed Irish became an independent non-profit organisation in 1984 and was launched by President Patrick Hillery. Over four decades, the Guaranteed Irish symbol has become one of the most recognised symbols in the country. In 2017, Guaranteed Irish was rebranded and relaunched by An Taoiseach, Mr. Enda Kenny, T.D., with the original logo from the campaign’s inception. Led by CEO, Brid O’Connell, and a new Board of Directors and team, the organisation repositioned by opening up membership to international companies operating in Ireland.
Our member companies now directly employ 120,000+ people in Ireland and generate a turnover of €11.2bn here. Globally, these companies generate a turnover of €29.7bn. Currently, 46% of the members export, primarily to the UK, US and mainland Europe.
With 1,900+ members and growing, we believe that we are #AllTogetherBetter.
