The Tipperary-headquartered company achieved the certification for its Horizon Offsite Steel Frame Building System.

Managing director Ger Fahey received the certificate of accreditation from Minister for Trade, Business & Employment Pat Breen at a ceremony hosted by the National Standards Authority of Ireland earlier this month.

Opening the ceremony, Minister Breen acknowledged the commitment of awardees to innovation and emphasised the importance of improvement through standards by stating, "if companies do not become certified to standards, they will evaporate".

Ger Fahey, managing director, said: "Getting the NSAI accreditation has driven Horizon Offsite to the next level, enabling us to take a position of leadership within this industry, at a particularly crucial time for construction in Ireland.

"Having a fully tested, accredited system is important for us, however it is even more important for the design team and clients for whom we work.

"They have the certainty that our Horizon Offsite Steel Frame Building System has achieved a standard of excellence up to six storeys and, significantly, it will be accredited to 10 storeys from the beginning of 2020."

The team at Horizon Offsite Ltd provides structural light gauge steel (LGS) building systems that enable rapid build of structures up to six storeys in height.

The facility in Cahir currently has the capacity to produce in excess of 2,000 units per year and the pipeline of work for 2020 has increased across both the Irish and UK markets.
