Octabuild was established in 1984 with the objective of promoting the benefits of high quality, Irish manufactured products for the building, construction and DIY sectors. Ray Molyneaux, chairman of Octabuild said: “Octabuild companies are committed to excellence in providing an efficient and reliable service to builders merchants based on a core set of values, including innovation, leadership, sustainability and partnership. We are delighted to welcome Grant to join Dulux, Etex Ireland, Glennon Brothers, Gyproc, Irish Cement, Kingspan Insulation and Wavin Ireland in delivering on this mission into the future.”
Stephen Grant, founder of Grant, said: “We are delighted to join such an established and respected trade association as Octabuild. We have over four decades of knowledge, innovation and expertise in the heating industry, so joining the company of some of Ireland’s most trusted and innovative manufacturers was a natural move.
Collaborating with Octabuild will certainly enhance our relationship with the building trade so we are looking forward to the opportunity to celebrate the achievements of our top performing builders merchants in the 2022 Octabuild Awards for Excellence culminating in October.”
Over the past 40 years Grant has expanded its product portfolio to include a wide range of renewable heating technologies including Grant Aerona3 R32 air-to-water, air source heat pumps, Grant Sahara solar thermal panels, Grant Uflex underfloor heating, Grant integrated units and pre-plumbed hot water cylinders, Grant Afinia aluminium radiators, and Grant Spira condensing wood pellet boilers.
The company has also invested over €250,000 in R&D to ensure its Grant Vortex and Euroflame ranges of condensing oil boilers are HVO biofuel compatible. Niall Fay, director at Grant added: “One of the key motivators for us becoming a member of Octabuild was the organisation’s commitment to promoting sustainability in the building industry. We look forward to working together with them, to educate builders merchants and their customers on the benefits of clean energy heating solutions that can deliver a fully decarbonised, resource efficient home heating with long term cost savings.”
