For more than a quarter of a century the name of Grayton has been associated with maintenance and fabrication involving blue chip clients around the country. Building on our core expertise in the cement industry, we developed by providing our services and proving ourselves to other industries. We have steadily grown our client footprint by establishing sustainable relationships with major companies in chemicals, steelmaking, oil, and other sectors.
It hasn’t all be straightforward; it would be wrong to say it had. Changes in ownership over the years brought us to the position, in November 2016, where our current MD Peter O’Sullivan was able to buy the company. He takes up our story: “I started with this company over 25 years ago, and I believe in it; over a year ago I believed it had a sustainable future, and I’m even more certain of it today. We are making a success of it because of the relationships we have with our clients, who trust us to deliver what we promise. We have the skills, and our track record proves that.
“We build relationships with our clients, who have absolute confidence to know that if we take on a job, we will not only complete it, but do so to the highest standards of quality and safety. That’s the way we all think, and it delivers results. We are able to point to completed contracts involving 100,000 man-hours with no injuries.
“We don’t work for all these blue chip companies because of luck. We’re well known; because in everything we’ve been through and done we’ve earned an enviable reputation. That’s no fluke. It’s a testament to our people, and it’s the way we’ll continue to grow.”
