Lean on

200 years of expertise

Powered by Innovation

We operate Ireland’s largest and most advanced lime processing facilities, producing a wide range of specialist products for the agricultural, environmental, industrial and construction sectors. During the last two decades, with the support of CRH, our parent company, and in collaboration with our sister companies, we’ve been seeking to think differently about our purpose, solutions and services. We’ve put innovation at the forefront of what we do and how we do it.

As a result, we have developed a whole range of new lime-based solutions and grown our product offering from 2 in 1997 to over 15 today. Our logistics, technical support and customer service offerings are always evolving. Finding new ways to help our customer do what they do is a core part of what we do. Recent innovations include helping construction clients to dry and stabilise soil in harbour works.
