Dublin’s Building Division on the move

This unit will facilitate the distribution from our Dublin branch with 50,0000 sq ft. of warehouse and substantial yardage.  This represents over double the capacity of our existing unit in Western Industrial Estate!!

In addition, Airton Road is perfectly situated on the M50, N7 & N8 corridors, giving access to all major national routes as well as Dublin City Centre.

TBP are excited about the prospects for growth that this new unit makes possible, along with the benefit of additional efficiency for both goods-in and trade counter sales and distribution.

This is a fitting development as TBP celebrate 20 years in the South of Ireland this year since they set up their first small depot in Oak Court in Dublin.

There have been many highs and lows in the construction industry in Ireland throughout this period and Tennants have had to rely on all of their experience to trade through some very difficult times.

This new unit is testament to the hard work and vision of all of the management and staff at the Building Division.
