Dublin, Eire – Firesafe Fire Rated Ductwork Ltd (FFRDL) Technical Manager, Darren Webster, recently visited Sweeney Sheet Metal Ltd (SSM) to undertake a compliance visit; a pre-requisite, bi-annual quality management commitment made by all our Licensed Manufacturing Partners.

SSM is a family-owned and operated business run by Managing Director, Ian Sweeney and his brother and fellow Director, Bernard. The company was set up by their father, Bernard Sweeney Snr, in 1962 and has worked on many of the largest HVAC installations in Ireland.

It was not all paperwork and checklists, however. SSM’s 10-year Partnership with FFRDL and recent agreement renewal were definitely worth marking with a couple of official certificates; with Ian and Darren doing the honours for the camera.

Since 2007, SSM have produced CASWELL FIRESAFE® non-coated, fire-resisting ductwork in Dublin for the Eire market. This localisation strategy has been intrinsic to the FFRDL business model – maybe prophetically – for over a decade before any B-word issues (Brexit / Backstop) arose.
