Wrights first began supplying material to the construction industry in 1949, the primary product being quarried stone. The company soon gained a reputation for quality of both product and service. Subsequently in 1975, Wrights expanded into the supply of Ready-mix Concrete. Just over ten years later, a precast production line was introduced, paving the way for a host of new products the company could perfect.
Year-on-year, the product range increased and the company expanded into new geographical markets and new construction sectors. In 2001, Wrights introduced a new precast concrete flooring system specifically designed for the residential market, SpanWright™. The flooring system was unprecedented in the Republic of Ireland and demand soon led to further expansion. In 2005, a purpose-built factory was opened in Carrickmacross, Co. Monaghan reaffirming the company’s position as a leading supplier of precast concrete products to the Irish and UK construction market.
The increasing demand for off-site, concrete solutions continued to spawn new products and systems within the Wright product range. The ongoing and increasing skills shortage and housing crisis inspired a new way of thinking – the company began developing advanced concrete technology. Now patent protected, the BuildWright™ system was born and successfully launched to the market in 2018.
