Derrywood Agencies celebrates 30th anniversary

Established in 1988 by the late Vincent Walsh, Derrywood Agencies & Distributors is still going strong three decades later thanks to excellent customer service and a commitment to supplying only the highest quality products.

A native of Galway, Vincent Walsh sadly passed away in late 2016. Glenn Hynes was appointed Managing Director and along with Vincent’s wife Margaret, was tasked with continuing the good work that Vincent started back in 1988. Renowned for its market- leading products, Derrywood Agencies continues to supply the industry with electrical products from some of the biggest names in the sector including Gewiss, One LED and Vinpower. To complement the company’s extensive range of lighting products, Derrywood also offers a free lighting design service for all projects and has worked on a variety of large schemes across the country to date including warehouses and shopping centres.

Derrywood Agencies supplies electrical wholesalers with the complete range of Gewiss Power Products which includes industrial plugs, sockets, enclosures, modular housing and flexible conduit. A respected global company, Gewiss is involved in the manufacture of systems and components for low voltage electrical installations. The company was established in the 1970s and remains one of the world’s leading electrical manufacturers. The base values for Gewiss are innovation, quality and research and these remain paramount for all company products today.

Derrywood’s relationship with Gewiss began 30 years ago and is something Glenn and the rest of the team are very proud about. “We’re delighted to be the sole Irish agent for the brand in the south of Ireland as we know our customers expect only the highest quality products from us,” said Glenn. Gewiss products are well known in the industry, not just for their durability and efficiency but also for their technical performance. “In the past couple of years, Gewiss launched a new innovative range of high powered plugs and sockets which we also supply. We’re delighted to be the sole Irish agent for the brand as we know our customers expect only the highest quality products from us.” Maintaining a well-stocked warehouse at all times means that Derrywood is capable of processing hundreds of orders throughout Ireland on a weekly basis. “As we celebrate 30 years in business, we’re also happy to announce that 2018 will see the launch of some exciting new products at Derrywood. We strive to offer the industry the very best product ranges available and we only put our name to products that we can stand by,” said Glenn.
