GEORGE QUINN LTD – BESPOKE DESIGNS
“At George Quinn Ltd, we supply stair parts to the leading staircase manufacturers in Ireland” explains Vincent Murphy, sales representative for the company.
He continues, “Not only do we maintain large stocks of our own designs such as the Matrix metal spindles, and the Milano twist spindles but we also collaborate closely with our customers to help them bring to reality specific staircase ideas for their clients such as architects, builders and homeowners”.
The company can offer these high value services due to continuous investment in the latest 7 axis CNC machinery. This allows the use of CAD drawings either supplied by the customer or drawn up by our team. This technology enables us to manufacture bespoke designs for not only the construction sector but also for the furniture sector such as hotel and bar fit out. One such project was for our joinery customer, Southwood Manufacturers Ltd. The Cork based joinery had a request for a large feature newel for a staircase which they were producing for a client. The newel was to be 230mm in diameter, walnut to match the handrail and needed to contrast with their customers choice of the Achill painted spindle collection, add a unique and dramatic focal point to the staircase and hallway. The newel detail was to incorporate both traditional turning combined with a modern octagonal centre and base, and importantly the top of the post had to match the profile of the handrail to ensure a perfect match when the two connect.
Tony Healy from Southwood Manufacturers Ltd said, “the staircase was a complete success, and our customer was delighted with the result”
“George Quinn Ltd have been providing our stair parts solutions for many years so when this project came up, we knew that they had the machinery and skill to bring all of these elements together in a quality finished product with a quick turn-around time”
