Co. Down acoustics consultancy sounds out export business

Marshall Day Acoustics Ireland has secured £60,000 of new business in the Republic of Ireland over the past five months with support from Invest Northern Ireland.

Based in Warrenpoint, Co. Down, the company provides specialist advice to the construction and utilities sectors on areas including sound insulation, room acoustics and noise and vibration assessments. These services are used by architects and engineers to help them design performing arts spaces as well as new environmental, commercial and educational buildings.

The sales success in RoI follows an investment by Marshall Day Acoustics Ireland aimed at boosting its export marketing and software capabilities. Invest NI offered £19,000 of support to help the company maximise its growth potential.

Marshall Day Acoustics Ireland is a locally owned subsidiary of an Australasian company by the same name, which has a presence in Australia, New Zealand, Asia, United Kingdom and Ireland.

Mark Bleakney, Manager of Invest NI’s Southern Regional Office, said: “Marshall Day Acoustics Ireland is a proactive and ambitious company which has identified significant sales opportunities in the Republic of Ireland. Implementing an extensive programme of marketing activities has helped the firm to secure notable sales in recent months and build up awareness of its services among potential new customers.”

Andy Irwin, Managing Director of Marshall Day Acoustics Ireland, said: “Over the past five months we have focused heavily on enhancing our competitiveness outside Northern Ireland and with support from Invest NI we have secured substantial export business. With further projects on the horizon, we hope to build on our success by continuing to proactively market our services to influential contractors and architects in the Republic of Ireland.”
