Procon Skyhire – the Armagh business putting its ‘best foot forward’ despite cost-of-living crisis

The director of an Armagh-based construction hire company has said that his business is going to keep pushing on “hell for leather,” despite cost-of-living woes.

With the struggles faced by businesses today, it’s not easy for owners to maintain a positive attitude, but Ryan Fegan, the director of Procon Skyhire in Armagh, says that despite the doom and gloom of today’s economic climate, he’s determined to put his “best foot forward” to keep the business growing.

And grow it has done.

The business, which is a platform hire company specialised for working at heights, came from humble beginnings with a two man team – today it boasts clients such as Facebook and Amazon.

They offer a comprehensive fleet of powered access platforms for working at height, including: electric and diesel scissors, electric and diesel cherry pickers and telehandlers.

They have around 90 machines available as part of the current portfolio, with new machines being acquired all the time.

Ryan says that he “took a chance” when the business was set up back in 2018 after he noticed a gap in the construction market in Dublin.

“We spent a lot on machinery”, he added.

The businesses started off small, and has just kept growing since then, with Ryan raising his ambitions for the company to keep going.

He said: “We just want it to be ten times bigger, but we’re growing all the time. We have our own marketing team, office staff, engineers and delivery drivers. My ambition is to just make it bigger. We love getting new clients on board.”

Ryan says that customer service is at the heart of the business and everything they do.

With offices based both in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, they are ideally based to help respond to queries quickly and offer high-quality solutions across the island.

Procon offer a “personal approach” to every customer, with fully trained staff offering highly professional and tailored solutions.

“We’re a local company, with men on the ground”, Ryan said.

“We pride ourselves on our customer service. We offer full service and will have issues sorted within 24 hours. If something needs done, we will make it happen.”

Procon Skyhire hire their machinery in both construction and domestic settings, with 70% of business going to the construction sector. However, they can meet any need, whether you’re a local business owner or simply just want work done to your home.

Procon offer training for machinery too, providing all the support needed to help budding operators achieve that much needed cert.

In line with their safety-first approach, Procon courses provide fundamental training requirements to those needing to operate and handle machinery, with the training available at one of their Armagh or Dublin sites, with site-visits to clients also a possibility.

With Procon Skyhire putting their “best foot forward” into the new year, why not come and join the team of a growing local business?
