About the GMC Utilities Group

Since its foundation in the late 1970s, the GMC Utilities Group has grown organically year on year. Through its then operating arm, Gerry McCloskey (Irl) Ltd., GMC commenced operations in the Telecoms sector with contracts for Telecom Eireann and British Telecom. By adopting a cost orientated and quality driven approach from its inception, the GMC Utilities Group has seen this organic growth spread throughout all other divisions.

The Group’s founder, Gerry McCloskey, has engendered a philosophy which has encouraged consistent heavy investment in labour, plant and back office resources. Through its programmes for labour and staff training, GMC personnel strive to deliver projects which surpass clients’ expectations. The Directors of GMC have facilitated this growth and quality driven approach by careful strategic planning. The Group has introduced a Total Integrated Management System which incorporates the ISO 9001:2008, the OHSAS: 18001:2007 and the ISO: 14001:2004 standards. The entire Group is certified across all these standards. Today the GMC Utilities Group has a presence across a broad spectrum of utilities such as:
