Carlow, Ireland, and Lisburn, N. Ireland – June 2, 2022

During these extraordinary times, more and more Irish business owners are aware of their vital responsibility for public health and safety within their facilities. Hygiene and safety standards have become a critical focus for every business, and not just a regulatory responsibility that they must meet for the sake of compliance.

Joe Curran of VSS Ireland, and Seamus Bracken of Rosanagh, are dynamic, industry veterans and former work colleagues, who have come together to meet these needs. Their companies have already collaborated on multiple projects, achieving highly successful outcomes for their clients. From those collaborations, they recognised a need and an opportunity in the market; to present their customers with a simplified, but comprehensive, suite of services that would ensure their clients would be safe, compliant with industry best standards, and assured of meeting their regulatory responsibilities.

The partners’ objective is to make life easier, safer and healthier for their clients – creating a new standard of excellence in the industry, and synergising processes within and between the companies to create substantial gains in efficiency and value for their customers. Given the strength of both companies’ skilled and certified teams of technical experts, the market will gain significantly from this collaboration.

“In Rosanagh, we saw the missing link in our value chain,” explains Joe Curran, Group CEO of VSS Ireland and Rosanagh. “The same customers who trust us with their Air Ductwork and Fire Safety needs, also need to guarantee Water Safety for their customers and their staff. By collaborating with Rosanagh, we are offering added greater value for our customers, our partners, and our suppliers”.

The strategic partnership aims to serve all business and homeowners, and holds special promise for the food service industry, where hygiene, health and safety is critical but often handled by multiple vendors operating on different schedules, and following different certification protocols.
Joe continued “Managing assessments, testing, certification and remedial actions can be very cumbersome for the average business owner already juggling many tasks in the day. We work with over 2,000 businesses in Ireland and they all have the same goals – to keep their customers and staff safe, to simplify the health and safety process, and to minimize disruption in their business. We have structured our whole business around our client’s needs, and we’re pleased to say that this customer-centric strategy has worked for us. We’re the ones who keep track, and issue reminders of when testing and certification is due, and we manage the onsite work on a schedule that suits our client. You’ll often find VSS Ireland or Rosanagh vans on the road during unsocial hours for that reason!”

These dynamic companies are equally committed to digital transformation. They each have robust, digital communication processes in place, so that a client usually receives his digital certification within a day of the site assessment. The entire visit, and any works carried out, are photographed and documented in a detailed report to the client and backed up on file for posterity, or until required during a Safety Inspection. The same platform is used in the planning, deployment, and administration of resources for a range of processes, including bookings and scheduled services which greatly optimise workflows and efficiency within the teams.

Greater competitiveness, greater convenience in a dynamic environment

The strategic partnership between VSS Ireland and Rosanagh came as a result of market demand, explains Seamus Bracken, Group Managing Director of VSS Ireland and Rosanagh.

“As former Sales Director of VSS Ireland, I am familiar with their unsurpassed suite of services and their reputation for exceptional customer care. I’ve been recommending Joe and his VSS Ireland team for years now, and we have had a chance to collaborate closely on a number of projects. We became aware that nobody in the market was packaging these synergistic services together – even though that would be most convenient and valuable for the customer. When given a choice, the simplest option is usually the most effective! That’s what this partnership is – a simple but comprehensive service that gives my customers and VSS Ireland’s customers exactly what they want to work with, and what they need from a health, safety and compliance point of view”.
The companies together hold the highest levels of accreditations in the marketplace, and these teams are committed to building the strongest and most highly certified team of technical specialists in Ireland through continuous upskilling of their workforce.

“Our Accreditations demonstrate that we have undergone rigorous review and regular evaluations under independent governance. It reassures our clients that we are delivering high quality services, and that we are qualified to ensure their businesses will be fully compliant with industry standards and regulations”, added Paul Duff, Technical Director.
