Innovation and Best Value
Our philosophy is simple: know your customers, understand their needs in detail and meet those needs, not only with the products they ask for but also with innovative construction and engineering solutions which save time and add value to the build process.
In combination with ensuring compliance with legislation and enhancing safety at work, Ridgeway’s business model has helped cement its reputation as a ‘go to’ destination for the best products, solutions and operating methods.
Our supplier base is a crucial investment in our business ethos and Ridgeway seek to develop and grow sustainable long term relations with suppliers that develop and reinvest in new products and ideas for improvement on process, performance and price toward true best value on life time costs.
We are proud of local manufacturing capabilities in Ireland, European and the UK and promote home grown excellence as a priority for the local economy in our business plans, whilst constantly seeking out new opportunities and ideas from across the globe, returning them to the province to commercial scale reality and growth.
Moving With The Times
In 1969 Ridgeway Plant Company Ltd acquired its name from their first location at Ridgeway Street, beside the Lyric Theatre in Belfast.
In 1972 the company transferred to Diamond Gardens in Finaghy, then in 1987 on to a prime purpose built site in Boucher Road, which at that time was the centre hub for transport links to all areas of the province.
During this time the company also created depot locations in Chelmsford, UK and Dublin, Ireland. Improvements in the local transport infrastructure and a new developing Belfast offered Ridgeway the chance to relocate to superb ‘drive through’ style premises on Airport Road West in 2004.
In 2016 Ridgeway opened a new depot in Ashbourne, County Meath, further strengthening the supply chain to the construction, engineering and manufacturing industries throughout Ireland. Complete with a call-in trade counter and experienced staff, the new depot offers the same services and product ranges as our Belfast operation and provides a centrally-located hub for fast Ireland-wide delivery.
These progressive moves represent the steady, sustainable growth that Ridgeway have shown for over 40 years ensuring that the best facilities, location and service are available for their customers.
Like in any owner managed business, the team are the core assets of the machine. Ridgeway have invested heavily in the right people and have a proud record of dedicated staff, suppliers and loyal customers.
The focus on good down to earth service with a personal touch to ensure complete satisfaction and repeat business is our core competency and value at Ridgeway.
With a relatively young and yet very experienced management team the business is in good hands as we continue to invest in technology and systems to offer better service, communicate information and respond faster to clients needs.
