THE JOINT-IT STORY
By Autumn 2016, the company had a direct sales force on the ground in Ireland and the UK, with their first distributor appointed in France. Joint-it Simple™ paving jointing mortar, was rapidly earning a best-in-class reputation among the paving and landscaping trade.
Joint-It moved into a 28,000 sq. ft. factory in Milltown, Co. Galway in January 2017.
In September 2017, Joint-It exhibited at Marmomac – the largest stone show in Europe, for the first time, as well as attending Glee and The Landscape Show in the UK.
By the beginning of 2018, production had doubled, five additional staff joined the company and distributors were added in 6 more countries.
Leading the company’s international expansion is Gary Duffy, Sales Director, who has negotiated distribution agreements in Israel, India and European markets in Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany, since the Marmomac show. Visiting the Stone Show in Las Vegas in January 2018 has led to the setting up of three distributors in the USA in Texas, Connecticut and Washington State, with the first container shipped in April 2018. Joint-It Simple™ is now listed in over 300 outlets in Ireland and the UK including Grafton Group, CRH and Glanbia; JP Corry and MacBlair in Northern Ireland; while in France, the product is listed with the Kingfisher Castorama group.
The R&D process, headed up by Martin Fox whose background in the paving industry coupled with his knowledge and experience of working with sand, cement and chemical solutions, led to the breakthrough formulation that is Joint-It Simple™. Additional products are under development and the company plans to have a range of products that will enable the trade to clean, seal and joint their natural stone paving.
Winning a National Enterprise Award in 2018 was a definite highlight of the year and demonstrates the level of support for Joint-It Simple™ in Ireland and the UK, as well as in our new international markets. Joint-It would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our stockists and the paving and landscaping trade whose continued support will see Joint-It Simple™ reach new heights in the years to come.
