Solas Office and Hygiene – Big plans for the future! – Longford Leader


Since its establishment, Solas Office and Hygiene has provided premium quality office and hygiene supplies at competitive prices.

They supply general office equipment such as paper and printer supplies, packaging and mailing, PPE, and cleaning. They also supply high-quality office furniture at the keenest prices.

Managing Director at Solas Office and Hygiene, Mark Canty explained the company’s ethos: “It’s our priority to help you make the most of your office space, maximising staff comfort and increasing productivity. For us, the office is a space for inspiration and promoting productivity, and we aim to help you with that.”

The experienced team at Solas Office has developed the business into the leading supplier of premium office and hygiene products: “Our online web store is accessible to anyone who wishes to browse through our wide range of high-quality products. Our warehouses are centrally located, this means we are ideally situated to deliver products all across Ireland,” Mark tells.

Meeting the client’s requirements is at the heart of building the business: “We adapt to our client’s needs, offering B2C and B2B services. Whether they require one pen or need to supply an entire office, we are here to help. For our B2B clients, we offer a once-off order or they can open an account with us. If you open an account, we offer a business or credit account providing many benefits including budget allocation, discounts, and recurring orders. We make deliveries to home or work as soon as possible with the next-day delivery option,” Mark tells.

Establishing the business to become a leader in their field has been a steady journey. Mark moved home to Ireland from Australia in 2018. He began working in the office industry with Lyreco. The experience gained from working with the market leaders laid the groundwork for his business.

The leap to setting up Solas Office and Hygiene came when the pandemic hit. Having worked from home at the time Mark saw the opportunity: “I decided to give it a go myself as I didn’t want to go back to driving to Dublin five days a week. It also gave me a chance to bring employment to Longford.”

Mark says being ecologically conscious is an important factor for the business: “We offer full facilities, supplies and set up. We do full office fit-outs from the floor to the ceiling; that includes office furniture, stationery and hygiene supplies and every consideration for office setups.”

The Solas Office and Hygiene Managing Director has strong local roots: “I coach the basketball team in St Mel’s and will continue to do so in the coming year. I am also the assistant chairman in the Longford Phoenix basketball club.”

Mark says he has big plans for the future: “We are looking to get into serviced mats and office contract cleaning. We give a personal service with one-to-one account management so that nothing will slip through the net.

“We are looking to up staff numbers in the coming year by 5 to 10 more people. We are also looking at opening a retail shop  and hopefully building a state-of-the-art warehouse in the next five years.”
