Welcome

ADCO Contracting set up business in early 2009 with a strong focus on clean room installation, fit-out works and general contracting specifically in the pharmaceutical sector. Since then, we have become well established in the pharmaceutical sector completing shutdowns, upgrades and redevelopment works, and gained a reputation for quality service and deliverability. As well as an emphasis on pharmaceutical works, we also undertake general contracting and commercial fit-out works in many areas, and in the past, have provided project management services for several clients. We are still a relatively young player in our industry, but conduct ourselves as if we were a global leader. Our clients value our dedication to innovation, safety, sustainability and our responsiveness and devotion to customer service. Over the coming years, we will focus strongly on maintaining our status as a quality specialist in the pharmaceutical sector, whilst broadening and strengthening our client base. As well as this, our goal is to innovate and develop in the construction industry whilst branching out into larger commercial fit outs and new builds.

Michael Foran founded ADCO in early 2009, when a lot of people would have considered starting a construction business a sure loss, but due to the work experience and ethic he and his team bring to each project, ADCO has gone from strength to strength and shows no sign of slowing down.
