What makes a good business, great?

All it takes is one person to come up with an idea to turn it into something great, but what happens when there’s a team of people working together?

As the great Steve Jobs, Apple CEO once said,

“Great things in business are never done by one person. They’re done by a team of people!”



When my wife Caroline and I started out with ESF, we knew exactly what we wanted to achieve – we just weren’t sure how we were going to get there. Fast forward five years though and we have established ourselves as a great and successful business that is one of the leading suppliers of street, solar and themed furniture, not only in Northern Ireland but globally.


But how did we get there?

The rollercoaster world of business has lots of highs and lows and at ESF, we have experienced both. What has been consistent throughout however, is the help and assistance we have received from our support network of colleagues, acquaintances, family and friends. Not to mention lots of hard work!

At ESF, we pride ourselves on our ability to deliver an exceptional standard in everything we do but we have also been on the receiving end of excellence. In the last few months alone, we have celebrated our fifth birthday which couldn’t have been made possible without the fantastic team we have here at ESF.

We have been nominated for, and the winners of, a number of prestigious industry awards in the last six months, locally and nationally, each a reflection of our team’s hard work and dedication

We also recently launched our BRAND NEW website, which you can check out here! As well as providing information on our comprehensive range of products, there’s also news from the ESF team, as well as our previous projects.

Has the ESF team completed any work near you?

Whilst it can be easy to forget, for every product or service we receive, there is an exceptional team of people behind the delivery and at ESF, this is no different. I feel very grateful for our team and our extended network that continue to help us achieve great things.

After all, Steve Jobs also said; ‘We hire people who want to make the best things in the world’ – we’re no different at ESF!
