Tennants Building Products is part of the Tennants Group of Companies, which was originally founded in 1797. With an eye on growing markets, the company established trading operations in Belfast (1805) and Dublin (1810), and over the years has expanded its scope to become a leading specialist distributor on an all-Ireland basis.

During this time, Tennants Building Products has developed strong relationships with the manufacturers of specialist construction products and now boasts successful partnerships with leading industry names, to ensure that you, the customer, get the top quality products you need and have come to rely on from Tennants.
We specialise in six core areas – drywall, ceilings, fire protection, insulation, acoustics and external façades – and by concentrating on these sectors, we have been able to develop an envious, and largely exclusive, portfolio of products for both the specialist and traditional contractor.

As a result, we are now recognised as a leading expert within all six of these areas.

At the very heart of our business lies a firm focus on customer service. We consider the expertise and industry knowledge of our staff to be a vital part of our continued success.

Our extensive technical expertise covers the specification and performance of our extensive product range, and you can rely on the team from Tennants to offer sound advice and information to keep you right when specifying or installing a product – it’s all part of the service.




Design and technical support is at the heart of Tennants commitment to deliver a professional service from your first idea to completion:

At Tennants we believe we can help right from inception, throughout Design and on to delivering the right product at the right price. We will ensure that no compromise is required in order to achieve your vision and goals.

We pride ourselves on our technical ability and knowledge to assist designers and specifiers and installers from a very early stage to choose the best products at an affordable for each bespoke application.

Any criteria must be considered from Fire ratings, Acoustics and thermal performance when specifying for today’s demanding regulations and standards. We promote only the products that can guarantee these performances and can offer proven longevity. We therefore offer total client satisfaction and can give you the peace of mind that you have made the right choice and have chosen the right partner to engage with time and time again.
