CONCEPT COLOURS ADD THE FINISHING TOUCH AT PUNCHESTOWN

Press Release  14/02/2023 – Punchestown Racecourse today announced that new sponsor Concept Colours will join the action packed line up on Sunday 19th February at the home of Irish jump racing. The Concept Colours Rated Novice Chase will take place over two miles and offers a prize fund of €21,500.Concept Colours are the industry leader when it comes to painting and decorating contracts across multiple sectors including residential, commercial, education and special interest. With an impressive client base that lists Glenveagh, Cairn, Kingscroft, The Elliott Group, Bennett Construction, Sisk and Bam, the Wexford based firm have established themselves as the go to painting contractor in Ireland.

For Concept Colours founder and Managing Director Ger Byrne, the Punchestown sponsorship makes sense on a number of levels. “It’s a case of the best of both worlds as my family have an interest in a few horses and we’ve always enjoyed spending an afternoon racing at Punchestown.  On a recent visit it became clear that our current and potential clients also share this interest so commercial involvement there would be a good move. Whilst Punchestown offers a great platform for awareness it also provides a good opportunity to network in a unique and relaxed way”
Byrne continued to explain how his company has grown in the twenty years since it’s foundation    “Our focus is on the people. The people involved in each project, that is from initial client consultation to briefing our highly skilled management team and fully trained personnel. Our aim is to deliver an exceptional standard of finish and to do it on time. This takes planning and professionalism which, after twenty years in the business, we feel we can deliver on every project regardless of size”.
Leona Hughes Sponsorship Manager Punchestown racecourse welcomed Concept Colours and highlighted the similarities between the two businesses “We constantly repeat that ‘People make Punchestown’ and this includes clients, sponsors, contractors and race goers. It is a pleasure to work with clients like Ger Byrne and the Concept Colours team. They know the drill. They recognise the value of the people involved at Punchestown and whilst it’s a great place to relax and enjoy yourself it is also a wonderful opportunity to do business. We welcome Concept Colours and look forward to working with Ger and his team to develop the partnership”.
