Our History

Liffey Transport was established in 1998 by Michael Gill and Brendan Nolan specialising in the transportation of glass.

Initially we provided glass transportation services to Dockrell’s Glass Ltd. and then subsequently for Saint Gobain Glass.

In 2001 Liffey Transport commenced transporting glass for one of Ireland’s leading double glazed units manufacturing company and in 2002 Liffey Transport’s director, Michael Gill, also became the Transport & Logistics Manager for Dockrell’s Glass Saint Gobain in Ireland.

Liffey Transport have dispatched and transported a range of glass product into the Irish and UK market. Types of glass transported are artic loads of sheet glass including anneals glass, laminate glass, fire glass and  figured glass. Our smaller fleet lorries can carry loose glass, doubled glazed units, processed glass and mirror.

We continue to provide our specialised glass transportation service to one of Ireland’s leading double glazed manufacturing company and this relationship continues to grow. Brendan Nolan has overseen operations with this company over the past number of years and continues to do so.

In 2008 Michael Gill became the General Manager of an infant company called Dublin Coach which has now become a very successful public transport company. Michael resigned from his position in December 2012 to concentrate on his passion in the glass transportation business and has returned to support Brendan in his role.
