We are Erris
Erris Builders Ltd was established in 1973 by Tony and Mary Gilleran to provide Civil Engineering and General Construction services to businesses and local authority clients throughout the Midlands.
The company remains a family-run business today.
The scope of projects undertaken quickly expanded to include drainage installation and maintenance, highways works, surfacing and structures maintenance contracts from public and private sector clients including Councils, blue-chip construction and house-building companies and facilities management providers.
