Malahide Rd Business JAC Ltd has achieved Business All-Star Accreditation for a third consecutive year. 

JAC Ltd is a wholly Irish owned lightning and surge protection company established by Joseph A. Clancy in 2007. Joe is an electrician/engineer by trade and in 1973 became involved with W.J. Furse (lightning protection designers and manufacturers) of Nottingham England.

After advancing a career with various companies in Ireland, in which he specialised solely in the design of lightning protection systems and solutions, he went on to become a recognised and respected technical expert in the field of lightning protection.

His company has now achieved Business All-Star Accreditation for a third consecutive year in recognition of its contribution to quality and standards in the field of lightning and surge protection as well as its conduct in the areas of trust performance and customer centricity. 

Reacting to the news of his company’s achievement, Business Development Director at JAC Ltd Joseph Clancy said:

We are proud and honoured to achieve Business All-Star Accreditation for a third consecutive year. The title of Lightning Protection & Earthing Specialist Company Of The Year 2023 is a powerful symbol that lets our customers and employees know we are a reliable company that holds its place at the top of our industry through diligence, hard work and industry expertise. 


Announcing JAC’s achievement, Deputy Chair of AIBF’s Adjudication Board, Kieran Ring, said:

I am delighted to recognise the achievements of Jac Ltd who have earned a third consecutive Business All-Star Accreditation and the title of Lightning Protection & Earthing Specialist Company Of The Year 2023. Our accreditation recognises the company’s conduct in the areas of trust, commitment, performance & customer centricity. Jac Ltd is hereby included in the AIBF Register Of Irish Business Excellence.


Managing Director of the All-Ireland Business Foundation, Kapil Khanna, said the accreditation, which is now held by over 500 firms, is needed by the thousands of small and medium businesses which operate to their own standards but have nothing to measure them by.


He said: “We evaluate a company’s background, trustworthiness, and performance, and we speak to customers, employees and vendors. We also anonymously approach the company as a customer and report back on the experience. The business is scored on every part of the process against set metrics.”


The All-Ireland Business Foundation (AIBF) is an autonomous national accreditation body tasked with enterprise development and the promotion of Best-in-Class in Irish business.


The Foundation actively engages and supports its network through peer dialogue, collaboration, mentoring and enterprise development activities. Companies are qualified for accreditation by completing an enterprise audit and are identified by their use of the AIBF’s Business All-Star Marque.
