We help to enable non-profit organisations to give better service to more people through the systematic and innovative use of technology.

The core business of our EPIC social enterprise is the production of a range of printed promotional materials such as tee shirts, caps, mugs, bags, pens, conference materials etc. Like many other businesses, the demand for our products slowed when the pandemic struck. However, in response to the challenge of COVID-19, and to respond to a societal need, we diversified into the supply of hand sanitiser. In addition to our core business, clients in our four units in Wexford Town, Gorey, Enniscorthy and New Ross, are now engaged in bottling, labelling, packing, and shipping our Virus Killer hand sanitiser whilst adhering to the guidelines on social distancing, enhanced hygiene regimes and other health and safety requirements.
