“We at Dunraven manufacture and sell our range of oil tank gauges and a range of management systems for oil distributors under our brand name Apollo, among them being the Apollo Smart the worlds first smart meter for oil heating measurement and control. Thereby giving end user the ability to monitor their usage of oil in litres per day, week, month, years. It also measures the costs on a similar basis, ensuring never to run out of oil and save energy and reduce costs by its use.

We have been working with PKF-FPM for the past 7 years and have been guided and supported by Michael Farrell from the Dundalk office.

Our initial involvement was as year end auditors which only involved audits.  However after a short period of time it became evident that Michael and PKF-FPM had much more to offer by way of support and guidance.

Through the years through various meetings his recommendations on the management of the company and the installation of vital controls necessary to measure performance became obvious.  This then gave us the information necessary to make crucial decisions regarding the direction and future of the company.

Michael’s support has given us the courage to make progressive decisions, even in these difficult economic times, that has stood us in good stead. As a result of their guidance and the information from our improved management systems we have been able to expand our product range, increase sales and improve profitability.

Their support and input has clearly confirmed that ” If you don’t measure it you can’t control it”

On a personal basis I welcome Michael’s support and guidance and all the help he has given me to view the bigger picture and the courage to expand my company and to look to the future with the glass half full mentality.

I look forward to continued relationship with Michael and PKF-FPM.”

Gerry Jones, Managing Director, Dunraven Systems Ltd

“As a result of the recession my wife and I were left with significant personal guarantees and other debts in relation to a failed construction company and were under incredible pressure and did not know where to turn.  Our accountant suggested that we contact PKF-FPM Accountants.  PKF-FPM quickly and clearly presented our options and made a recommendation. As a result PKF-FPM were able of get a 90% write-down on our debts.  We have now returned to solvency and can sleep at night for the first time in years.”
