Our History

After 100 years in business, we have learned a thing or two about what it takes to achieve longevity.

It’s not just hard work and luck, although that helps.

It’s the people.

Science and industry has changed and advanced in ways we could never have imagined, but it’s our team’s adaptability that always made sure that Lennox evolved too. Some truly brilliant people have walked our corridors, boardrooms and warehouses, and their legacy is in our blood. 

It’s in the relationships we nurture with our customers and the long-term partnerships we have developed with our supply network. It’s in our team of scientists and engineers, and it’s in our unrelenting commitment to always finding new and smarter ways of working.

Their vision, ingenuity, dedication and resilience built the successes of Lennox’s past, and continue to inspire us as we plan for the future.

Getting Started in 1923

On 26 October 1923, four businessmen walked into a building on Great Strand Street, with an idea for a company. Robert Lennox, who served as Managing Director and our namesake, Charles Russell, Lionel Rosenthal and John Pride. 

When they founded Lennox, they could not have predicted the transformation the world was to undergo over the next century but their efforts and vision built a company with a strong foundation that would be able to adapt to whatever the future held.

Moving On in 1937

In 1937, Lennox was on the move, setting up shop on South Leinster Street. This change was driven, as is always the case with Lennox, by a desire to better serve our customers, with the more central location placing us closer to key partners such as Trinity College Dublin.

A Game-Changing Legacy Begins in 1959

In 1959, a man whose work would shape who we are as a company for generations, became the Managing Director of Lennox. A Sligoman, John Chambers – always referred to by the staff as Mr Chambers – gave many young employees a start when no one else would, and was known for quietly helping those in difficulty. 

It was this commitment to bringing out the best in the people he worked with as well as his strategic mind that ensured his legacy. His values continue to guide us to this day.

Challenging Times in 1974

On 17 May 1974, a car bomb went off on South Leinster Street about 100 metres from the front of Lennox, blowing out our windows. While, thankfully, none of the staff at Lennox were injured, there were two fatalities on the street and several people injured.

Coming Home in 1980

As new industries and technologies sprung up, the 1980s saw us on the move again. We set up what is still our current home in the JFK Industrial Estate, finally housing our separate departments under one roof.

A Big Birthday in 1998

In 1998, we were feeling our age as we celebrated a milestone birthday, our 75th. Hundreds of employees - past and present - suppliers, family and friends all came together for a celebration of those who had built and supported Lennox since 1923.

A New Era in 2000

The 2000s saw the growth of FDI in Ireland, with multinationals and indigenous companies accelerating innovation and growth across industries nationwide. As always, the Lennox team adapted as they expanded their services.

Taking Up With The Rebels in 2018

We welcomed a new location in 2018, with the opening of our Cork office. With its 19,000sq ft warehouse, our Munster hub serves the region’s tech and pharma clusters as well as working with the education sector across the province.

Celebrating 100 Years in Business

On the 26th of October 2023, we reached a significant milestone in the journey of Lennox as we celebrated 100 years in business.

A lot has changed both for Ireland as a country, and Lennox as a company, since our founders walked into a building on Great Strand Street on the 26th of October 1923. However, our team continues to innovate, creating new solutions that not only bring benefits to our customers but also advance our industry as a whole.  

From our beginnings on Great Strand Street, where four men came together bonded by a shared love of the sciences, we have created a legacy that drives us forward - to the next 100 years.
