Welcome, welcome, welcome: Granite becomes Umbraco Gold Partner

Granite is the first Irish Umbraco Gold Partner!

Today marks a truly special occasion for the Umbraco Gold Partner family. We’re thrilled to introduce Ireland’s first Umbraco Gold Partner - Granite! Being Ireland's largest digital agency and placed in the top 20 fastest growing technology companies in the country, Granite decided to upgrade the friendship and utilise the perks of the Gold Partnership. Here they are to tell you the rest:

Hello there!😊

We’re Granite - Ireland’s leading full-service digital agency made up of more than 65 bright minds across 4 offices in Ireland and the UK. 

It all started back in 2008, in West Cork, when an ambitious group of friends took the leap and decided to build an online marketing agency. Fast forward 12 years later, we have grown by acquisition (8 and counting) and are now Ireland’s largest and best (we may be biased😄)  independently owned full-service digital agency.


Our incredible in-house team of experts is specialized in creating and developing websites, platforms, apps, and other digital products for various sectors. Our approach to crafting unique solutions is straight from the shoulder; we work closely with our clients to get the best return for them and use actual data and insights to drive our solutions.  

We take great pride in being the first Irish digital agency to become an Umbraco Gold Partner. 


Umbraco is the best option for us💗

Our history with .NET development goes back a long way. So, when it came down to choosing an open-source CMS to enable our clients to grow, Umbraco was the best option for us. 

Umbraco is scalable, secure, and offers fantastic support. And our developers love it because it creates clean code and allows for seamless integrations into other solutions.


We’ve been working with Umbraco for over 7 years now. As we won new Umbraco projects, we quickly realised we could deliver solutions faster, better and also at improved margins. Let’s just say that this made our finance team especially happy.😀

All these things combined inspired us to make the jump to become Ireland’s first Umbraco Gold Partner and we are determined to grow the community in Ireland as fast as we can in 2020.


The value of being a Gold Partner🥇

In the end, becoming an Umbraco Gold Partner was the natural next step for Granite. Umbraco is user and integration-friendly, and generates amazing results for SEO. And all these come with no license fee that is generally our pitch complete. This is what makes Umbraco a key component in our toolset to grow our company by 100% in the next 3 years.

''We see a growing demand for .NET CMS platforms, especially among our Enterprise clients. Umbraco, being open source with a great client portfolio and community, ensures we can quickly build confidence in the platform as an enabler of digital growth for the future.
Being Ireland’s first-ever Gold Partner shows our commitment and our belief in Umbraco. It's a great addition to the digital solutions we can offer to our clients.''

Rob Carpenter, Co-Founder Granite

''As one of Ireland’s leading digital agencies with more than a decade of web development experience, I am very pleased to welcome them as the first Gold Partner in Ireland.

Ireland, as a market for Umbraco, has seen significant growth in recent years. It’s a pleasure to have Granite onboard to help accelerate this growth as well as expand the Irish community even more.''
