Our Story / Who we are

Profile Developments is celebrating 40 years in business this year. 
Before designing the Palladio Door, the founder Tim Costello spent 10 years researching the door market, in order to realise his mission, to design the best front door in the market. 
Now employing 230+ staff and an industry leader, manufacturing and selling Palladio Doors across Ireland & the UK, there are many reasons indeed to celebrate, the many milestones highlighted below.
Established in 1984 Profile Developments was established by Tim Costello and his family, initially manufacturing a range of PVC panels called The Renaissance Collection, which is produced to this day.
a unique range of external composite doors called The Palladio Door Collection was born.
January 2010 saw the first Palladio door being sold in the Irish markets whereas the end of 2010 saw the doors being sold in the UK markets. The machinery for the same was designed by our CEO Tim himself.
2022 saw the launch of The Avant Garde Collection, a unique range of beautiful composite doors to suit more modern and contemporary homes.
The Palladio Georgian Pillar Collection was launched in 2023 to complement homes.
The company is based in Glin, a picturesque village on the banks of the Shannon estuary, with the Glencorby river running alongside it in Co. Limerick, Ireland. Tim and his family grew up in Glin.

About Glin

Glin is a buzzing touristy village with a variety of choices to stay, eat and drink at, few of which have been award-winning. Besides, there is a library, a community playground, and visitors can make the most of their stay by going on heritage trails and other exciting walks.

Elevated townlands in the parish offer scenic views of the Shannon estuary and beyond- Locally called the ‘Scenic Route’, it runs along the top of the hill that affords views of Clare to the north, Kerry to the west, Tipperary to the east and Cork to the south.

In 2009, the strong community spirit was nationally acknowledged when Glin was the proud winner of All Ireland Pride of Place.

Glin Castle, home of the Fitzgerald family and seat of the hereditary Knights of Glin, stands proudly in the middle of its 400 acre wooded demesne on the banks of the Shannon and is the gateway to the south-west of Ireland and the famous Wild Atlantic Way.

Catherine Fitzgerald, daughter of the last Knight of Glin, and her husband actor Dominic West, have rescued her family home, Glin Castle from being sold, along with her sisters. It has attracted visits from many famous icons, including the singer/ songwriter Taylor Swift who has been spotted enjoying a drink at the local pub, O’Shaughnessy’s.
