We strive to deliver innovative solutions that meet the needs of our clients. We do this by staying committed to our core values of teamwork, customer focus, quality, and innovation. These guiding principles are lived out on a day-to-day basis, forming a part of our core ideology. They inspire the work and motivation of our employees, providing a sense of purpose and fulfillment. Respect is an important principle that underpins our company values, placing the emphasis on the importance of every member of the organization. Together, we each play an important part in growing the company and, ultimately, in our success.


Propylon was founded in 1999 by Declan Hogan, Paul McKeon, and Sean McGrath after many years working together on projects in the electronic publishing of legislation and regulations. Propylon became revolutionary in the world of electronic publishing, and built what was then the largest repository of XML/HTML in the world for the Irish Parliament, the Oireachtas. Since its inception in 1999, Propylon has been at the forefront of innovation and progress in the sector, driving advancement through technology. Innovation remains firmly at the center of our business model today.
