History and Experience of Irish Fencing Services.
In 2017 we celebrate the 44th. Anniversary of the foundation of our business in Ballyboughal, North County Dublin by its current Chairman Terry Hobdell.
In 1979 we moved to a 2,000sq metre factory in Ballyfermot . Since then we have opened branches in Cork and Newry.
Over the past 44 years, we have developed an unequaled expertise in the Manufacture & Installation of Fences, Gates & Railings. In 2016 we moved to a state of the art manufacturing facility in Dublin 8 with extensive display and demonstration areas and over 50,000 sq. ft. of yard space where we stock a wide range of Meshes, Palisade, Gates and other products. We are within a mile of the M.50 and Naas Rd. and ideally located for clients wishing to purchase and install themselves. Most of our output is installed by our fully qualified crews who are certified for the products and equipment they use. We complete contracts ranging from a few thousand euro to €1.5 million
The Company is now under the Direction of Shane Winters Managing Director and Sarah Wilson Financial Director and is focused on providing the highest level of customer service and quality products delivered and installed efficiently and safely. We currently employ over 40 people in our 3 locations.
Our customer base includes end users large and small both commercial and domestic,as well as professionals from the architectural, engineering, surveying and construction disciplines. We have a long reputation in working in the diplomatic area and we have provided gates and railings for The US, UK, and Russian & French Embassies to name a few. We also have extensive experience in the multi national area having worked with IBM, Microsoft, Google, Apple, PayPal, Proctor & Gamble Johnson & Johnson, Diageo among many.
We generally act as sub-contractors to a main contractor, though we can act as main contractors for projects where our core activities form a significant part and then employ specialists as sub-contractors for their trades.
New products and innovation
Whilst our core products are Fences, Gates and Railings we have added many other products to our range. for example In the sporting area as well as Netting and Sportsmesh we now offer Dugouts for coaches, mentors and subs to use pitch side, retractable netting dividers to enable the division of large pitches into smaller areas when needed and finally the largest product in our range, fully seated spectator stands specifically designed for individual club needs.
In May 2013 we were appointed fencing contractor for the National Sports Campus in Abbotstown Dublin to provide Kinsale sports mesh fencing to 12 pitches.
We are exclusive Irish Distributor For Kee Safety®. including Kee Klamp® the World’s leading System for Tube Connection without welding.
In 2014 we were appointed Fencing Partners to South West Microwave of Arizona for their integrated perimeter protection systems.
An increasing area of our business is the provision of customised hard wood fencing to exacting standards,usually to architectural specification.
We have also an extensive range of standard fencing panels available from stock
We follow a policy of continuous product development designed to improve the effectiveness of our products and services
