“We supply renowned products that have been tried and tested over many years. I actually hired another fitter today and we are tipping away. If it continues to be this busy we will take on more staff. That wasn’t my intention at the start, I had planned to work a away with a couple of lads but business has been better than I had anticipated.
“We provide a nationwide service, from Waterford to Antrim, and the future outlook for the business is very positive. I have been fortunate to have always made a good living from it. There’s no better people to invest money in their farms than farmers and I greatly appreciate the support we have received and continue to receive from the farming community in Ireland.”
