“We don’t cut corners” – JMB Brett & Co is a name you can trust

8 Mar , 2019  

JMB Brett & Co Ltd  are committed to carrying out all agricultural building projects to the highest possible standards and meeting their customers specified requirements. We caught up with company founder Seamus Brett who said they approach every job with commitment, energy and attention to detail.

Fast approaching the magnificent milestone of 30 years in business, JMB Brett & Co Ltd has established itself as one of the leading names in agricultural building in Mayo and surrounding environs.

The family-run business undertake a wide and varied range of projects for their customers who demand (and receive) lasting quality at a reasonable price.

Building, formwork and shuttering contractors, all types of concrete works are carried out as well as slated tanks, silage walls and slabs. Their success and reputation is built on many years’ experience and expertise in providing exemplary workmanship and quality service.

Seamus Brett established JMB Brett & Co Ltd in 1989 and today is joined in the running of the business by his sons, Brendan and James.

“I come from a farming background and built houses for 20 years,” Seamus informed Irish Tractor & Agri magazine. “I started building my first house when I was 18. The first job I did was our own slated house. I was left waiting for someone else to do it so I decided to do it myself and went off and got the materials. I’m at it ever since. We’ve built the odd house but it’s all farmers work that we specialise in now.”

Experience and know-how are the cornerstones on which the continued growth of JMB Brett & Co Ltd is built on and they possess all the machinery and equipment necessary to conduct their work both on budget and on time.

“We carry out a variety of jobs for farmers from slated tanks, silage walls and slabs while we also do machinery sheds and milking parlours. We’re building a bridge across a river at the minute.”

Good preparations are fundamental to the construction of any quality structure. The team at JMB Brett & Co Ltd recognise this and are very proud of their meticulous attention to detail. They will advise the customer on all aspects of a particular job to ensure that their requirements are met safely, quickly and precisely.

“We’re extremely busy at the moment,” Seamus revealed.

What are the secrets of their success? “We are specialists in what we do and if we say we’ll do something, we’ll do it,” he answered. “We don’t leave a job until it is completely finished to the customer’s satisfaction. We also take pride in good workmanship that we can stand over. We don’t cut corners and that is something we are well known for.”

That explains why they services are very much in demand at the moment.

Their local knowledge, combined with a positive and collaborative approach to the task in hand, continues to generate significant levels of repeat business and the team at JMB are proud to have established many long-term working relationships with numerous farmers dotted throughout their catchment area.

“We cover Mayo, Sligo, Leitrim and Roscommon, approximately a 50 mile radius from Charlestown. We carry out a lot of repeat work as well which is a good sign. As is the fact that we have never had a complaint about anything. The job is always done right!

“If farmers have money, they will spend it and the same farmers come back to us. We’ve done three to four jobs for different farmers at this stage.”

Seamus, Brendan and James immerse themselves in every project and pride themselves on leaving behind a job that lives up to their clients’ expectations.

Insistence on the highest standards backed by total integrity and a get-things-done attitude has seen JMB Brett & Company Ltd go from strength to strength. Whatever your agricultural construction requirements might be, they have the skills, resources and experience to help make your plans a reality.

Their vast wealth of knowledge and experience ensures a fast and efficient construction period and, crucially, one that minimises disruption to the day-to-day running of the farm.
