Telford welcomes Irish engineering firm’s new base

Engineering firm, O’Donovan Engineering has established a sales and distribution centre in Telford.

Founded in 1978, the family-owned company headquartered in Coachford, Co Cork, Ireland, brings over 45 years of expertise in designing and manufacturing livestock housing and handling equipment.

Through joint initiatives spearheaded by Telford Council and The Department for Business and Trade, with assistance in property search provided by Invest Telford, the council’s business support team facilitated the company’s transition.

Additionally, the collaboration between Telford & Wrekin Council and The UK Agri-Tech Centre contributed to enabling O’Donovan Engineering’s establishment in Telford.

Deirdre O’Donovan, managing director at O’Donovan Engineering, said: “Our establishment of a permanent office in the UK, particularly at the Midlands Agri-Tech Innovation Hub in Telford, underscores our firm commitment to offer a complete customer-focused solution for the UK market. At O’Donovan Engineering, our primary focus is on developing solutions that enhance farm safety and efficiency. Through the integration of advanced safety features and the optimization of livestock flow, we aim to set new standards of excellence. We eagerly anticipate assembling a dedicated team capable of meeting the needs of this dynamic market.”
