They hold a strategic place in the marketplace and have retained and developed its customer base due to the quality of the product and a very strong customer service ethos.
The Maintenance Manager is very open to considering candidates from a variety of manufacturing backgrounds for the Fitter role it's a day's role but if you would prefer working evenings and get paid a shift allowance the company will certainly consider this as an option also.


Working as part of a team of 6 fitters on-site in the Fitter job you will perform repairs and maintenance on both a reactive and planned basis and flexibility to meet business needs and customer demands.
On site there are 5 separate units within the plant including a tar plant, ready mix plant, concrete block plant, wash plant & a quarry crushing unit.

Maintaining, servicing, and troubleshooting issues with machine parts such as gears, bearings, and chains.

  • Identifying the root causes of problems and suggest process improvements for long term solutions


The ideal candidate will be a qualified plant fitter with good welding and fabrication skills and come from a quarrying, construction, or pipelining background.
However, if you are coming from a strong mechanical plant fitting background within manufacturing my client will be keen to see your profile.
This is a day's role but like all Fitter jobs you will need to be flexible to work outside of standard working hours to address equipment breakdown issue from time to time


My client has been in operation for over 80 years with a lot of staff having been with the company for many years, so they know how to look after, reward and retain their people.

It's a very autonomous environment where people are not micro-managed and trusted to do their job and having weathered many recessions over the years you would be joining a stable and secure company with a full order book for the next few years.

There is a competitive rate of €22e pr hour with a possibility of moving to €25 e /hr after you pass your three months' probation.
