2017 was a milestone year for Abbey Machinery. It is the year we celebrated 70 years in business; Clodagh Cavanagh (Managing Director) won two prestigious awards – CEO of the Year in the IMAGE Businesswoman of the Year & Outstanding Achievement UL Alumni Award for her contribution to business; we launched new 6000g (27,000L) Tankers, new Door Mounted Applicator, VF1350 Diet Feeder and Application Control in Slurry; we unveiled new Slurry Management System and we entered new markets in Asia and Poland.
All these are important steps for the company and are all milestones in their own right. The company’s reputation is built on quality machines, with unrivaled user experience, value added technology, maintenance friendly and long life.
Customers are at the centre of everything we do. This ensure machines are built to meet and exceed their high expectations.
Over the past 7 decades there are many key developments including our award winning tilling equipment (ploughs etc), our emergence into Slurry application systems over 30 years ago, manufacture of Paddle Diet Feeders for 3 decades, Vertical Auger Feeders for 17 years to name but a few..
In 2012, we made the bold move to build a state of the art Manufacturing Centre on a green field site in Toomevara in Tipperary. We use cutting edge technologies like laser cutting, plasma cutting, heavy duty cranes and presses, latest rolling technology, two pac heated paint workshop… In addition we employ lean manufacturing techniques and only accept the highest standards of finish.
The next 70 years I am sure will look even more interesting…!
