About Us


In 1981 Mick Forde decided to start up a steel fabrication business to service the needs of local farmers.   Very quickly the Forde name became synonymous with quality products which were well designed and built to last.   These products included a full range of farmyard equipment, cattle penning, tractor trailers and steel framed buildings.   A year later Mick was joined by his wife Mairead  to manage the finances which she continues to manage in a very efficient  manner to this day.

In the early 90’s it was decided to specialize on designing fabricating and erecting steel framed buildings for the agricultural and industrial market. A new streamline purpose built workshop was erected which helped the company to produce buildings at competitive rates.

As the years rolled on the Forde name had become more widely known  in the industrial sector due to the fact that customers found that by taking advantage of the experience and advice offered by the company they could get the best value for money buildings erected by Fordes.

In the year 2000 Pat Healy joined the company to deal with the increased volume in sales of structural steel commercial \ Industrial buildings. The fact that Pat can look after the pricing, steel & cladding detailing, procurment and project managing means the customer can be assured of getting the best personal attention and efficient management for the project.

Cathal Deasy joined the team in 2006 and he looks after the Agricultural Building side of the business in the same manner as Pat.

Fordes have always employed only staff and subcontractors who are totally competent  and always ensure that buildings are constructed in a safe manner and finished to the highest quality standard.

By dealing with the team at Fordes you can get the best professional service and be assured of a building that will be completed expediently at a price to suit you.
