Two of Ireland’s leading outsource fabrication companies have signed a Strategic Partnership formalizing their decades-long collaboration on high-end HVAC ducting projects.
In announcing this agreement between McAree Engineering Ltd. and Breffni Air, Brendan McAree, McAree Engineering MD advised.
“We have collaborated with Breffni Air on a number of projects over the past 20 years and are delighted to formalize this arrangement. This partnership will help us to grow our business and get involved in a number of exciting projects where we can showcase our design and manufacturing expertise.”
Patrick Sheanon, Breffni Air MD added "both our companies have worked together extremely well in the past and with both of us growing rapidly and building a complementary capability, it makes sense to formalize our relationship. We have similar values, are progressive, and have a demonstrated ability to deliver major projects by both workings to our strengths. I am extremely happy that this partnership approach will ensure that together we will continue to grow".
Breffni Air is completing a €5m investment in a new 100,000 square foot factory unit and associated machinery at their newly acquired site in Killygarry, Cavan.

With an extensive project pipeline in place for Technology and Data Centre projects in Ireland, UK, and Europe, Breffni Air expects to create a further 80 positions across Ireland with the remaining 80 in Europe.
