John F. Concannon

An early sign of our innovative streak was evident when we designed the Multi-Bucket Calf Feeder which was famously featured on Ireland’s highest rated television programme, The Late Late Show in 1987.

Identifying a market niche and fulfilling it with an ingenious product solution has become synonymous with how we have diversifed and grown our business.

Our CEO, John F. Concannon has become known for his philanthropic work.  An appearance on RTE’s “The Secret Millionaire” demonstrated his generosity and greatly benefited “Pieta House” a charity for the prevention of suicide and self-harm.

A strong believer in social responsibility John was heavily involved with the establishment of Pieta House West.

We are proud to employ over 520+ enthusiastic and dedicated individuals – all passionate about bringing innovative solutions to life and serving our international customers.
