Leonard Engineering (Monaghan) Limited is a leading manufacturer of structural steel in Ireland and the UK with a state of the art fabrication facility in Monaghan town. We have been operating for over 38 years and have grown from a small company to what is currently a large and well known structural steel company throughout Ireland and the UK.
The company came from humble origins when we started back in 1976 as a manufacturer of digger buckets and general engineering works. Our first big job was in 1977 when we manufactured our first portal frame building for St Macartan’s College in Monaghan. In 2002, major reconstruction was carried out at the premises. The workshop was re-equipped with modern steel fabrication machinery to deal with the evolving market and demand for large scale structural steel fabrication.
Our drawing office was re-equipped in 1998 and uses both Strucad and Tekla drafting software which are directly connected to the Ficep 903 Saw & Drill Line, the Voortman Plate Machine and the Voortman Saw. This enables the speedy transfer of information between the drawing office and production area.
For a number of years Leonard Engineering concentrated on refurbishments of existing factory buildings as well as serving the manufacturing industry in our local area, but since the overhaul of our facilities, we have been working all over Ireland and are currently working in the UK. This expansion of the business at home and abroad has led to the creation of new jobs and opportunities within the company.
We have worked on a variety of sites in Ireland and the UK, both erecting steel for new buildings as well as making alterations to existing structures. We have also completed some unusual jobs such as manufacturing the basket that is used for cleaning the Spire in Dublin’s O’Connell St and designing, manufacturing and installing the seating for Google’s auditorium in its Dublin headquarters.
The company has a reputation for innovation regarding complex jobs and finding solutions for tricky engineering problems. Although we have a state of the art facility and modern machinery, our most valuable asset by far is our dedicated, well trained and long serving staff that like nothing better than a new challenge. This strong competent team of problem solvers take pride in doing jobs to the best standard that is possible.
