We were delighted to welcome employees from our customer Fredheim Maskin to the company today and show them around our new offices and production facility.


Established in 1998, the company visited McQuaids as part of their 15 year anniversary tour. Fredheim Maskin sell and distriubute a range of machinery for the mine and quarry industries from noteable manufacturers such as Sandvik, Keestrack and Telestack. They have been distributing McQuaid rock breaker boom systems into the Scandanivian market for a number of years, and we are extremley pleased to have such a good working relationship with the company and its team.


As part of their tour of our offices and facilitys, they were shown our manufacturing and production processes.  We take great pride in the fact that as a OEM we stand out from other companies because from the preliminary design stage; through to cutting steel, presswork, fabrication, shot blasting and painting, the entire process is completed from our base here in Northern Ireland. Getting to see all of the different stages in the development and manufacture of a product is something that we are pleased to be able show our customers when they visit the factory.


Along with seeing welding, line boring and precision machining, our visitors were delighted to see one of our RB20 mobile rock breaker booms going through its final testing stages. (Find out more about the RB20 here.)


We would like to thank all at Fredheim Maskin for taking the time to visit our company, and we hope they enjoy the rest of their time in Ireland.
