Cab specialists to double workforce
Building on the success of its cab and component manufacturing business, C&G Engineering Ltd recently won a number of new contracts which will see the company grow substantially.
Based in Clane, Co Kildare, C&G Engineering was established in 1977 as an agricultural tractor and machinery dealership before diversifying into cab manufacture in 1985.
The firm has recently won numerous product design and development contracts which will see the company's turnover triple and employment grow from 12 to 25 employees by the end of the year.
Company director William Ganly says C&G's development programme, can-do attitude and incredible staff are largely responsible for the company's growth.
Back in 2010 C&G won a contract with AGCO to manufacture replacement doors for the Massey Ferguson 300 series. These were sold as 'original parts' through the Massey Ferguson dealer network worldwide.
Incredibly, C&G has just manufactured its 2,000th MF 300-series for AGCO since winning that contract in 2010, a substantial achievement for a small Irish firm.
The firm continues to manufacture complete cabs for popular Massey Ferguson and Ford heritage models.
The firm also developed and built cabs for a huge variety of other equipment too, such as forklifts, dumpers, grass machinery and even boats.
