Myles Fabrications work on welding and fabrication solutions on all steel needs. Their product range includes gates, stainless steel railings, glass railings, home gym equipment, balustrades, handrails, outdoor garden furniture and on site welding services.
“The business was established in October 2020. I was working as an Operations Manager for an Interior fitout company and I got a phone call from an old colleague telling me that there was a shortage of people working in fabrication so I decided that I was going to set up my own business which was more of a hobby for the first couple of months and then in January 2021 my hobby became more real during lockdowns, I rang my boss in March 2021 telling him that my hobby was to become my business and within two weeks of that call I had to hire staff,” explained Daniel.
“The business has been hectic ever since and I think I got about an hour’s sleep in the last year! The workshop is in Ardee and we are moving into a new workshop in the next few weeks.
We work on sites all over Ireland for a couple of different contractors but the majority of our work is in Dublin.
“I genuinely love a challenge and when people come to me with an idea for a crazy couch or a rack in a house! We don’t want to be doing the same thing every day, we want a challenge every second day to keep us on our toes.
“We are hoping to get into sheet metal work which would be a bit more precise. In the next two or three years, we plan on upping our game in relation to machinery so as we can supply to pharmaceutical companies and so forth. My brother Jamie is also a Director of the company.
I’m delighted to have him come onboard with me after 18 months. Our background is in sheet metal working for Pharma so our goal is to get our feet in the door of as many big companies as possible.
“The reason I became a welder in the first place was because Jamie was leaving for Australia 10 years ago and he told me ‘ don’t do it, don’t become a welder,’ and I heard ‘become a welder,’ so I did it and I love it,” concluded Daniel.
