APW Feature Walls & Electric Fireplaces offer a full bespoke carpentry and joinery service. Based in Tallaght, they work in Dublin and the surrounding areas.
“I have always loved making stuff and with carpentry,I fell in love with it (carpentry) and it runs in my blood since I did my apprenticeship in cabinet making and courses in furniture design,” said Aaron O’Broin.
“I started the business due to not being able to afford my now wife’s engagement ring. I worked Monday to Friday and then I took on an extra job at the weekend to purchase the engagement ring. I continued doing work on the side of my weekday job until I decided to go out on my own.
“I always dreamt of having my own workshop one day and now I have that and it’s incredible,” he enthused.
“Over the years I’ve built up my tool kit which then resulted in me being able to go out on my own and start my own business. When I’d finish a job, I would go off and buy myself a new tool as a reward.
“I’ve been working for myself for just under two years and the business is flying thankfully. I took over the showroom a year ago and it was shut down again as quick with the restrictions but since reopening, it has been non-stop. I opened the showroom with my business partner Woitec from EcoFireplace.ie.
Since we put our heads together we grew both businesses together because without his fireplaces I wouldn’t have such a good business! added Mr O’Broin.
“My work is mainly word of mouth and I can almost guarantee more work coming in from a job when I’ve finished it. I making doing something different, I can design jobs with a computer package but everything we do is done step by step with the customer. I absolutely love what I do,” Concluded Aaron O’Broin.
