We are Coughlan Engineering (Tullamore) Ltd

One of Ireland’s Leading Metalwork Design & Fabrication Specialists

We have been around for fifty years and in that time the business has shown flexibility to adapt to changes in trends and demand. Originally focusing on industrial maintenance and mould making for the precast industry, key customers included Bord na Móna, ESB and Killeshal Precast Concrete.

The Company was founded by Tom Coughlan and acquired by In Granite Ltd in 1998. Since then, the Company evolved into one of the top ten architectural metalwork and sheet metal fabricators in Ireland, serving the Construction industry.

Now in its third generation of management, the Company is focused on adding further value with capital investments which augment our material processing capabilities, and through continuous product and process innovation.

Structural Metalwork Design

We are capable of taking a project from initial design stage through to full completion.

We have expertise in producing finite element analysis reports, line load and anchor bolt calculations for bespoke loading scenarios.

We produce drawings for client approval and shop drawings using 2D CAD, Solidworks and Tekla and can collaborate on clients’ Building Information Modelling platforms.

Metalwork Fabrication Capacity

Our workshop is centrally located in the Irish midlands, within easy reach of seaports and all 32 counties on the island of Ireland.

Our freehold property has 660 sqm of mild steel manufacturing, 305 sqm of dedicated stainless steel manufacturing, and 260 sqm of office space. We have dedicated in-house design staff, project manager, responsible welding coordinator, visual weld inspector, accounts staff, safety manager and directors. This scale allows us to operate four site installation crews (scalable in size) and approximately fifteen skilled manufacturing staff. We are building off very solid foundations.
