Ireland's longest established structural steel fabricators and steel tipper body builder
Thompsons of Carlow is Ireland's longest established engineering company specialising in structural steelwork, bridges, marine structures, motorway gantries and general construction. In 2005 we moved into a new 40,000 square foot production facility where advanced methods of production are aided by CNC machinery and 3D computer modelling.
Within the facility we have a capacity to handle single units up to 40 tonnes and can automatically shot blast structures up to 2.5m deep. Thompsons have constructed the majority of the steel bridges erected in Ireland over the last decade and have worked for many of the countries leading contractors and clients. The company aims to provide high quality projects in a safe construction industry so as to ensure that targets of both programme and budget are achieved.
Towards the Future
One thing which Thompsons has never done is stand still, nor has it ever baulked at meeting new challenges.
Before anything, Thompsons is a company that invests heavily in its future. Investing in every aspect of our operation - machine tools, production facilities, design technologies and, most important of all, people. As a result, their products are truly 'leading edge'. They set the standards for tipper bodybuilding as a whole, whether for innovation, manufacturing quality, operating versatility or low cost of ownership. Added to which, their product range has never been wider.
