Glenfort Timber Engineering ready for Hundegger boost
Glenfort Timber Engineering, Ireland’s premier timber engineering company provides an extensive range of structural timber products and services and is about to take possession of their Hundegger Robot Drive.
Glenfort have been growing in the timber engineering industry for over 50 years as a third-generation family business, and pride themselves in being Ireland’s full mass timber solution company. Now under the stewardship of Cathal and Colm Campbell.
Glenfort’s capabilities are soon to be expanded. In November they will receive a Hundegger Robot Drive machine. The Hundegger machine will enable them to process their glulam and green oak projects in-house in its impressive ‘all timber structure factory’ in Dunganon Northern Ireland.
“Cathal and Colm have worked hard as young guys to expand the portfolio and services of Glenfort,” says Hundegger’s Chris Osborne. “The factory is a work of ‘structural timber art’ and must be visited. The employment of the Hundegger Robot Drive working with CAD Work software, will enable Glenfort to service the expanding Irish and UK markets for structural timber projects. Hundegger are very pleased and honoured to be supporting Glenfort’s ambitions.”
Cathal Campbell adds: “Having the support of Hundegger’s new machinery will enable Glenfort to take the next step in our manufacturing efficiency. This will support our aspirations for the future, providing leading mass timber solutions to the Irish, UK and international markets.”
Glenfort work closely with European suppliers of glulam and cross laminated timber (CLT), and French sawmills for the supply of timber for their oak structures, and feature truss business. Their services, including design, structural engineering, production and installation, assure a smooth and efficient process from start to finish.
