Steeltech Sheds Ltd Announces €5 Million Investment, 43 New Jobs for Tuam, Galway

Galway-based steel shed-manufacturers, Steeltech Sheds Ltd., announced on Tuesday a major investment of €5 million over the next three years and 43 new jobs in the next 12 months. The expansion is due to the major growth of the company domestically in the last year, following the creation of 50 Jobs in 2016 and the decision to further expand and export into the UK Market.

Headquartered in Tuam, Steeltech’s business involves the design, manufacture, delivery and installation of garden sheds, workshops, home offices, garages, garden rooms, garden studios and chalets. All products are made from steel and custom made on request.

The €5 million investment over the next three years will fund capital, people, IT, innovation, R&D and sales and marketing allowing Steeltech Sheds to scale significantly over the next five to ten years.

“This is a very exciting time for Steeltech Sheds,” Steeltech Sheds Founder and CEO Sean Brett said. “Since relocation to the new Tuam manufacturing plant in 2015, we have increased productivity by 90 percent, created 50 new jobs in 2016, and have expanded our export reach and operations into the UK and Northern Ireland market.”

“Over the last three months, we have set up sales show rooms in five locations in the UK and all manufacturing from UK sales will take please here in Tuam. Steeltech is thankful for the support Enterprise Ireland has given to date and I look forward to working with them as we expand and grow in the UK and Europe.”

Enterprise Ireland West Region Director Barry Egan said: “Enterprise Ireland has worked closely with Steeltech over the past year and seen first-hand how the company has gone from strength-to-strength in a relatively short time period. This is a great example of how a rural location like Tuam can become home to a thriving business with the drive, commitment and global ambition to create 50 local jobs within a year with over 40 more to follow.”
