45th Anniversary of the Company

Home / News / 45th Anniversary of the Company

Buttimer Engineering is celebrating its forty fifth anniversary this year. Launching in 1978, a family owned engineering company continues to serve top-quality solutions. From its headquarters in Tipperary, Ireland, Buttimer Engineering serves clients in Ireland, the UK and Poland and beyond. 

E. Buttimer & Company was founded in 1978 by Mr. Edward Buttimer, who had previously worked for Dairygold and M.F. Kent in the Irish agricultural sector.  The company originally served in the Irish dairy industry before broadening its capabilities into wider agri-industry, mining pharmaceuticals, power generation and infrastructure sectors.

Buttimer Engineering has grown into an international engineering company; while it serves an array of industries our core competencies have remained the same: an expertise in the handling of bulk products, and fabrication of high-quality steel structures and equipment.

Today, the Owner & Chief Executive Officer is Fergal Buttimer, Eddie’s son, who took charge of the company after Eddie’s retirement in 2012. Buttimer Engineering have built a strong reputation over more than four decades for high-quality solutions and strong customer relationships. A significant majority of the company’s projects each year come from repeat clients. Buttimer aims to work with clients to always deliver the right solution; our success is built on the success of our customers.

We would like to thank our customers, distributors, suppliers and of course our employees who have helped and been devoted to the company amongst these years.

We look forward to celebrate the next coming years together!
