Background & History
In 1986, Eamonn Kilgallon, a fitter by trade, saw an opening in the market for plant hire and sales of construction plant. Eamonn quickly established a reputation under the umbrella of Haven Engineering and in 1993 the Kilgallons seized an opportunity when they bought Celbridge Hire and amalgamated the two companies to form Haven Hire.
The company’s deep roots in the machinery industry is one of the keys to its success. We have since expanded into Maynooth and Naas, so we became Haven Hire. Haven Hire had been operating successfully in Celbridge since Eamonn Kilgallon started the business in 1993. Time for expansion then started with the opening of depots in Maynooth followed by Naas
