In this Buildings focus, we go a little larboard of acreage to accompany you a new avant-garde accouterment branch and abutting showroom.
Located a abbreviate ambit from the Rock of Cashel, Breen’s Farm Machinery’s newly-developed armpit makes for absorbing viewing.
Before we booty a attending at the new build, Breen’s Farm Accouterment – which is now ran by managing administrator Conor Breen – was accustomed by Conor’s parents Philip and Teresa in 1977.
The ancestors aggregation started out by importing and exporting all types of acclimated tractors and bulb and machinery; however, a lot has happened aback then.
After confined his time as an amateur mechanic, Conor abutting the aggregation in 1994. Now, the aggregation is home to the Claas and Takeuchi franchises, forth with stocking a advanced ambit of new and acclimated machinery.
In 2013, with an eye on the future, the accommodation was fabricated to hire a additional armpit – amid in Ennis, Co. Clare – to accommodated the needs of its growing chump base. In 2015, Breen’s Farm Accouterment confused to a greenfield armpit in Ennis and a new annex was developed.
Speaking to AgriLand aback we visited the Cashel armpit recently, Conor said: “When you accept a blooming site, it’s a lot easier to architecture and build.
“You can body what you appetite and the way you appetite it. You can body with the approaching in mind, admitting at this armpit [Cashel], we were alive on a architecture that was originally congenital in the 1970s. And, we had to assignment with planning as well.”
Before the architecture commenced, Conor and Aidan Kelly from ADPS explored abounding options. However, he was bound with his account due to planning permission.
He said: “Originally, we looked at actually animadversion the absolute architecture and amalgam a aboveboard assemblage agnate to what we accept in Ennis.
“But, planning restrictions wouldn’t acquiesce that; so we had to assignment with the arrangement that we had and that’s area Aidan’s ability came into play.
“Where the new food are now was the aboriginal branch and area the exhibit is now was an continued branch that was put on in the aboriginal 1980s; aggregate had to access and avenue from the front,” he added.
The new six-bay assemblage stands at 18m in breadth and 23m in amplitude and is abutting to the absolute building. The branch and new abundance absorb this space. A new canteen was additionally congenital for the staff.Click to enlarge image
This new architecture allows tractors and machines to access the branch via the rear of the architecture and the exhibit can be accessed through the advanced roller door.
When genitalia and accessories are delivered they are accustomed through the rear of the architecture anon into the new abundance room. This, Conor says, has helped with efficiency.
“The calibration of genitalia that we accept to backpack now compared to what had to backpack in the accomplished is massive. 40 years ago you would fit all the genitalia in one store; now we accept a 100ft by 40ft store, so we accept the genitalia there for bodies aback they charge them at analytical times.”
Continuing, Conor said: “The capital acumen we developed this armpit was because aback you anticipate of the admeasurement of tractor in the 1970s – conceivably a Massey Ferguson 135 which were actual accepted in the 1970s – you could fit 15-20 of those into our old workshop.
“But today, one tractor is about 2.5-3 times as big. So, we had to amend the scale. It was additionally to do with modernisation.”
Conor absitively to install cloistral bedding and cloistral roller doors and he is the captivated with this decision.
“With the balmy summer it was actually brilliant; it was nice and cool. And today [December 19, 2018] it’s 6º and it’s not algid in the workshop. That has accepted to be a abundant advance and I’m blessed that I absitively to go for it.”
One affair that is actual axiomatic aback you airing into the branch is the bulk of accustomed light. This is provided via two skylights per bay. The bedding and walls are additionally white to accession the brightness; bogus lights are additionally dotted throughout the structure.
In addition, balk perlons – that were amid in the old branch – were replaced with galvenised perlons to accommodate a added able finish.
Commenting on the old situation, he said: “Although the old branch was small, it was affectionate of like Ryanair with the luggage, we abstruse how to backpack it. You could fit about 10 tractors in it comfortably, but the botheration was that it was too narrow.
“We alone had one attenuated door, so if we had one tractor at the back, we had to move the one at the advanced to get it out. Admitting – with the new branch – we accept a average lane and it’s apparent so cipher parks in the way.
“In the workshops, two swinging-jib cranes (pillar-jib cranes) will be amid throughout the assemblage with 30ft accoutrements – that accept a 2t lift accommodation – for putting on loaders or for putting on hitches of diggers,” he added.
Health and assurance is taken actual actively and aggregate has its own abode in the branch with appointed assignment benches and all the decay oil is pumped from appropriate trays so that there is no oil on the ground.
Facilities and the future
Between the Cashel armpit and the operation in Ennis over 30 bodies are employed. These positions ambit from mechanics to auction cadre to barter drivers.
As already mentioned, a new canteen was congenital for the staff. In addition, new ablution accessories were additionally installed at assorted locations.
“It’s to accord the lads in the branch the abundance of a nice alive ambiance and that is one of the key factors why we fabricated the developments.
“There were a lot of changes that we put in with an eye on the future. We put in a computer room; all our tractors accept telematics, so we can adviser the tractors remotely.
“All the mechanics accept their own laptops and tools; it’s a big aberration from area we were 10 years ago aback we had one laptop amid 11 lads in the workshop.
“I durably accept that if you don’t try to accumulate modernising, you’re activity backwards.
“We accept put a lot of money into the accouterments for the oils, lubricants and air; anniversary bay is attainable which makes it easier and added adequate for the staff. It additionally speeds up the process.”
While the new exhibit was not allotment of the antecedent plan, Conor is blessed with what this adds to the business. In addition, to the appropriate of the building, planning permission has aloof been awarded for a new backyard to affectation tractors.
“I achievement to get that done as anon as the acclimate dries up in the new year and that will accessible up the accomplished complex,” he concluded.RELATED STORIESBuildings focus: Father and son ‘build’ for the approaching in Co. Wicklow
