Nugent Engineering is the largest trailer and machinery manufacturer in Ireland. Starting from humble beginnings in 1985, with the manufacturing of agricultural products and selling of cattle handling equipment to the Irish market. Founder Sean Nugent designed and manufactured the agricultural machinery. Creating a distribution network throughout Ireland within 5 years of the founding date. The product mix developed to agricultural implements, driven through a demand for strong, robust machinery.
The family business continued to expand, creating a wide range of Commercial and Livestock trailers to export markets. The Nugent family take pride in their agricultural roots, maintaining the location of their original site with a strong connection to the local community.
In 2017 Nugent opened a purpose built, state of the art trailer assembly facility. Allowing the company to move from a static build to three fully fledged production lines. This was followed in 2019 by a modern 3,700 sq ft office development and a 10,000 sq ft plate shop extensions with brand new laser cutting facilities. 2020 saw major site developments take place with the construction of a 8,000 sq ft fabrication facility which has the capacity for 20 fabricators.
Sustained growth across Ireland, UK and a large export market in Europe has been due to the superior build quality of Nugent, as well as the company’s commitment to innovation and continuous product development across the entire range. Nugent are committed to investing in the latest technology and machinery to give you the most advanced, cost effective solutions in design, fabrication and manufacturing.
