Company History

Founded in 1830, in the bustling port city of Limerick, by the mid-19th century McMahons was a flourishing business involved in cooperage, manufacturing, and sawmilling. From its earliest days, McMahons had been a major importer of timber materials to support its various activities.
In the early part of the 20th century, the company grew to become the largest timber supplier in the country. Later, McMahons widened its focus to include all building materials used by the construction industry.
In recent years, the further expansion of the company included the acquisition of Francis Speight, a large timber importer in the Republic of Ireland, as well as Robert Keyes, a builder’s merchant in Northern Ireland.
Today, McMahons builders providers has grown to become one of the largest independent builder’s providers in Ireland, with a network of 11 stores nationwide as well as a Truss Manufacturing plant and 3 Hardwood & Sheet Material branches.
Commited to the local community 
McMahons is committed to supporting the local community and is a strong believer in the importance of community cohesion and spirit.
Over the last number of years, McMahons has proactively supported community based projects on a local and national level via our store network.  This support is evidenced through our support for local sports clubs and charity events, as well as our support of training programmes for groups within local communities.
We have implemented numerous projects and initiatives over the years under our McMahons in the Community endeavors.  For example, we have just renewed our sponsorship of the Limerick Community Games.  This voluntary organisation has been at the heart of every community in Ireland for almost 50 years. In a time when communities seem to be disbanding this organisation is one of the fabrics that hold it together.
We support this organisation on a financial level but also through employee involvement. We have an active presence at the numerous events held throughout the year and our staff volunteer when required. Our senior management can also be seen presenting medals at presentations throughout the year. 
From a training perspective, we work with initiatives such as the Limerick youth service and government employee training programmes to offer people the chance to gain work experience and improve their career prospects in the future.
