New Irish representative sees first glimmers of hope

New Irish representative sees first glimmers of hope Thin kerf sawing pioneer Wood-Mizer has appointed its band saw blades service manager, Stephen Brennan 36, to represent all its band sawmills and timber processing equipment sales in Ireland.

Located in Ballinare, county Mayo, he has provided a band blade sharpening, setting and sales service to Ireland's 500-plus Wood-Mizer owners for three years.

Stephen Brennan owns five of the company's sawmills and operates a small-to-medium version himself, sawing boards and producing furniture for gardens, parks, estates. His larger version is permanently available for hire and his three smallest are rented continuously by a joinery firm.

Well aware of Ireland's straitened circumstances he reports that nevertheless he is enjoying healthy interest and enquiries from potential customers, despite a scarcity of finance. He adds:

"Irish timber frame building has ceased.

"However, garden furniture, pallets, wooden flooring, general fencing, posts & rails in Ireland as well as picket fencing for the UK are picking up."

Since his appointment he has sold three mills to timber flooring specialists and one other to a log cabins builder. At the time of going to press he has a dozen "very interested" potential buyers. Wood-Mizer's band saw blades are also doing well in Ireland, reports Stephen Brennan.
