About Us

Founded in 2005, Irish Pressings is owned and operated by brothers Declan (Managing Director) and Brendan Ward (Production Manager).

Starting out as trained toolmakers, the Ward brothers have built an extensive portfolio of experience over the past 25 years to build upon their tool-making foundations – including experience in the area of pressed part production having worked closely with such industry leaders as Ford, General Motors, Toyota and BMW over the years.

Irish Pressings employs over 70 people at our modern production facility located along the Wild Atlantic Way in Udaras na Gaeltachta‘s Gweedore Business Park, Co.Donegal, Ireland. Irish Pressings are a local company, operating globally.

Through hard-work, dedication and a commitment to quality, Irish Pressings has become a leader in the design and manufacture of press-tools, metal stampings, machining, and welded assemblies amongst other things servicing a variety of engineering industries – most notably the automotive sector – where we supply at Tier 1 and Tier 2 level to service end customers such as Jaguar Land Rover, BMW, and Honda in the UK, mainland Europe and beyond.
