ABOUT JACKSON METALS
WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO.
WHAT WE ACHIEVED.
Stanley Jackson operated as a sole trader in 1992 from rented premises in Castlebar carrying out general engineering for local industry. Today Jackson Engineering Ltd operates from its own purpose built factory of 30,000sq.ft. at Moneen Road, Castlebar, Co. Mayo.
Jackson Engineering provides a range of engineering services to the construction, agricultural, forestry, industrial, environmental and aquacultural sectors and can design, engineer, fabricate and install a variety of solutions for these sectors including award-winning prototype development.
Jackson Engineering Ltd has evolved to higher technology in fabrication area to overhead cranes and special purpose, heavy-duty material handling. We have developed a family of heavy-duty overhead cranes, a number of which have been exported to UK & France.
As a Heavy Lifting Solutions Provider, the innovativeness of the M.D., supported by the design team have created other material handling products. The main success, the “Heavy Lift Loading Frame” developed and produced at present for the Pre-cast Concrete industry allows effortless “on and off loading” of product or indeed any other modular system that has to be delivered to site, awarding the client with improved logistics, site management and profits.
One of our many satisfied customers, John Keegan @ Keegan Quarries says:
“We are now regularly using 92 of Jacksons Loading Frames and have been very impressed with the savings in time associated with the distribution of our panels.
We have also improved the efficiency of each load as the adjustable supports on top of the Frames allow us to maximise the use of space for each journey.”

SED Awards for Excellence Concrete Innovation 2006
2006 National Event for Construction UK for Heavy Lift Loading Frame. The health & safety gains available from Jackson Engineering Cranes' Heaving Lift Loading Frame carried it to the winning spot. Leaving the loaded frames on site means the delivery driver is out of any danger and earning money on other jobs - unloading the frames only when the products are needed cuts down on handling and possible damage. The vote was unanimous.
