Eamonn quickly established a reputation under the umbrella of Haven Engineering and in 1993 the Kilgallons bought Celbridge Hire and amalgamated the two companies to form Haven Hire. At the time, there were five hire companies in Naas during the boom and now Haven Hire is the only one remaining. And the reason for that success?
