Claremorris-based Malone Farm Machinery (Malone FM) was today the prestigious ‘InterTradeIreland FUSION Project Exemplar’, which was presented this year to only five companies in total across the island. The ‘Project Exemplar’ award recognises exceptionally high levels of innovation and collaboration between a firm, their graduate and an academic as part of the InterTradeIreland FUSION programme.
Malone FM is a young dynamic company with a commitment to innovation and creativity in the agricultural sector. Founded in 1999, the company manufactures a wide range of agricultural products including self-loading wagons, post drivers, toppers, log splitters and mowers, operating from its 55,000 sq ft premises. The SME works closely with farmers, the 'end users' of products, in order to understand their needs and requirements.
The FUSION project involved Malone FM partnering with the InnoTech Centre of South West College, Enniskillen with the support of InterTradeIreland graduate, John Sweeney. John worked for Malone FM for the 18 month duration of the project, which was completed in January 2015, and has since been offered a role as a design engineer in the R&D department with the company.
