Chris Finnegan 

Finnegan Steel Fabrications Ltd was established by Chris Finnegan in 1984. Chris learned his trade while working at Smedley’s in the UK. After returning home in the early 1970’s Chris then worked for Hino for a number of years before the last great recession seen him out of work.

Starting in the back garden making gates for friends and neighbours Chris was soon in need of more space.
So in 1984 he set up ‘Chris Finnegan Wrought Iron’.

As well as being the face of the company on site, Gary is also the creative force within the company with ‘steel art’ being a passion. At Finnegan Steel Fabrications we very rarely have to return to site and even rarer do we have a complaint. Gary and our site crew ‘do it right’.
