Wayne Elliott Engineering was established by Wayne Elliott four years ago to meet what he felt was a market for Refuse Body Parts, Passenger lifts (mobility) and Water (Pumps-Drainage).
The progressive company is committed to innovation and the latest technology to continue to deliver quality products to their ever expanding list of satisfied customers.
Under the guidance of Managing Director Wayne Elliott, the ever burgeoning company boasts an impressive track record of both quality and continuous growth in the market.
“I saw a market for refuse vehicle parts and repairs and decided to go for it,”explained Wayne who started out as an apprentice mechanic with CIE and Bus Eireann back in 1994.
As already mentioned, there are three strings to Wayne Elliott Engineering Ltd's bow and Wayne is proud of the reputation which the fledgling company has built up in just four years since it was established in 2012.
“I have over 20 years extensive experience in all these fields at various times in my career. From being a heavy goods vehicle mechanic in Bus Eireann to a Senior Service Engineer in Selwood pumps and a mobility field engineer for Ratcliff/ Ricon passenger lifts and emergency vehicles.”
Wayne Elliott Engineering Ltd acts as a stable for some of the top names in their respective markets.
Their waste section is a supplier of waste collection equipment parts (80% Ireland) and technical support, supplying mechanical, electrical and pneumatics parts.
They carry over 4,000 parts on the shelf and run a mobile van which travels nationwide, covering the 32 counties on a weekly run.

Wayne Elliott Engineering Ltd's focus on superb customer care and attention to detail has allowed them to establish a firm foothold in their respective markets.

Looking ahead of the future, Wayne concluded: “These are three strong growing areas of commerce in the Irish economy that I believe will continue to help our company prosper.
“There will always be waste and therefore there will always be a need for waste and lift devices. Unfortunately, there will always be mobility issues too. We specialise in three unique industries.”
And before we finished talking, Wayne was keen to thank all those who have helped make the business what it is today: “I would like to thank family, staff, friends and customer who support us every day. I would not have been able to do this without my wife Lorraine who has put up with early mornings, late nights, weekends and many phone calls over last number of years.”
