Celebrating 34 years in business this year, Kelcro Transport Cork continues to stand the test of time.
Celebrating 34 years in business this year, Kelcro Transport in Cork continues to stand the test of time even in the difficult climate. Company co-director Donny Kelleher spoke to Irish Trucker about the business he started all those years ago and what they’re up to at the moment.
Based in Millstreet, Co. Cork, since 1977 Kelcro Transport is been working hard to build an excellent reputation in a very competitive environment.
Founder and co-director Donny Kelleher has been the main driving-force behind the company that has enjoyed a strong business relationship with Mid-Cork Pallets & Packaging, which is owned by Sean Lehane and is the current leading manufacturer of pallets in Ireland. Through their dealings with the Clondrohid-based company, Kelcro Transport has been able to build itself into the company it is today.
“We’re established since 1977 and we now have 12 trucks on the road,” explained Donny.
“I suppose my position is co-director, with Sean Cronin as the other co-director here.
“Around 80 per cent of our work here is from Mid-Cork Pallets. We draw finished pallets for them and bring in their raw materials from the timber companies. They have a premises in Dunboyne in county Meath and we haul back and forth from there also.”
Donny describes the haul up to Dunboyne as “only up the road” for him and his drivers, who have surely covered almost every mile in Ireland at this stage given Kelcro Transport’s lifespan.
However, the real journey for Donny has been from the very beginning when he started up his own business with just one truck and a borrowed trailer. If times are tough at present, then a modern young businessman could only imagine what it was like to try and get a business off the ground in an era that was, arguably, tougher than now for new born businesses.
