About Us

History

NGS was founded by Norman G. Stafford in 1986 in his home garage, focusing on metal fabrication. As the company grew, it expanded into many areas of metal manufacture and installation and in the early 2000’s built a very strong process engineering team.

Throughout the 00’s, the company became the chosen supplier for Dell to develop, manufacture and install two complete production assembly lines for their plant in Limerick and subsequently eight assembly lines in their Poland operation. The success of the solutions developed for Dell, opened many other doors for NGS Products to supply a number of other industries including life sciences.

In 2012, there was a decision to expand the operation into Cleanroom Environments and the company has since developed a very successful clean room division specialising in the design, specification and construction of modular clean rooms, pharmaceutical grade cleanrooms and other controlled environments.

Now at the start of the 20’s we are well established and trusted suppliers of fabrications, robotic solutions and process automation for intravenous product manufacturing and packaging. We work with our IV manufacturing clients in over 15 global locations including Plants in Europe, USA, Puerto Rico, Costa Rica, South America, Canada and Australia.
