Bay was established in 2004 to provide service and technical support to the Electronics Manufacturing Industry. Our business model has evolved from being a company who just provides engineering service and technical support to a business partner and solutions provider for a few key manufacturing companies.
We work closely with our business partners to help them gain a competitive manufacturing advantage in areas which include Staff Solutions, Preventative Maintenance Management, Process Optimisation, Cost Reduction, Equipment Setup & Installation and Engineering Service.
In parallel to our Preventative Maintenance programmes, we provide a service where we overhaul, rebuild and test industrial component parts, machinery and equipment at our Industrial Service Centre in Limerick.
