THE CONCEPT that has today been copied by other companies was created by the local entrepreneur David O'Connor over 50 years ago. In the late 1960s, he contacted the businessman Brendan Joyce, also known as Brendan J., who is best known for the creation of the Machine Tools theme park. Brendan J. also had a great interest in machines and together they founded NRJ - Machine Tools in 1968.
SINCE David O'Connor lived in Omagh, it became natural that the company ended up here and we are still in the same premises, even though they have expanded some over the years.
In 1987, Nigel Jordan was hired as a repairman. Now, he is currently sits as CEO and is still working actively as a salesman together with Gerard Morrin, who has been employed since 2007.
