BMG was founded in October 1985 by brothers Brian and Tony McGowan at the site of the old Marine Ballroom in Bundoran.
Neither men came from a hardware background; Brian spent years abroad on construction projects in the Middle East while Tony spent 16 years travelling around the world on cargo ships with Irish Shipping Ltd starting as a Cadet and finally sailing as Captain.
Both had a keen interest in DIY projects. Looking back, they feel that not having experience was a help as they listened to what their customers wanted – an ethos which still persists in the business today.
In 1988 BMG moved to Main Street and in 2007 moved to its present location, a purpose built premises on a 3 acre site on the outskirts of town, just off the Bundoran/Ballyshannon bypass.
Today BMG employs over 30 full-time and 10 part-time staff. The original founders are still involved and have been joined by Joseph Mc Gloin in his role as Trade & Commercial Director and Tony’s son Bernard who looks after the Retail shop business.
