The McElmeel Story

Originating in a small premises in 1950, Thomas McElmeel, Father to Malachy and Grandfather to current Managing Director Conor McElmeel, opened a small garage aimed at simply repairing cars and tractors. Little did he know that when a neighbour came to him for help to drive a car although he did not have sufficient power in his legs, he would have began to build some pretty strong foundations.

70 years ago there were not any main stream options for adaptations on the market and in fact this was long before the days of the infamous three wheeled Invacar, so it didn’t take long for word to get around that Thomas was a man with a plan! Fast forward 70 years and McElmeel Mobility Services now one of the largest wheelchair accessible vehicle providers in the UK and Ireland and the No 1 adaption’s specialist in Ireland.

As the longest established company supplying vehicles for disabled drivers and passengers in the UK and Ireland (and beyond), we are passionate about our customers and we have built our reputation on customer service and innovation. We have won multiple awards over the last decade and we continue to push ourselves to improve on every level.

Managing Director Conor McElmeel said “I am very proud to be able to manage the business my Grandfather started and be part in the way it has grown. We employ around 50 people and it is important that we continue to play our part in our community. I have been around this business since I was a child and I have become obsessive about doing the right thing for our customers and our staff and committed to seeing this continue. We have a great team of great people who work very hard and I have full faith that the years to come will be even better.”

2020 brings a very busy time at McElmeel Mobility Services, attending over a dozen shows all over the UK and Ireland. Make sure to keep an eye out to make sure you don’t miss out on any of our 70th celebrations near you at some point throughout the year.
