For most people, JFC in Tuam is Ireland’s best-known agricultural plastic company. Nearly every farmer has at least one of their products.

JFC celebrates 30 years in business this week. Founder and managing director John Concannon says the journey has been more about people and innovation than plastics. Privately owned by the Concannon family and key personnel, the accounts are not published, but he tells the Irish Farmers Journal “the agri and pipe business has a turnover of €50m”.
