Sean Meade established the company that bears his full name in 1983, but it traces its history - along with sister company Meade Crane Hire - back to 1953, when Paddy Meade established Irish Tank and Pipeline, which became Meade Plant in 1975, followed by both Sean Meade & sons and Meade Crane hire.
