About Us

Prenco started operations in Skibbereen, West Cork, Ireland in 1975. In those days we were part of the German multinational company Deutsche Star and were originally known as The Starball Retainer Company, subsequently changed to Starball Linear Systems.

Over the years our German parent company changed ownership, becoming part of Bosch Rexroth who in turn are part of the huge and famous worldwide Bosch conglomerate. In 2005, a management buyout made us a private independent Irish owned company and the name Prenco came into being. Over the years, Prenco has built an enviable reputation for the quality of work and rapid service we provide.

We have a team of highly trained engineers with many years of service and have always invested in new state-of the-art equipment as the years have progressed, allowing us to meet the most demanding of customers’ needs.

In our premises at Skibbereen, we produce a large range of precision pressed, turned and milled parts as well as a very extensive range of complete ball transfer units (link to catalog). Please contact us to provide a competitive quotation for your requirements.

We are accredited to the international standard ISO 9001:2015 for our Quality Management System (link to certificate). In recognition of our responsibilities to the world we live in, we are also accredited to the international standard ISO 14001:2015 for our Environmental Management System (link to certificate).
