Meet the Team
Ronan O'Daly - Managing Director
2006 to date Managing Director Blade Runner Cutting Equipment Ltd
I have worked in the printing industry since 1976. I began my career working in the Smurfit group as an industrial engineer. In 1984 I began working for the Miller Group in Dublin, who were agents and distributors of Heidelberg printing machines in Ireland.
My position was Sales Manager, responsible for a 5 million euro a year target. In 2006 I left Millers to set up Blade Runner, having recognised an opportunity in the blade business in Ireland. Since 2006 we have grown the business from €0 to 750K with a customer base of 925. Blade Runner operates in all 32 counties of Ireland and have even exported to Egypt.
Leah O'Daly - Director
In 2009 I began working with Blade Runner as the business was expanding rapidly. My role within the organisation is financial management. I produce management accounts in conjunction with our accountant every quarter. I am also responsible for bank reconciliation, debtor & creditor management. All financial aspects of the business are channeled through me.
The Blade Runner Team
Blade Runner employs 2 engineers, 1 mechanical and 1 electrical. Having an engineering division closes the loop in our offering to print customers, in that we can now supply a new blade, resharpen that blade and service the machine it goes into.
