Tommy Griffith is a successful Co. Mayo based entrepreneur who established PEL Waste Reduction Equipment in his hometown of Balla in 2005. Educated locally at Balla National School & later at Balla Secondary School, Tommy initially pursued a career in product development & latterly sales within agricultural & electronic industries after attaining his mechanical engineering degree at GMIT, Galway. Tommy has subsequently gone on to be nominated for the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award – Emerging Category in 2009 and in 2016 was recognised as the Virginia Gallagher Mayo Person of the Year for his contributions to business and wider society.

This product development experience coupled with hands-on sales knowledge encouraged him to set up his own business. The ability to see the positive in what others considered a problem led to PEL Waste Reduction  Equipment’s first product. A conversation with a

Letterkenny nightclub owner about the expense & hassle associated with the storage & disposal of waste glass bottles inspired the creation of a glass bottle crusher.

The product portfolio has since evolved to encompass bin compactors & balers targeted at generating significant customer savings on their waste disposal costs. The latest product development is the SolarStreetBinTM – a solar powered IoT compactor litter bin designed to save customers of the total cost of their litter collections.

PEL Waste Reduction Equipment now serves a global customer base via offices in Ireland & the UK and through a network of international distributors. The company is recognized as the leading innovator in the waste reduction industry spearheaded by the patented ‘Jaws’ range of waste glass bottle crushers and the recently added SolarStreetBin™.
