Joseph Ferry is a perfect example of the never-say-die attitude that has seen small businesses become the backbone of life in Donegal.
Joseph, from Chapel Road, Brinlack in Derrybeg once ran a hugely successful business.
That business, Euro Coach Builders, once employed 52 people at its West Donegal base.
In 2009 Joseph’s world came crashing down when market conditions and poor sales of medium-sized buses saw the company close.
Not one to rest on his laurels, Joseph launched Defog Windows at the Ideal Home Show in Dublin in April 2010.
Agents are now being set up nationwide at present with midlands and Northern Ireland, Dublin, plus England and Scotland still to be agreed.
Due to a lot of enquiries from customers regarding removing moisture and mould the company came across a product called PINGI which is rechargeable and was demonstrated by TV IRELAND AM on 20th APRIL last and is now available for online sales at www.pingi.ie or at the showroom in Knockastoller, Bunbeg where they offer steam car wash Friday and Saturday and full valet on request weekdays.
Another product that we are offering is the heat your home not the planet chimney damper.
All the products and services offered by the company is to save the customer money; example repair windows rather fit new ones while Pingi in wardrobes saves your clothes .
Fitting chimney damper your fire lasts longer and generates more heat and reduces emissions into the atmosphere.
The company also want to give something back to the local community.
On June 9th Defog Windows had an open day and raised €580 for Donegal hospice and €560 for IONAD LAE Gweedore.
The company thanked all those who helped on the day especially the musicians who travelled from Tory island and local people who made it possible .
