Based in Dublin, Ireland, in 2011, and created by a talented, self-taught, entrepreneur, the EireEcoRings business began as a hobby. A friend threw down the challenge of making him a wedding band. A year later, orders were coming in so fast that an additional worker had to be hired. Then, after fierce demand, it grew to a full time business. For 12 months, vigorous testing allowed the method of construction to be perfected before the initial rings were released to the public under the EireEcoRings brand.
EireEcoRings prides their rings on being different from the average ring. With a minimal impact on the environment, each ring is handmade using age-old techniques making every piece unique – just like the recipient. Whether for a special occasion or a special someone, all of the EireEcoRings styles come complete with a one year guarantee to give the buyer complete piece of mind with their purchase.
Beginning as a hobby, EireEcoRings has grown in only two years to a successful business. In addition to the owner, one full time staff member and one part-time employee are now on staff. The persistent problem is that without additional staff, orders for this popular product are being turned away!
Since the business started out as a hobby, the equipment purchased was for “hobby level” production of rings. Heavy duty equipment is needed to increase production. The demand is already there, the equipment needed to fill the supply is what is needed. Along with additional industrial grade production equipment, additional staff is needed.
With a certain Christmas rush looming, the biggest challenge currently is to fill the current orders with the non industrial equipment before the bigger Christmas orders start pouring in to the website. According to the owner, “I have…3 vital pieces of equipment [that] have broken down on me this week.”
With the unique challenge that every business wants to have, EireEcoRings is urgently in need of better equipment and additional staff to fill the overflowing demand for their unique “Earth friendly” rings. Sales ranging from one end of the world to the other, the website boasts a 100% feedback on all online sales. Current demand for the rings is over 100 per month all over the world and expected to grow even more.
