Established in 1990, Archway Products Ltd. started life manufacturing and selling farm machinery. But in the late 1990's, the founder of the company, Liam McNamee, was troubled by the state of disrepair of the roads in Ireland. He thought there that here has to be a better way to maintain roads as the traditional methods were simply not working. Being an engineer and inventor, he set about developing the Roadmaster SIP unit that provided an effective, safe and although he didn't know it at the time, the most carbon efficient method of repairing road surface defects.
