At Keltech we have been a trusted partner to globally recognised OEM’s for over 25 years. For the past 15 years we have supplied ROPS & FOPS approved overhead guards and cabins to our OEM customer base whom manufacture machinery for the harshest of environments. Our Cabins are designed and manufactured with futuristic appeal, using our own bespoke curved arrow head profile, curved front windscreens along with sliding or hinged doors as desired to allow the operator have maximum visibility and security.
Did you know we can design and manufacture from concept? Or alternatively reverse engineer from a physical sample or manufacture an existing cabin from customer drawings. Our flexible approach to manufacturing allows us serve both high and low volume demands.
Here is how it works:
Keltech offer design support at concept stage or on mature product, ensuring a best fit for purpose solution.
Design Implementation support is including but not limited to:
- Concept Sketching
- Concept 3D drawing to scale allowing the OEM to virtually fit the proposed cabin/cabins to their machine
- Hardware/Component selection. Keltech have robust global supply chain partners related to Cabins
- Keltech provide ongoing support during the cabin’s life, with the capabilities to tailor individual cabins to specific customer requirements
Development and Engineering
Keltech’s dedicated NPI team, through the use of the latest version of solidworks 3D, will develop the working drawings package and bring your Cabin to life
Our dedicated Cabins and Overhead Guards Engineering department come with a wealth of experience. They are customer and industry focused insuring that solutions are tailored to best suit the needs of our clients.
Prototyping and Industry Standard Testing
Keltech provide top quality prototypes and samples in agreed timelines and on budget.
Our Prototype team provide product with absolute dimensional accuracy allowing the OEM fully evaluate the cabin in complete confidence.
Full ROPS & FOPS accreditation provided on final design prior to serial production.
APQP « Advanced Product Quality Planning »
Keltech supply a large portfolio of new parts to globally recognisable OEM brands on an ongoing basis, hence an existing robust and competent APQP system is in place.
Keltech can, if required, provide PPAP & PFMEA documentation on all new Cabins and Over-Head Guards

Cabins are built through specifically designed Jigs & Fixtures ensuring a consistent standard and quality
Cabins are Pre-treated and Painted to the very highest standards or as we like to call it ‘Surface Engineering’
Cabins are assembled by our highly skilled and trained operators using robust SOP documentation specifically designed for the cabin variation
Cabins are assembled and fitted with agreed sub components; locks, hinges, acoustic foam, wiring, wiper systems, glass, seats, steering controls, etc.
Cabins are built to a fully integrated state or a semi integrated state pendant on customer requirement

Our New Normal. 1st Female Production Team Leader.
It’s no secret that as a contract manufacturer with a core competency in sheet metal fabrication Keltech have traditionally operated in a male-dominated industry. But recently, this is becoming an outdated and inaccurate stereotype.
2021 Leaving Cert student says “Don’t follow the crowd, let the crowd follow you.”
In Ireland 2 out of every 3 leaving cert students now opt to enter higher education. Anecdotally we can all identify with the stories of those individuals who have drifted into courses that in hindsight were never a fit.
Welding- Automation & Craft Combine at Keltech
For over a decade global supply chains have struggled with a deficit in welding capacity. However the extreme market volatility caused by COVID-19 has now suddenly accelerated the issue to crisis point. The delta between demand for welded products and available welding capacity is now one of the largest issues facing industry in 2022.
