BMG was founded in 1985 by Brian and Tony McGowan at the site of the old Marine Ballroom in the West End of Bundoran.

Neither men came from a hardware background; Brian spent years abroad on construction projects in the Middle East while Tony spent 16 years travelling around the world on cargo ships with Irish Shipping Ltd starting as a Cadet and finally sailing as Captain.

Both had a keen interest in DIY projects. Looking back, they feel that not having experience was a help as they listened to what their customers wanted - an ethos which still persists in the business.

In 1988 the business moved to Main Street and in 2007 moved to its present location, a purpose built premises on a 3 acre site on the outskirts of town, just off the Bundoran/Ballyshannon bypass.
