About Us

Ansbro Mouldings Limited is a plaster moulding company based in Co. Carlow, although our business takes us nationwide.

We specialise in the manufacture, supply and fitting of all types of interior plaster mouldings, and are experts in the area of restoration and paint removal.

Meet James Ansbro, and his team – with over 30 years of experience honing his skills, James is a well-known Master Craftsman in the industry.

As an apprentice, James trained and gained extensive experience with some of the largest moulding companies in the industry. He learned about different styles and finishes of plasterwork, and with a keen historical interest became extremely skilled in the area of restoration and preservation of antique mouldings. After gaining industry experience, James decided to establish his own brand in the market. Ansbro Mouldings was founded in 2006, and the business along with James’ reputation for excellence quickly grew – largely through word of mouth, as one client recommended him to another.

Over time the team has grown with Maria Ansbro joining husband James in the business as Administrative Director two years later, and their children all taking active roles within the company as they grew alongside the business.

Our business may have grown, expanded and evolved over the years, but we are still a family-run business at heart. Our commitment to providing exceptional individual service to every client, alongside our pledge to preserve the legacy of handcrafted plasterwork remains unchanged. We are proud to reflect this responsibility in the new generation of Ansbro Mouldings, and we are pleased to see such demand for our craftsmanship in the new generation of builders, designers, architects, restoration companies and homeowners in Ireland.

We have worked with James and Ansbro Mouldings over the last number of years and have always found their service and quality to be excellent. Whether it was for new cornice or restoration of existing cornice their work is always of the highest standard. We would have no hesitation working with Ansbro Mouldings again in the future.

James has done the entire internal plasterwork for two period houses for us over the past ten years.  His professionalism and attention to detail are second to none, as is the quality and standard of his work.  I would have no hesitation in recommending him for even the most complicated plasterwork.

We have used the services of James Ansbro for over twenty years. The projects have varied from contemporary buildings to period style homes. All the jobs have been unique one offs and James has been part of the design team from the start. His ability to see the end product and then create it is one of the attributes of this unique team. Have no hesitation in recommending him to future clients.

I don’t think it’s possible to over emphasise just how much, cornicing can enhance the beauty of a room. Even the smallest room or space can be totally transformed with the right cornicing, and it can be fitted so quickly. The range of options on offer from Ansbro is almost limitless. I would strongly recommend a consultation with them if you are considering a renovation project.
