Economy

Ballinamallard contains many family businesses run by families such as the Moffatt, Coalter, Campbell, Vance, Crozier and Abbott families. In the 1970s the Development Association initiated some useful projects. The old Great Northern Railway station was restored to become the Rascal’s Playstation, a purpose-built child care centre, while the Commons was transformed into a children’s playground and industrial units were established on the Enniskillen road.

Ballinamallard’s best known family are the Fishers, whose firm, Fisher Engineering, has brought substantial employment to the village. The company, which specialises in agricultural engineering and building construction, was founded by the late Thomas Fisher when he returned from World War II. Today Fishers are one of the foremost steel construction firms in the British Isles servicing such projects as The Waterfront Hall and the Odyssey Arena in Belfast.
