As young boys in Papakura New Zealand, Hamish Bell and Hayden Farrell found themselves on the same under 19 rugby team. Hayden with a strong silent attack and Hamish with fast wit and skills, the two of them knew right away they were great teammates. There were many wins celebrated at the local rugby club. and in time. the legendary FORGE club.
After finishing school Hayden headed back to the U.S. to work with his dad Glen Farrell (“King of Storage”) at his installation company. He then recruited Hamish to join them building storage units and travelling throughout the U.S.
Hayden and Hamish found themselves on a job in Boise, Idaho. They quickly joined the Lions Rugby team where they again were teammates and fell in love with the city, the people, and the quality of life. In time, they both settled down, started families, and now called Boise home.
After over a decade of working as foremen and independent contractors, Hamish and Hayden saw the potential to become a full-house steel service, founding Forge Building Company. By using their expertise in storage and focusing on the three pillars of buildings, designing, and erecting led them to a more diverse portfolio and stronger relations across the U.S.
