Meet The Family Behind Post Buddy
Wayne and Gaby Phelan founded Fence-Aid, the company behind Post Buddy, in 2010. Although it is now a thriving family business based in Sheffield England, the idea for Post Buddy started with a simple problem in the Phelan family’s backyard.
Wayne noticed that his wood fence posts had rotted at ground level, then snapped during the next storm. After a post broke, the rest of the fence would lean, leaving it in danger of total collapse.
Tired of digging out and replacing his broken fence posts, Wayne put his experience as a construction manager to work, designing the original prototypes for what is now Post Buddy.
Though it started as a simple home DIY project, Post Buddy took off when Wayne and Gaby committed themselves to the family business.
