The O’Connor Rebrand and future vision.
As the year draws to an end, we caught up with our client O’Connor Contracts Ltd to discuss how their year was, their highlights and their ambitions for the future.

Why the rebrand?
O’Connor was formerly known as Keane O’Connor, which was establish back in 2015 as a partnership between Thomas O’Connor and Brian Keane. Following Brian’s return to Ireland, Thomas took control of the company in 2018 and has continued to grow the company and their offering.
Their recent surge in growth demanded an expansion, subsequently promoting the implementation of a strategic plan to rebrand and reconstruct the company on multiple facets. The untethering of Keane from O’Connor with the full overhaul on branding solidified and reinforced the companies growing presence within the industry.
In the last three months, O’Connor have seen substantial growth internally (commercial and operations team), as a brand (interfacing, company fleet, work wear), delivering and securing projects. The latter solidifies a structure that will cater for an expansion as higher tier contractors working on higher specified builds.
Impact of the global pandemic and the 2021 vision
During this unprecedented time, O’Connor have adapted by implementing flexible structures such as remote working. Fortunately, many of their construction sites have not been impacted as much as others and this has allowed them to continue to progress through contracted construction works.
Their goal has always been to deliver the requirements of all their diversified clientele, suppliers, employees and to exceed their expectations. The vision for the year 2021 is to further integrate the skills and attributes of their talented workforce, and of course, to continue to provide a high level of professionalism and outstanding service. With the objective of continuing to create value by providing safe and sustainable construction services.
“Our strategic business plan is to grow organically within the capacity of our highly skilled workforce and reputable supply chain. We aim to achieve longevity within the construction industry by establishing a foundation which cultivates high standards and precedence, functioning at the forefront of the construction industry.” – Daryl Evans
