The success of a Cubbington company led has led to it expanding its offices
In the past few years O’Brien Contractors has completed a successful diversification programme that has transformed its business and seen it win multiple awards in recognition of its innovation, increased sustainability, customer service standards, profit growth and staff satisfaction.
This has led to a 40 per cent expansion of its offices.
O’Brien’s business achievements since implementing the diversification programme include increasing staffing levels by 20 per cent, investing more than £2m in new plant, technology and training programmes and a 60 per cent increase in turnover in the last two years.
The good performance means the company in Church Lane plans to employ a further 25 local people by the end of this year.
Supporting the local community is integral to the company’s commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility and it is also dedicated to remaining a family business, so Victoria O’Brien will be overseeing the development of expansion plans.
Managing director, Peter O’Brien said: “The expansion of our offices is testament to how hard everyone in the business has worked to make our diversification programme a success. We are all looking forward to continuing that success to provide more jobs for local people.”
The expansion will see the addition of new offices, a new meeting area and new car parking area in order to accommodate the growth the business has seen.
