Galway Daily business Oranmore construction manufacturer bought by Kildare company

The Oranmore based concrete structures manufacturer Oran Precast has been bought by Kildare company Kilsaran.

The two companies are both manufacturers of precast concrete products for the constructions industry.

Oran Precast was founded in 1981, and has been based out of its factory at Deerpark, Oranmore since then.

Derek Duffy, Managing Director of Oran Precast, said that they are very proud of how the company has evolved to become one of Ireland’s biggest precast manufacturers, supplying projects at home, and in the UK.

“I would like to thank the dedicated team in Oran Precast who have established the business to what it is today. I look forward to future growth of our combined business, Kilsaran Precast over the coming months and years.”

Oran Precast’s current management team will remain with Derek Duffy becoming the Managing Director of Kilsaran Precast and John Dooley becoming the Commercial Director for the combined entity.

David & Derry McKeown, CO-CEO’s of Kilsaran, said this investment, “Allows us to provide a complete precast solution for our customers and comes at a time when there is a significant shift in the construction market towards offsite construction.”

“We look forward to working with our new colleagues in Oran Precast as we integrate the two businesses for further growth and investment.”
