Mercury is delighted to announce that it has launched its Beyond50 strategy.

Eoin Vaughan, Mercury’s Chief Executive Officer stated:

“It’s been an incredible journey so far. What began with a partnership of two people in 1972 in Dublin, Ireland has expanded and grown over the last 50 years. We’re grown and established a diverse workforce of over 4,500, with 40+ nationalities currently spanning across 16 countries. We’ve restructured and refined our leadership teams, strategies and direction over the years, while retaining the continued support of the Morgan and O’Kane families to remain aligned to our anchor value of safety and our entrepreneurial foundations.

“We embarked on Beyond50 in late 2019, having outgrown our “Mercury 2021” strategy. Firstly we aligned our vision as an Executive Management Team, developing our charter. Secondly we held two workshops; one with our leadership group of 40 people, and a second with a broader group of leaders and high-performers. The goal was to identify solutions and projects to achieve our strategy with the assistance of our advisors. Lastly, we surveyed our employees, gathering responses which generated innovative new ideas on how to make Mercury the best company we can be as we go Beyond50.

“Without the support of our staff and business partners, we would not be able to achieve the incredible things that we are aiming for. Finally, I’d like to thank and acknowledge our staff, supply chain partners, clients and advisors for their hard work and continued support in helping us to make Beyond50 happen”.

Our Beyond50 brochure below provides an overview of where we are heading as a business over the next five years.


Beyond50 is about harnessing the momentum we’ve built up over 50 years to push further and reach wider.

We believe that every day is a new day, just as exciting as the last. And we’ve channeled this energy into a five-year strategy aimed at bringing clear direction to the company for the next stage of our journey. We call it Beyond50.

It’s a platform that aligns our business and our people. It’s a new way of thinking that reaffirms our purpose to deliver leading edge construction solutions to our clients and build relationships that thrive.
