Author: Cormac Byrne  /  16th Aug, 2022  /  News, Insights

As we reflect upon Mercury’s 50th year in business we are proud to share a new, interactive Origin Story that recounts our incredible journey and growth over the past five decades.

Our journey started back in 1972 with two men and one purpose – to deliver our clients’ vision through leading edge construction solutions.

It was Frank O’Kane and Joe Morgan’s unwavering passion and determination that has seen Mercury expand and grow.

Fast forward to 2022 and we’re still at the forefront of change, pioneering modern methods of construction that guarantee safety, quality, certainty and sustainability.

Our team is now 8,500 strong, with 46 unique nationalities, operating across 16+ countries.

A diverse mix of forward-thinking people, applying our skills to some of the world’s most complex engineering projects.
