Murphy Group is a multi-disciplined engineering and construction company that directly employs more than 4,000 engineers, professional managers and skilled operatives. Its Irish operation accounted for €127.7m of the overall €960m contracting turnover last year, and the Irish order book has strengthened again this year. 

John G Murphy, Managing Director, Murphy Group, says 2019 was an exciting year for the company in Ireland. 

“Our civil engineering division, ground engineering team and gas construction and maintenance business all recorded strong growth,” he says. “Our process engineering business took a huge step forward in commencing a major project in Huddersfield for Yorkshire Water. We currently operate 28 water and wastewater treatment plants for Irish Water and look forward to selling that expertise into the UK, where water companies are seeking to improve quality and efficiency through outsourcing the operations of their plants.” 

According to John G Murphy, the success of Murphy International in Ireland has been down to the vast experience gained across the group’s operations and the sharing of this expertise across the whole company. 

“The group continued our expansion into Canada, securing some significant high-pressure welded steel transmission projects in the eastern part of the country, bringing to the fore our unrivalled core experience in such projects.” 

Murphy’s structural steel fabrication facility in Newbridge continued to support the business in Ireland and the UK through the fabrication and erection of steel
