Kilsaran announces the acquisition of Oran Precast

Kilsaran has announced the acquisition of Galway based precast company Oran Precast.

Kilsaran Precast will now operate out of two locations, Oranmore in Galway and Kilsaran’s existing facility in Co. Kildare, with the combined production servicing both the Irish and UK markets.

Kilsaran commissioned its first Precast plant in early 2021 offering a full-service solution from building design and manufacture through to installation. This acquisition now gives Kilsaran the ability to provide a full complement of precast elements from walls and floors to stairs, columns, and beams.

Oran Precast’s current management team will remain and lead the combined business 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 by Kilsaran 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.”

Derek Duffy, Oran Precast (Managing Director, Kilsaran Precast), said: “We are extremely proud of how Oran Precast has evolved and grown to become one of Ireland’s leading precast manufacturers supplying precast components to numerous high-profile projects in Ireland and 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.”
