About Us

At Wm. O’Brien our heavy lift services transform complex customer needs into successful innovative solutions, delivered safely, on time and on budget. We are your problem solvers. No matter what your challenge, we will find the right solution for you.

Headquartered in Ireland, we work on heavy lift projects right across Europe, as well as from America to Egypt and Norway to Barbados. Our customers take our project teams from one country to the next, knowing that our can-do attitude will ensure that no matter what unique challenges a project brings, our committed team will deliver the perfect solution. We create long term relationships with our customers based on trust, confidence and reliability.

We help minimise risk for our customers by managing all the complexities around heavy lift projects. Over the last 7 decades there are very few challenges we haven’t come up against and have consequently developed vast experience in dealing with the most challenging and complicated of situations.

We commit to working to the highest international standards, with ISO 45001 accreditation (one of the first crane hire companies in the world to be certified), as well as ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.
