Cantillon rebranded as Morrisroe Demolition

Cantillon has been renamed as Morrisroe Demolition, three years after being bought by Morrisroe Group.

Morrisroe’s concrete-frame business, AJ Morrisroe & Sons, will also now trade as Morrisroe, the company announced.

Morrisroe founder and chief executive Brian Morrisroe said the rebranding would present a clearer message to the market about the company and the services it delivered.

“Our demolition business increasingly represents us in the early procurement stages, communicating our unique value proposition to our clients,” he said.

“The idea of our integrated specialist delivery model encompassing demolition through to the completion of the structure has gained considerable traction in our market, so it made sense that our intention to work seamlessly together ‘as one’ should be reflected in our branding.”

Morrisroe bought a controlling stake in Cantillon in 2020 as part of an acquisition strategy that also saw it move into the piling sector with a deal to buy GSS Piling – which is already under Morrisroe branding – the year before.

Morrisroe said the acquisition of Cantillon and GSS Piling had been “strong cultural fits”, and that the firm’s rebranding reflected its ability to deliver specialist packages to the London and Birmingham markets with a single point of contact.

“I believe this will create greater internal alignment and will add momentum to our ongoing improvement and future growth plans,” he said.

Cantillon was one of 10 companies fined a combined £59.3m by the Competitions and Market Authority in March for “illegal cartel agreements” in the submission of bids for 19 projects.

Two former Cantillon managing directors – Michael Cantillon and Paul Cluskey – are among four individuals who have been disqualified from being company directors for specified periods, for their role in cover-bidding arrangements.

However, Cluskey was given permission by the High Court in May to continue as a director of the firm, subject to conditions, having admitted to his role in three cover-bidding incidents. The judge said it was in the interests of employees for Cluskey to stay, to ensure that the company remained able to operate effectively.
