Jones Engineering history

Jones Engineering has a rich history dating back to 1890 when the original company – HA O’Neil Ltd – was founded. From the Irish Civil War to the Covid-19 pandemic, Jones Engineering has endured through its commitment to excellence, innovation and the development of talent. Its success over the past 130 years can be attributed to this ethos and to its staff, many of whom have spent decades with the company.

Jones Engineering management team

Jones Engineering is led by a management team, restructured in 2022, with long-serving staff at the helm. CEO Stephen McCabe has spent 36 years with the company. COO Shane Gillece is similarly experienced, having worked with Jones Engineering since 1989. The management team is focused on expansion of the company’s global offering alongside international partners and leading a culture of openness, inclusivity and excellence.

Commitment to sustainability

Jones Engineering has established a responsible business framework to manage its environmental and social impacts. The company has aligned its responsible business framework to the UN Sustainable Development Goals, specifically:

  • Good Health & Wellbeing
  • Decent Work & Economic Growth
  • Climate Action
  • Industry Innovation & Infrastructure
  • Reduced Inequalities
  • Sustainable Cities & Communities.

To make a difference in these areas, Jones Engineering divides its sustainability work into four key pillars: ‘People’, ‘Planet’, ‘Products & Services’ and ‘Community’, with key themes under each. It is committed to continually assessing its sustainability policies and revising its ambitions.

Commitment to innovation

Jones Engineering’s unwavering commitment to innovation drives it to stay at the forefront of technology and regulations. Recently, it made a significant investment in the NavVis VLX3 mobile mapping system, revolutionising its geo-survey division.

The NavVis VLX3 is a leading wearable mobile mapping solution, capturing detailed reality data for complex indoor and outdoor sites. Operators can comfortably scan at a walking pace, thanks to its precision SLAM technology.

This innovation benefits clients across all sectors and represents the future of mobile mapping, offering unparalleled data quality and faster turnarounds when integrated with Jones Engineering’s existing services like terrestrial laser scanning and drone lidar.
