Publicists for Anthony O’Connor & Sons have issued a statement listing new contract awards and declaring that: “AOC’s strong reputation held force with long term clients supporting them through this time and to stand by AOC for a positive result.”

Last month AOC was called out to clear the site of the Roydon Plastic Recycling plant after it was destroyed by a fire.

The company was also called on after a gas explosion at a two-storey block of flats in Heywood. AOC worked for two week with local building control officials to make the structure safe.

The contractor has also continued to work on the long-term regeneration the Brunswick area.

“Despite the well-documented financial problems to the start of the year, it is clear with these recent appointments that Anthony O’Connor & Sons have the commitment and drive to move forward and build a more successful and prominent business which will offer a superior service within the demolition industry,” the company said.
