The new brand has been formed from four façade businesses acquired by private equity fund Elaghmore in the last three years.

These include the Alucraft, Alucraft Systems and Williaam Cox businesses bought in 2018 and EAG in 2019.

Together the new combined group turns over £100m, employing over 400 staff out of six locations in the UK and Ireland.

As new group chief executive officer, Oliver will head up a leadership team of the managing directors of the four group businesses tasked to deliver rapid expansion with a home-grown designed, manufactured and installed solution for facades.

He said: “As a group, we have the expertise, scale and experience to be a leading powerhouse in the design, manufacture and installation of façade systems for the built environment across the UK and Ireland. I look forward to building an exciting future.”

Oliver brings over 25 years of construction supply chain experience.

He was previously CEO of the Colt Group, which designs, manufactures, installs, and maintains ventilation, smoke control, climate control and solar shading systems.

He spent eight years as managing director at  aircrete block maker H+H and before that nearly four years at Laing O’Rourke as Group Business Development Director.

As part of the rebrand Ronnie Mills, previously McMullen Facades boss, becomes managing director of Dublin-based Alucraft, succeeding Jack McHugh.

McHugh will continue to work in Alucraft, as Chairman, supporting the leadership teams across the group of companies.
