W.E. O’Neil Construction announces it has acquired DCA Construction, a prominent general contracting firm based in Austin, Texas. The acquisition marks an exciting opportunity to formally expand W.E. O’Neil’s operations into the Texas market, where they have completed several projects for long-time clients over the last two decades.
DCA has grown significantly since its founding in 2006. Led by Randy Don Carlos and Kevin Foltermann, the firm performs a mix of negotiated and lump sum work, much of which is relationship-based with repeat customers. DCA’s primary focus is on commercial construction in and around Austin.
“We’re thrilled to welcome DCA to the company and look forward to combining the reputation and relationships they’ve established in the Austin market with our expertise and financial resources to create many new opportunities,” stated Brian Ramsay, CEO of O’Neil Industries, W.E. O’Neil’s parent company.
As the construction market grows in Texas, the acquisition presents exciting possibilities for the firm’s employee-owners, in terms of project and career opportunities, as well as expanded depth and capabilities to serve W.E. O’Neil’s clients in Texas and nationwide.
“W.E. O’Neil shares many of the same values we do,” said Randy Don Carlos, President of DCA. “They were a natural fit to join forces with, and the acquisition presents tremendous advantages for our employees and our clients. We’re excited about the expertise they bring to our team, which will allow us, together, to pursue projects in the Austin market we may not have been positioned to previously.”
W.E. O’Neil is excited to welcome DCA Construction, a W.E. O'Neil Company.
W.E. O’Neil has been a leader in the commercial construction industry since its founding in 1925. Today, this 100% employee-owned firm proudly builds upon its historic roots and current employee-owners to deliver on its mission of bringing thoughtful leadership to the building experience.
