McAllister Bros | Then and Now

Established in 1971 by brothers Eamon, Michael and Patrick McAllister and located in Newry, McAllister Bros. Ltd was formed as an environmental services company offering drain cleaning services to business and residential customers. One of the firm’s first business customers was the Goodyear factory which was located in Lurgan. From its modest beginning, the company has evolved over the years into an Industry leader offering a range of high-tech and innovative solutions to clients across multiple industry and business sectors. The family-owned company’s core values remain unchanged with the progress of time. For over 45 years the company has prided itself on an outlook centred on integrity, deliverability, innovativeness and customer-focused solutions.

We plan to continue to ensure that the McAllister Group remains at the forefront of the Industry as a specialist supplier of environmental services through continued investment, risk-taking, innovativeness and our ability to deliver consistently for customers.
