At Murphy, innovation is always on our mind. Whether in the UK or overseas, we encourage our employees to think freely and creatively so we can provide safe and sustainable solutions for complex infrastructure problems.

John Murphy

John Murphy, founder of the company, started this culture of innovation when he was among the pioneers who introduced ready-mixed concrete batching plants to the UK over 60 years ago. This revolutionary vision, a part and parcel of Murphy’s DNA, can be seen today in our award-winning projects and work. These include the Crossrail Thames Tunnel C310, London Olympic Park cable tunnels, the Föckersperger Spider Plough technology, and our Never Harm culture programme.

We know that innovation is the key to safer, smarter and greener solutions for our clients. This has led to the development of Murphy Bright Ideas® and Innovation Edge™.
