Foundation piling and more

McCarthy Piling is one of the UKs leading Movax side grip sheet piling contractors.

We are a family run business which was established in 2012 by managing director Sean McCarthy, who had over 10 years experience operating Movax machinery. Sean’s expertise in the field of side grip sheet piling alongside his commitment, hard work and professionalism helped the company grow from strength to strength.

The company now has a reputation for being professional, reliable and proficient in pile foundation services for both land and marine based operations. McCarthy Piling offer their services nationwide to all clients, working alongside some of the top names like Jacksons Civils, Kier Services, Galliford Try, Buckingham Group, RMC Civils and many more.


Sadly in 2018, our managing director Sean McCarthy was tragically killed in a single vehicle road traffic collision leaving behind his partner and his two daughters Frankie aged 8 and Charlie aged 4.

The loss of Sean was felt by many throughout the construction industry and in particular the employees of McCarthy Piling, who viewed him as a close friend as much as an employer.

Sean’s partner Toni Birch now operates the company alongside the company’s operations and contracts manager Andy Clay. Both are working tirelessly to ensure the company maintains the high standards that Sean has established over the past 6 years. McCarthy Piling remains one of the go-to contractors for all Movax side grip sheet piling requirements.

In August 2018 Toni and many of Sean’s friends and employees took part in a 5km tough mudder to raise money for the charity BRAKE, which offers valuable support to families who have lost a loved one in a road traffic collision. Collectively, they raised £5,291 for the charity in Sean’s memory, which gladly can be used to help other families that find themselves in the sad and helpless situation that Sean’s family found themselves in after his untimely passing.

Sean’s legacy lives on in the company and all our employees ensure that they show the hard work and commitment that was expected from Sean, to continue to build on the company’s already stellar reputation in foundation piling.
