About Cahill Technical Services

Our History

Cahill Technical Services was founded in 1998 by GJ Cahill & Company as a calibration lab dedicated to the then emerging Eastern Canadian Offshore Oil Industry. That lab continues to thrive today with an ever-increasing customer base and list of capabilities.

We’ve always tried to be responsive, fair, and loyal to our clients. Our clients have reciprocated, and repeat business has often led to the repeat question: “Can you do that too?” Over the years the answer to that question—more and more—has been ‘yes’, and we now offer a wide range of EI&C engineering, project management, systems integration, and field services beyond the lab operations.

Today, we are proud to be the engineering and technical services subsidiary of the Cahill Group. In addition to providing our subcontract services to Cahill, we now play a lead role within the group for commissioning, maintenance, and operations work scopes, as well as EPC and design-build opportunities, such as in industrial and municipal water & waste water treatment.

Our Mission

Cahill Technical Services’ mission is to provide clients with superior electrical, instrumentation, and controls (EI&C) engineering, systems integration, calibration lab, fabrication, and field services; delivering the highest levels of quality and value in a timely and safe manner by leveraging the knowledge of our people through continuous investment in training, technology and management systems.

Our Vision

Cahill Technical Services will be the preferred electrical, instrumentation, and control (EI&C) systems engineering and service organization in Atlantic Canada, providing a comprehensive suite of superior engineering, systems integration, calibration lab, fabrication, and field services. Through the established relationships across the Cahill Group, Cahill Technical Services will provide value-added services to clients in the maintenance and operations market segments.

Cahill Technical Services will differentiate itself in the marketplace through its quality, safety, planning, project management expertise, in-depth industry knowledge, and strength. It will be a high performance organization built around exceptionally capable people who excel at understanding and meeting client needs. Cahill Technical Services will expand through a focus on client and employee satisfaction, disciplined management, and strategic win-win partnerships with suppliers, clients, and affiliates within the Cahill Group of Companies.
