Stephen O’Malley has big plans for the expansion of the engineering firm he founded 10 years ago – just so long as it stays true to its sustainability-oriented principles. Daniel Gayne reports

It is rare to come across a business leader as sincerely enthusiastic about the nuts and bolts of what he does as Stephen O’Malley.
