ONEIL & Associates (ONEIL), an employee-owned company that develops technical publications, training and product support solutions, celebrates 75 years of experience making complex information easier to understand. ONEIL marks decades of success by reflecting on corporate and community achievements and announcing a new position dedicated to employee well-being and engagement.

“This milestone anniversary is a testament to the dedication and innovative spirit of ONEIL’s current employees and those who have gone before us,” said Hernan Olivas, ONEIL’s President and CEO. “As an employee-owned company, our commitment to excellence begins and ends with a culture of trust – the trust we have cultivated with our customers, the trust we have established within our community and the trust that we continue to build with our co-workers.”

Originally established in 1947 as LE O’Neil & Associates, ONEIL has won numerous accolades throughout its decades of business. In addition to producing technical equipment for the most renowned companies and military operations in the world, ONEIL has also received these distinctions over the past 75 years:

  • Made Inc. Magazine’s Top 5,000 List (2010)

“Nothing builds trust more than consistency over time, and we have that in droves,” comments Olivas. “Our team is tenured, talented and tenacious, and I’m proud to work alongside them every day.” On average, ONEIL employees serve 11½ years, nearly triple the national average of four years according to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics.

To further develop employee culture and mark the next step in the evolution of the brand, ONEIL has promoted 24-year-old employee Donna England to the position of Head of Corporate Wellbeing and Engagement, a newly created position. In this role, England will promote a culture consistent with the mission and values ​​of the ONEIL brand.
