The O'Shea Corporation a Burgundian-based global shipbuilding and logistics holding company. It has been a subsidiary of Quicksilver Industries since the 2007 acquisition of O’Shea Container Shipping, along with all of its sister companies under the O'Shea Heavy Industrial Systems company.

The origins of the O'Shea Corporation trace back to the 19th century where a Gaelic Kuhlfrosian immigrated to Burgundie and founded O'Shea Hull Design in 1873. By the beginning of the 20th century, O'Shea Hull Design had become the O'Shea Shipping Company and it was the largest naval architecture firm in Burgundie. The company continued to diversify its assets across the maritime realm, establishing other companies such as O’Shea Container Shipping, O'Shea Infrastructure and Design, O'Shea Operation Management Services, O'Shea International Services, the O'Shea Maritime Academy-, and the O'Shea Chemical Research Facility. Having made large profits from major infrastructure contracts during the Pax Burgundia, O'Shea expanded yet again on the 1990s, this time in the arenas of harbor design/construction. This diversification of its assets and its foreign investments helped it survive the Burgundian Great Recession unscathed.

During the 2000s, the O'Shea Shipping Company wanted to assert itself as a world-class naval architecture and standardized container shipping firm and Quicksilver Industries acquired it in 2007 under the name O’Shea Heavy Industrial Systems for $20.5 billion. The acquisition was beneficial to both parties as QSI was able to enter the Levantine market and O'Shea was able to sell to a global customer base. The acquisition has spurned several new enterprises under the O’Shea brand, forcing QSI to restructure the company in 2025 as the O'Shea Corporation to more effectively and efficiently manage the company and its growing brand.

Today, the O'Shea Corporation is the largest shipbuilding and logistics company in the world, employing 98,000, operating over 1,500 ships and has a capacity of 6.1 million TEU.

History

Coming from a poor Gaelic family in Fiannria, Padraig O'Seaghdha saw no life for himself in his small inland village. Buying the only ticket he could afford, he immigrated to Burgundie in 1858. He was fascinated by the harbor and the ships and when he arrived in Kongerhus he took a job as a shipwright. He did not take to the work well, as he was often caught sketching instead of working and was soon fired. To make money for food he began selling his sketches. He was offered a job as a draughtsman for a small firm and soon became the preeminent designer. In 1873, he founded O'Shea Hull Design (having simplified the spelling of his name) with two other draughtsmen. In 1881, O'Shea Hull Design bought two fledgling merchant houses to become the O'Shea Shipping Company. This acquisition lead to the specialization of O'Shea's ship design strategy to merchant cargo ships. Blustered by the rising influence of the Burgundian merchant marine, O'Shea's business director, Seamus Hannigan began buying up smaller design houses and merchant concerns. By 1903 the O'Shea Shipping Company was the largest naval architecture firm in Burgundie.

With the passing of Padraig O'Seaghdha in 1917, at the age of 77, Seamus Hannigan took over. Under Seamus' tenure, 1917-1961, O'Shea diversified its assets across the maritime realm. Buying four shipyards suffering from bankruptcy, a marine engineering firm, a for-profit merchant marine college, and a harbor dredging company.

Having made large profits from major infrastructure contracts during the Pax Burgundia O'Shea expanded yet again on the 1990s, this time in the arenas of standard gauge rail and harbor design/construction. This diversification of its assets and its foreign investments helped it survive the Burgundian Great Recession unscathed.

During the 2000s, the O'Shea Shipping Company wanted to assert itself as a world-class naval architecture and standardized container shipping firm and Quicksilver Industries acquired it in 2007 under the name O’Shea Heavy Industrial Systems for $20.5 billion. The acquisition was beneficial to both parties as QSI was able to enter the Levantine market and O'Shea was able to sell to a global customer base. The acquisition has spurned several new enterprises under the O’Shea brand, forcing QSI to restructure the company in 2025 as the O'Shea Corporation to more effectively and efficiently manage the company and its growing brand.
