Colin O'Brien

Owner/Founder of Ambassador Installations

Colin was born in Coventry England and immigrated to Canada in 1979. He began working for a United Van lines agent where he drove CDL and learned about the household moving industry. His passion for customer service led him to give customers above and beyond quality service, treating each customer with respect. He had numerous customers write reviews which were published in the United Van lines Unican publications.


Holiday Inn Hotel Installations became a new side of the moving industry and this would send him nationwide doing hotel installations, as the hotel installation business grew he anticipated what the clients wanted and needed, seeing any problems and finding solutions resulting in cost effective savings for the clients. Ambassador Installations started to evolve as clients saw the quality service provided. Including prompt updates as projects moved forward. The Ontario Provincial Police HQ was Ambassador Installations first big install, which required on site service after the big move in.


In 2001 Colin moved to the United States and used his CDL experience to deliver household furniture and other products while still pushing forward with Ambassador Installations, reaching out with his professional Installation experience. Working on hotel projects in the USA for an installation company, he could see what the client wanted and, most importantly, what the client was not getting, through current services. This pushed Colin to provide the services which businesses were looking for.


In 2003 Colin and his family moved to Grapevine, Texas and he began working on the new Gaylord Texan hotel installations, with their new furniture and art work. Ambassador Installations was also asked to build shipping crates to ship product for a national restaurant chain. Today Ambassador Installations operates out of a 30,000 Sq ft warehouse in Grapevine, Texas complete with with racking and logistics services for all your transportation, warehouse and hospitality installation needs. Continuously striving to provide professional customer service and quality workmanship.


Colin has been in the industry long enough to know what you need. And has the ability to give your company the services to meet your needs. Let Ambassador Installations help your business succeed!
