  • April 12, 2018

    Kirby has announced an expansion in its international operations to include the new geographical area of Sweden. The expansion into the Swedish market is proving to be a successful development for Kirby.

    Commenting on the expansion into Sweden, Dave McNamara Associate Director – Munster & Europe Region, said: “Although Kirby is relatively new to the Swedish market, we are positive about our growth and success in the market. This positive outlook is backed by our success, so far, in securing a number of high-profile projects with more projects in the pipeline.”

    “Expanding our operations further in the Nordics region is a progressive step for the company both from a strategic and development standpoint, especially given the growth in the MEP construction sector” continued McNamara.

    Kirby provides full mechanical and electrical contracting services as well as specialist high voltage (HV) and medium voltage (MV) design and construction services across Ireland, the UK, and Northern Europe.  The company has the capability to execute projects in Ireland, UK, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Netherlands and Belgium and is currently developing the capability to execute projects in Norway, Germany, Switzerland and Luxembourg.

    Kirby operates in a number of sectors including Data Centres, Substations and Renewables, Life Sciences and Industrial Manufacturing. The company, with a turnover of €165m, was founded in 1964, and currently directly employs over 700 highly-skilled professionals.
