Kirby opens an office in the Netherlands as part of European expansion

Kirby Group Engineering, a mechanical and electrical engineering contractor, has opened an office in the Netherlands as part of its expansion into mainland Europe.

Commenting on the new office, which is located in Schiphol, Dave McNamara, Operations Director for Munster and Europe, said: “Opening an office in the Netherlands is a strategic move in our expansion into the Dutch market and wider mainland Europe market.  Not only will it support our growth, it will also allow us to best serve our expanding client base in the region.”

Kirby entered the Dutch market in late 2018 and it is proving to be a successful move for the company: “We have already secured a number of high-profile projects in the data centre and life science sectors with more projects in the pipeline,” explains McNamara.

“Expanding our operations further into mainland Europe is a progressive step for Kirby, particularly given strong levels of investment in two of our key target sectors: data centres and life sciences,” adds 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 mainland Europe. The company has the capability to execute projects in Ireland, UK, Netherlands, Sweden, Finland, Norway and Germany.

Kirby operates in a number of sectors including Data Centres, Substations and Renewables, Life Sciences, Industrial Manufacturing, Petrochemical and Commercial. The company, with a turnover of €200m, was founded in 1964, and currently directly employs over 850 highly-skilled professionals.
