An Taoiseach Enda Kenny opens Collen GmbH Offices in Frankfurt

April 07, 2017

An Taoiseach Enda Kenny officially opened our new Collen GmbH offices in Frankfurt Germany on Thursday April 6th 2017.

Speaking at the event the Taoiseach said: “Collen Construction is an excellent example of an innovative Irish company, expanding its specialist services into the competitive but much larger European market with assistance from Enterprise Ireland. The Government’s focus has been on providing the supports for exporting companies to prepare for the challenges posed by Brexit – building on the recent growth in exports by helping them to consolidate their existing relationships and develop new partnerships.” 

European Operations Manager for Collen GmbH, Tom O'Connor, thanked the Taoiseach saying "today's event marks the beginning of a new phase of growth for Collen Construction. Over the past 5 years, we have successfully completed the construction of 1.6 million square of hi-tech space and have expanded our operations into the German market. Through the launch of our Frankfurt office, we will seek to secure work in other European countries and with the support of Enterprise Ireland have already established strategic partners to deliver built-solutions Europe-wide."
