Modubuild have opened a new regional office in Amsterdam to support their ongoing expansion in the Benelux Region.

Ireland's Ambassador to Netherlands Mr. Kevin Kelly visited the brand new offices to officially mark the official opening.

The company has been active in The Netherlands since 2015 having completed multiple projects for global technology companies in the country. The company plans to double its turnover in the Netherlands by 2020 and will also use the Amsterdam office to expand across the Benelux Region.

It was not until Ambassador Kelly met Modubuild’s Managing Director Kevin Brennan that the two men realised that they are both Laois natives with Ambassador Kelly hailing from Borris-in-Ossory and Mr Brennan coming from Clough.

Ambassador Kelly later tweeted, “And an unexpected pleasant surprise to find out that the MD of @Modubuild is none other than fellow Laois man from Ballacolla, Kevin Brennan. It’s a small world! Welcome to NL @Modubuild. Thanks @Entirl for the introduction.”

Modubuild was co-founded by Kevin Brennan who is a native of Clough along with his business partner John Comerford who is from Castlecomer. Mr Comerford also has strong links to Laois as his mother is a native of Clough.

Modubuild is undergoing a phase of rapid expansion across Europe having successfully completed multiple projects in countries such as Ireland, Netherlands, UK, Germany, Denmark, Sweden and Finland and they have plans enter further markets over the coming year.

Modubuilds head office is located in Kilkenny, Ireland. The company has also recently invested 140,000 square foot state of the art off site Modular Building manufacturing facility in Castlecomer following a multi million euro investment.

The company is producing hi tech Modular Buildings for Global Biopharmaceutical and Technology companies in the Castlecomer facility. The company has a large design, project management and engineering team working from their Kilkenny Headquarters.
