An Taoiseach, Enda Kenny has officially opened the Frankfurt Office of Collen Construction today during a two-day trade visit to Germany.

Established in 1810, over the past 5 years, Collen Construction successfully completed the construction of 1.6 Million square feet of hi-tech space and have expanded their operations into the German market.
Through the launch of their Frankfurt office, Collen Construction 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.
Welcoming today's news, CEO of Enterprise Ireland, Julie Sinnamon said, "Collen Construction continues to push the boundaries of construction in the fast-paced data centre industry. Enterprise Ireland is proud to support Collen in progress towards becoming a market-leader in the German data-centre construction sector."

We look forward to working closely with Collen to optimise their full international growth potential, creating and sustaining jobs in Ireland."
