WEST Yorkshire-based metalworking firm Arkoni is set to expand into the Irish construction market after linking up with Dublin-based Linham Construction.
The agreement has led to the formation of Arkoni Ireland with the remit of providing fully certified fire-rated, security and steel glazing systems for a growing number of public and private building projects across Ireland and the North of Ireland.
Founded in 1991, Arkoni supplies a wide range of fire-rated and steel glazing systems as well as architectural and bespoke metalwork solutions for commercial, residential and public sector construction projects across Britain.
Linham Construction was established in 1995 and provides construction-related services across Ireland.
Arkoni Ireland MD Frank Flynn said: “This is a great opportunity for Arkoni and Linham to introduce the highest spec fire glazing solutions into the Irish market. Arkoni’s manufacturing skills are a highly attractive proposition on this side of the Irish Sea and we are already seeing significant orders coming in.”
Arkoni founder Mark Prentice added: “We foresee only growth across Ireland in the short to medium term with our profile set to expand in partnership with Linham. We are very much on the same wavelength.”
