Dublin-based provider of digital asset management solutions, Fexillon, has announced it is to expand its operations into the US, UK, and Scandinavia with the recruitment of 100 new staff over the next three years.

The company, formally known as Integrated Facilities Solutions (IFS), has also confirmed it is teaming up with Microsoft to develop and test a range of solutions, including Digital Twins, HoloLens technology, and Building Information Modelling (BIM) integration. 

Fexillon will also utilise Microsoft’s Azure cloud computing platform to support bespoke, detailed, and interactive digital replicas of Microsoft’s built infrastructure, the company said.

Fexillon was founded 22 years ago by George Harold and Kieran Beggan who were both graduates of Dublin Institute of Technology Bolton Street.  

Kieran Beggan, Fexillon co-CEO and co-founder, said: “Over the past 22 years, we’ve built a strong reputation for quality and innovation. The equity built under our previous identity is a valuable asset and has helped us grow and expand into targeted markets in Europe and the US, targeting doubling our revenue and headcount, and aiming to create 100 new jobs by 2024.

“However, evolving our name marks a strategic pivot in our future direction and enables opportunities to market the Fexillon brand in pursuit of future growth and expansion.

“In all, the rebranding and our global expansion embodies an Irish organisation that is reinventing itself and building upon its history of innovation and expertise but is still committed to its original mission; to build a more connected, sustainable, and intelligent future for our built world.”

George Harold, Fexillon co-CEO and co-founder, said: “We have long established ourselves as experts in the business of what we do. To reinforce this among our customers and to aid them in their journey with our brand, we decided the time was ripe to strengthen ourselves further based on our long legacy of technical excellence.

“By further leveraging our expertise through this strategic rebrand and growth, we can continue to create a single source of truth for a more sustainable, connected and innovative future for the built world.”   

As part of its expansion, Fexillon will also be recruiting for strategic regional leadership roles including software developers, building information managers, and smart buildings IoT engineers across its new regional bases.
