Irish contech Fexillon announces UK expansion

Fexillon, an Ireland-based provider of digital asset management solutions, has unveiled plans to make additional investments in the UK as part of its wider European growth strategy.

The firm is looking to double its UK headcount to over 20 employees by year-end, and will establish offices in London and Birmingham within that same timeframe.   

Fexillon helps blue-chip firms in the public and private sectors to provide a more streamlined approach to buildings and property management.

Its software and value-added services provide a secure environment for managing building information from planning and design to operations and maintenance for the building owner and operator.

The company’s platform enables its clients to make data-led decisions in real time.

Founded 22 years ago by George Harold and Kieran Beggan, the company aims to become Europe’s largest provider of digital asset management solutions as the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry becomes increasingly digitised.

Accelerating industry 4.0.

Kieran Beggan, Fexillon co-CEO and co-Founder, said: “Over 22 years we have built a strong reputation for quality and innovation.

“Our solutions offer peace of mind for blue-chip firms in the public and private sector, providing a more streamlined approach to buildings and property management. 

“These markets will accelerate at pace as the pandemic eases and remote management capability expands under Industry 4.0 and includes process automation, IoT and robotics.   

“Our expansion into the UK will ensure Fexillon is well positioned to support mission critical building owners with regional and global footprints and can provide a secure environment for managing building information from planning and design stage, construction and handover to operations and maintenance for the building owner and operator.”  

George Harold, co-CEO and co-founder, added: “Fexillon is now poised to become a significant player in Europe with our new UK base and the expansion of our international team.

“Launching in the UK marks a strategic pivot in our future direction and ongoing development of the company, and we believe that the potential to unlock further opportunities in the UK and European markets are huge.”  

Fexillon has also announced that it is furthering its collaboration with Microsoft in the assessment of a range of solutions including Digital Twins, HoloLens technology, and Building Information Modelling (BIM) integration.
