Glenigan acquires Construction Information Services
Construction information provider Glenigan’s acquisition of Construction Information Services (CIS) was officially confirmed last week.
Founded in 1972, CIS is Ireland’s leading provider of business intelligence to the Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland construction industry. It supplies comprehensive and reliable business intelligence to the sector on all significant building projects throughout Ireland.
Glenigan said the purchase of CIS solidifies its position as the most comprehensive provider of construction sales leads and industry insight in the UK and Republic of Ireland, expanding holding company Byggfakta Group’s international portfolio.
Chief executive, Victoria McEwen, said: “When looking to expand and enrich our service further into the Irish markets CIS was the obvious choice of company to acquire. They are an established and trusted brand in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland and emulate the Glenigan ethos of providing the very best service possible for their customers.
“We’re looking forward to welcoming the CIS team to the Glenigan family and building on our joint expertise to deliver the most robust and dependable service, one that our customers can rely on.”
Managing director of CIS, Tom Moloney, added: “This acquisition is an exciting opportunity for CIS, it’s staff and customers, and will enable it to continue to be the cornerstone in the provision of construction activity intelligence and data for the Irish and UK markets. Joining Glenigan and the Byggfakta Group will accelerate CIS’s vision to be the leading authority on business intelligence for construction activity in Ireland.”
