IFS secures €2million in expansion funding
Today, we’re thrilled to announce that IFS has raised €2 million in expansion funding with strategic investment from The Davy EIIS Fund. This funding will support our growth and expansion plans into targeted markets in Europe and the US, as well as the creation of 100 new jobs by 2024.
When IFS first started over 20 years ago, we could see there was a gap in the marketplace with the construction handover to building owners – particularly in relation to how information was traditionally provided in unmanageable formats to clients at the end of a build. This new funding is testament to the growth potential of our technology platform and the digitisation that we have pioneered for over two decades.
We’re very much looking forward to expanding our software and services and continuing to develop our position with blue chip firms as they invest in strategic building projects and infrastructure in the years ahead.
