Success in Australia Prompts Leading Construction Technology Provider to Expand Footprint to Europe
DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Assignar, the global leader in cloud-based construction operations software, today announces the expansion of its business operations into the United Kingdom. Assignar’s initial expansion will target the heavy civil, excavation, demolition and rail sectors.
The company is designed to bring all construction operations under a single view, making it particularly effective for highly regulated verticals. The platform allows contractors to remain compliant and safe in their operations with real-time visibility and communications across multiple projects.
“Assignar was designed from a boots-on-the-ground perspective because it’s the solution I needed for my contracting company,” explains Assignar CEO Sean McCreanor. “Contractors don’t need a hands-off management system. They need a tool they can take into the field that solves for common operational problems. And that’s what Assignar is purposefully designed to do.”
Construction in the UK has experienced impressive growth in recent years, and experts predict the industry to grow an additional 14% in 2022 alone. Additionally, the recent passing of the National Infrastructure and Construction Pipeline will funnel an additional £650 billion into the industry over the next ten years.
In recent years, the software provider has partnered with numerous UK-based contracting companies for their operations in Australia. Continued success with these clients, along with strong similarities between the nations’ construction markets, made this expansion a natural next step. The company aims to get a sample size of UK customers by the end of 2022 and will expand the team from there.
“It’s really exciting to be on the ground as we begin to expand our presence in the country and look to bring improved operations to the construction industry,” said Mark Milner, a Senior Account Executive at Assignar. “I’ve been reaching out to local contractors and people from my time working as a civil engineer. They’ve responded with a lot of excitement, especially in the traffic management and highway sectors. From my own experience, I know the UK market is more than ready for the tools offered in the Assignar platform.”
“London is a fantastic place to scale a global tech business,” said Laura Citron, CEO of London & Partners. “That’s why we’re delighted to welcome Assignar to London this October and are thrilled they have chosen to grow their team and operations in our thriving ecosystem. I look forward to seeing how Assignar will continue to go from strength to strength in providing safety and compliance for the UK’s construction sector.”
