• CAN opens new Irish office

CAN companies continue expansion with new office in Dublin, Ireland.

As of Monday 17th June, the Irish office became the fifth permanent CAN base and will supplement its offices in Chesterfield, Northfleet, Portishead and Glasgow (opened in May).  Jona Crabtree is CAN’s new regional manager for Ireland.  The company will share the premises with other RSK companies.

About 70% of CAN’s business is geotechnical projects for slope and retaining wall stabilisation and installing rockfall protection measures.  The remainder involves structural repairs, construction, inspection, testing and maintenance – often including bespoke access solutions.  Two of our major recent projects include the installation of the roof at Tottenham Hotspur’s new football stadium in North London and a highways project at the Heads of the Valleys in Wales.

Ireland has proved to be successful for CAN over the last 20 years.  We have implemented rock netting for Donegal County Council and cliff stabilisation for its counterpart in Wicklow.  Not to mention, stabilisation at the Lakeside Housing Development in Coleraine. The Dublin office enables CAN to provide direct and immediate services to operators and contractors based in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.  CAN’s expansion into Ireland comes after its acquisition by RSK last October.

“Following the recent appointment of Colin Smith as the Scottish regional manager, we are very pleased to be able to announce that as of Monday 17th June, Jona Crabtree will be the regional manager for Ireland,” commented Mark Richardson, CAN managing director.

“Jona has worked for CAN for the last 12 years.  We have no doubt that he will apply his vast experience to the new role.  I am confident that his energy, enthusiasm and professionalism will appeal to our clients, new and old.  We know Jona will be instrumental in helping CAN to tap into the huge potential of the Irish market.”
