Technal, the Leeds-based architectural aluminium systems specialist, has opened its first office in Ireland. The new business, Technal Ireland, will offer its innovative and highly engineered range of door, window and curtain walling products direct to fabricators, architects and contractors.

“We have seen a significant increase in sales in Ireland over recent years as awareness of our systems has continued to grow”, said Dennis Mitchell, General Manager of Technal Ireland. “Our investment in an independent base for Technal in Ireland will enable us to build on this success and further expand our market share by offering products and services of the highest standards to both new and existing customers.”

Technal’s award-winning façade systems have been distributed in Ireland for the past 10 years and a wide variety of commercial, retail and leisure applications have been completed. Current projects include a 300,000 sqft office development at Beacon Court in Dublin, a luxury five star hotel and residential scheme at the Druid’s Glen Golf Resort in Newtownmountkennedy and the prestigious new Belfast Courts – the UK’s first PFI crown and county court building.

In addition to its portfolio of high performance commercial glazing systems, Technal offers a comprehensive range of support services to architects and contractors, which includes the provision of its systems on CD-ROM for the creation of fast and accurate drawings, and a technical team to work with specifiers from the design stage through to project completion.
