ESS Group has received a strategic investment from ISG that will not only boost growth, but further enhance ISG’s leadership role within the group

ISG has become a major shareholder of the ESS Group, following a major investment. The strategic investment from ISG supports the ESS Group’s ambitious growth strategy and further enhances ISG’s leadership role within the group. ISG aims to use innovation and pioneering delivery approaches to transform the construction industry.

The ESS Group, incorporated in 1989, is headquartered in Dublin and Manchester, and  employs more than 280 staff. The company specialises in innovative Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) solutions for those working in healthcare, commercial and public sectors. The group includes the ESS Modular and Spatial Initiative brands.

This latest strategic investment from ISG builds upon ESS Group’s 2020 acquisition of construction integration specialist Spatial Initiative. It will also contribute to brining additional capability in resources, research and development capability and catalyse the group’s further expansion.

‘The ISG investment is a pivotal moment for the ESS Group’

Paul Tierney, chief executive officer at ESS, commented:

“The ISG investment is a pivotal moment for the ESS Group, giving us a solid financial platform for our continued growth plans.  We passionately believe in a better way and have been working for the last 30 years to bring high quality offering to our clients.  We are looking forward to what we are sure will be an exciting time for the industry as we see MMC continue to transform customer outcomes and expectations in the drive towards a net zero future.”

The industry needs greater integration and collaboration to improve performance

CEO of ISG, Matt Blowers, added:

“Greater integration and collaboration are two ways that our industry can accelerate its performance to meet the growing demand for net zero construction solutions. The ESS Group brings a wealth of expertise, talent and innovation into ISG and enables us to collectively fast-track our journey developing and implementing leading-edge built solutions that are rooted in operational performance and the highest sustainable and ethical outcomes.”
