With notable expertise in the construction and surfacing of highways and airfields, areas of innovation include special surfacing products development, polymer modification and design expertise. Lagan has experience in international markets including the U.K., Eastern Europe and the Middle East, and is currently progressing opportunities in Africa.
Sean Finlay, director of Geoscience Ireland, said:
“In 2016, GI made a decision to attract larger companies to the network; the decision has been mutually beneficial whereby large-company scale can be supported by small-company flexibility while also providing these larger companies with direct access to the niche skills of GI’s smaller companies. 2017 has already witnessed Roadstone, Mincon and Compass Informatics joining the GI cluster. Lagan’s arrival continues this development.Its expertise in sourcing and providing specialised products for infrastructure development will be an important adjunct to the GI range of skills and services.”
