Company History

IRIS has been providing industrial support project and service solutions to the most complex and demanding industries since 2005. The company was formed by a group of like-minded engineers who wanted to offer a tailored ‘Single Source Solution’ that would be based on an open and honest partnership.

IRIS has grown to around 120 employees today, with turnover last year in excess of £9m. Our clients range from blue chip companies to start-up businesses. The vast majority of our clients are repeat clients; we have developed long-standing relationships with them in successfully executing project after project, or through long-standing renewed maintenance agreements.
