IPS EMEA Region Celebrates 5 Years of Sustainable Growth

Nov 18, 2020

IPS-Integrated Project Services, LLC, a leading provider of engineering, procurement, construction management, and validation (EPCMV) services, celebrates its 5-year anniversary in Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) region. Over the last half-decade, IPS has grown to be a premier global knowledge leader delivering innovative, technology-based business solutions to help our clients succeed.

Since the opening of the first office in Birmingham, UK, the region’s headquarters, IPS has grown to five (5) locations across EMEA, in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Switzerland, and Germany. IPS EMEA now stands at over two hundred (200) employees providing consulting, engineering, construction management, and compliance services, and has completed nearly €1 billion in total project value for the pharmaceutical and biotech industries.

“As I reflect on the last five years of IPS’ presence in Europe, I take great pride in what Daryn and Gareth have been able to accomplish over a relatively short time,” stated Dave Goswami, IPS Chairman and CEO. “Appointing these two industry veterans to help establish and grow across the EMEA region was one of the best decisions, not only because of their technical expertise but also their customer and employee-focused mindset. I am also proud of the directors who joined IPS to lead the four EMEA offices; they are instrumental in our continuous growth in the region. The significance of this 5-year milestone means that we have earned the trust of our clients and attracted a robust group of talented employees to help drive the continued success of IPS.”
