Dan Ibbetson, CEO of Portakabin, said: “Combining the modular knowledge, scale, and financial strength of York-headquartered Portakabin with the specialist healthcare expertise of Darwin Group will now offer healthcare providers both temporary and permanent building solutions to cover all future clinical and non-clinical requirements. This union between two of the most respected offsite modular builders in their respective fields is an exciting development for both Portakabin and Darwin Group. We are both passionate about providing the healthcare sector with the most comprehensive range of market-leading products and services, particularly given the considerable pressures on our healthcare professionals today.” “An incredibly strong culture runs through the DNA of both businesses, and our commitment to delivering quality healthcare facilities that allow clinicians to enhance patient care makes this a natural fit,” said Richard Pierce, CEO of Darwin Group. “We are truly excited to start working together to continue delivering outstanding buildings for our customers.”
Darwin Group is headquartered in Telford, has around 200 staff, and had a turnover of around £80 m in 2022.
