Starting a Small Automation Company in Dublin.
Need to start automation business in Dublin. Looking for leads on where to start market research.
By Usman Sanaullah on 22 August, 2016 - 2:54 pm

Dear Friends,

We have been working as a small company providing automation services like plc, vfd, hmi, mcc, ddc, bms panels, some scada systems etc. We mostly take integration in existing system or mostly risky tasks which other bigger companies refuse to take. Now we are thinking to shift to Dublin, since many of our family members live there. But the difficult part is that none of them know anything about automation industry so they can't give us any info on this topic. but we are eager to start a small setup in Dublin as a small company. We have worked with Johnson controls, trane, carrier, honeywell, saudi aramco and many high level professional companies here for more than 15 years in Saudi Arabia. Is it possible to provide us any lead from where can we start our market research?

any suggestion would be highly appreciated.
