The KES Group Story

KES Group – Who Are We?

KES Group is a limited company that thrives from growth and development from within. We are an ambitious company that employs professionals of all talents to create a business that stems from renewable technologies and innovative practises. At KES Group, our ethos is Design, Innovate and Deliver. Our team of designers and engineers are on hand to shape each project for a result that is completely unique to each client.


In 2009, we set off as a Solar Photovoltaic Specialist, installing Solar PV Systems throughout Northern Ireland. A London investor noticed the potential in KES Solar and invested 15 million into a ‘Free Solar’ project. This successful venture enabled KES Solar to become the market leader, with over 5500 successful installations to date.

Following the success of the solar, with all the expertise on hand, KES entered into the biomass market. This resulted in a rebrand from KES Solar to KES Energi. By the end of 2016 the renewable energy sector in Northern Ireland had taken a major hit and we noticed a gap in the market for modular construction. Following the successes in this market, KES Energi introduced the very first Energi Cabin. This venture resulted in the opening of our manufacturing facilities in Omagh and a major increase in employment to meet demand. KES Energi then rebranded to KES Group.


The Austrian brand ETA partnered up with KES Group to supply biomass heating solutions across Ireland. Biomass technology is a heating solution fuelled by wood to deliver significant reductions in heating costs whilst providing effortlessly responsive heat for domestic and commercial use. With further research into the Biomass market, it became clear that space was a massive problem faced by commercial clients for Biomass heating systems. This got the team thinking and with further research, we introduced the very first ‘Energi Cabin.’

The Biomass Energi Cabin range consists of two options, the i-Line Cabin and the K-Line Cabin:

  • The i-Line Cabin is for domestic and commercial use. It combines a plantroom and pellet store for one or more biomass boilers. The cabin is complete with a state of the art fibre cement weatherboard. This cabin has a contemporary look that is stylish, durable and maintenance-free.
  • The K-Line Cabin is robust and durable and ideal for rural and agricultural settings. This cabin is covered in a powered coated aluminium. It holds an energy plant containing one or more ETA Biomass Boilers with a fuel transfer system and appropriate buffer tank.

Due to the increase in demand for these cabins, we introduced our Fossil Fuel Plantrooms. With our extensive expertise in these fields, it made sense to expand our product range of prefabricated energy centres.

For this venture, KES Group had to hire a team of professionals (architects, engineers, electricians, plumbers etc) to work closely with clients in the Planning, Design, Construction & Fit Out of the project. This process enables our team to create a bespoke Energi Cabin that is exactly specific to the requirements of the client. It’s our intent to provide a consumer experience and create something that will benefit our clients now and in the future.

Due to the booming success of the Energi Cabin it became obvious that there was a gap in the market for bespoke modular buildings that were convenient, high quality and quick. Therefore, in 2017, SmartBuild was born.


The art of SmartBuild is to design a building bespoke to our client’s exact requirements. The SmartBuild brand is extremely versatile. It offers a product range for all sectors; Domestic and Commercial. SmartBuild enables full control from design to completion so the end product is fit for purpose. Constructed and designed in-house before being delivered to site ready for final installation. As a result, the convenience and uniqueness is what makes SmartBuild stand out.

People are at the core of our business and it is our job at KES Group to supply future-proof technologies. Creating a vision for our company is important. We thrive for success from within, offering promotions, opportunities, and allowing our professionals to discover new technologies that will diversify KES Group and enable us to stay on top of potential or new competition. We believe that increased performance and competitiveness should not come at the expense of the planet. Therefore, we apply an ISO:14001:2015 standard throughout all divisions; Energi and SmartBuild.

To conclude, the expansion of our product offerings has lead KES Group to expanding premises and employment numbers. We have secured a 10 acre commercial site in Strabane in conjunction with Invest NI. Phase one of this project consists of a 40,000sqft state of the art manufacturing facility which will accommodate our head office and part manufacturing facility. Consequently, this expansion allows us to meet customer demand and enter into new exciting markets within the offsite construction industry.
