Our Story

Forest Rock began as a small company in Nottingham during the height of the recession in the UK in 2010. We discovered the revolutionary Tridium product at an industry conference, and quickly became a Tridium Development Partner, designing middleware solutions for automating commercial buildings.

As we have continued to grow, we have expanded into the Irish market given its crucial role in the EU’s tech industry. As a result of our expansion we are now the official Tridium Niagara reseller for Ireland.

A new era has begun within the Smart Buildings Sector that has seen the emergence of apps and systems focusing on aiding the occupants of a building. This is a change that Forest Rock has openly embraced and seeks to contribute to as this change continues to drive the sector forward.

Forest Rock has now grown into a large company, and we have yet to show any signs of slowing down. The innovation of our experts has put Forest Rock at the forefront of IoT and BMS for the UK & Ireland, and we intend to stay there.
