Something new is happening at Maurice Ward!
5 Sep 2018
On 18th June 2018, we officially launched a new specialised art storage facility to the art world at Art Business Summit in Limerick. As Ireland’s leading art storage and handling experts, we believe we can support UK and US Art Galleries by providing an alternative storage hub in Europe. The decision to make the new acquisition and add to our storage facilities was driven both by increasing client demand and by Ireland’s strategic location between Europe and the US.
As John Ward, our director, explains, the commercial and geographical expediency of an Irish hub will undoubtedly gain more significance in the wake of the UK’s imminent departure from the European Union:
“Brexit is likely to have an impact on the movement of art in terms of costs and administration. We believe Ireland is uniquely positioned to support the movement of art between the US and Europe. As the only service provider of its kind in Ireland, with facilities all over Europe and over 50 years experience in logistics, we are delighted to be able to meet the exacting standards of our clients and provide private and managed storage solutions to fine art and antiquities collectors worldwide.”
Our professional art storage warehouse in Dublin has been constructed to the highest specification and incorporates the most up-to-date security, fire protection and environmental standards. It has 24 hours a day monitoring and is linked to both the Police and Fire Services.
