ÅF acquires architectural firm Koncept Stockholm
The acquisition of Koncept Stockholm further strengthens the ÅF offer within architecture and urban planning.
Koncept Stockholm is a fast-growing business with a strong brand. The company is a market leader within the premium segment consisting of commercial customers within hospitality, retail and office property. The Mood shopping mall, Haymarket by Scandic and the head offices of Klarna are among its many successful reference projects. Currently, the company has a turnover of 85 MSEK and some 70 Stockholm-based employees.
”Koncept Stockholm is one of the foremost businesses within its field, and it complements our current business offer. Together with Koncept Stockholm, we are taking another step towards becoming the preferred partner for turnkey projects within property development and urban planning”, says Jonas Gustavsson, CEO and president of ÅF.
A year ago, architectural firms sandellsandberg in Sweden and tegn_3 in Norway became part of ÅF. The acquisition of Koncept Stockholm strengthens the ÅF competence within housing and complements its current design offer, which includes architecture, industrial design, lighting and landscape architecture. With the acquisition, the total workforce will amount to some 350 employees in this segment.
”We are facing an extremely exciting phase and looking forward to developing and strengthening our offer with ÅF. At Koncept Stockholm, we develop solutions which strengthen and are characterized by the brand and values of the customer. Our drive to create customer value is part of our DNA and something that we have in common with ÅF”, says Nils Nilsson, CEO of Koncept Stockholm.
Koncept Stockholm is consolidated by the ÅF Group as of May 2017.
