Tengbom Architects make another strategic acquisition in the Nordic region

Tengbom Architects, one of the leading architectural firms in Northern Europe, strengthen its position through the acquisition of Eriksson Architects in Helsinki, Finland.

Tengbom Architects have since 1906 combined innovative and holistic design for present and future generations. The company was founded by the world-famous architect Ivar Tengbom, known for the Stockholm Concert Hall, where the Nobel Prize ceremony is held every year. During the past years Tengbom has grown substantially and has, with the acquisition of Eriksson Architects, almost 600 employees in twelve cities in the Nordics as well as an office in Cambodia through a co-operation with The Room Design Studio.

Tengbom also has a strong presence in countries such as Russia, Tanzania and China. In 2011 Tengbom was awarded the prestigious MIPIM Future Project Award for the Swedish Sino Eco City in Wuxi, China.

– Tengbom’s goal is to continue growing in Northern Europe and the acquisition of Eriksson Architects is a key step. We have seen a strong demand for our services, especially within the field of urban planning, in Finland and the acquisition will strongly benefit our clients, says Magnus Meyer, CEO, Tengbom.

Eriksson Architects is one of the ten largest architectural firms in Finland and has several projects in the Baltic countries as well as in Russia and China.

– Our next step will be to look into further strategic acquisitions in northern Europe such as Norway, Denmark and the UK, Magnus Meyer continues.
