International commercial interiors specialist Agilité has marked its continued growth with the opening of a Luxembourg office – as the company celebrates its fourth year of trading and expected turnover in 2022 exceeding €40 million.
With existing bases in London, Paris, and Milan, as well as a planned expansion into the US and Germany, the Luxembourg headquarters, located on rue de la vallee, comes as Agilité chalks up its 151st project since its inception in January 2018 – amounting to 120,000 sqm, delivered across 11 countries.
The Luxembourg office is headed by development director Kirsty Shearer, with her eight-strong local team including specialists in architecture, design, finance, and project management.
"Luxembourg is somewhere we’re keen to grow the Agilité reach and reputation,” explained Kirsty Shearer, “having already completed four projects in-country, and with an additional two underway or in the pipeline, it was important we firmly established a base here.
“We’re looking to further invest in the region too, and are actively recruiting for project managers and construction managers, financial managers within the Benelux region.”
Agilité’s thriving client portfolio includes brands such as LVMH, Lids/NBA, Booking.com, Deutsche Börse, Fred Perry, Five Guys, and The Instant Group, as well as several major multinationals in the tech and finance sectors.
The founder and CEO of Agilité Solutions, Neil Coales, credits loyal customers — who account for 65% of the company's order book — as the driving force behind its rapid expansion: "When we launched Agilité, the strategy was always to have a seamless pan-European business that could be operational in multiple locations for multiple customers.
“We don't want to have an office in every country, rather we identify locations that best support our clients' growth plans and the strong local supply chains we are building. The pursuit of quality is as much our goal as the overall expansion, which is why we allocated a €1million investment into our people and systems (in 2021) as part of a five-year plan – it's critical to our success."
The expansion of the European company — which provides office, retail, and hospitality construction and fit-out work across the continent — follows 30% year-on-year growth and has included an extensive branding project to reshape its core principles, service set, and visual identity.
The news follows a successful year of trading in 2021, which saw a 30% growth in turnover and headcount, as well as exponential growth in revenue — amounting to €35million by the end of 2021.
