Ikea and Ikano invest big in Malmö

Publicerad

The Kamprad family is investing big in Malmö. Hubhult, Ikea’s new global office, is under construction next to the company’s furniture store in Svågertorp. Next year Ikano Bank and the property developers Ikano Fastigheter are moving their headquarters to Hyllie.

Next year Ikano Bank and Ikano Fastigheter will move their headquarters from Ideon in Lund to Klipporna, Skanska’s new, Danish-designed property in Malmö’s new Hyllie district.
”We’re expanding in Sweden and abroad, and Hyllie is a good strategic location for us”, says Stefan Nyrinder, CEO of Ikano Bank.

Besides its proximity to Copenhagen Airport, the headquarters’ location in Hyllie will place the two Kamprad-owned Ikano companies within walking distance of Ikea’s new global office, Hubhult, which is currently under construction across from the furniture company’s store near the Öresund Bridge in Malmö.

Construction of Hubhult should be completed in the summer of 2015. More than eight hundred will work in the global office, which will receive a thousand visitors a week from all over the world.
In addition to being a global meeting place, other existing companies will move into Hubhult – Ikea Food and Ikea Services from Helsingborg and Ikea Industry Investment & Development in Kastrup, among others.

Ikano Bank is active in Scandinavia, Great Britain and the Netherlands. Ikano Fastigheter develops and builds retail and residential properties in the Nordic countries. The company is part of the Ikano Group, founded in 1988 and owned by the Kamprad family. (News Øresund – Johan Wessman)

 

New headquarters have created more than 3 000 new jobs in Malmö since 2003 

For the city of Malmö, the Ikano Group’s decision to relocate means that the list of companies established in the area continues to expand. Since 2003, more than fifty companies have relocated their Swedish, Nordic or global headquarters to Malmö. The majority are companies in southern Sweden aiming to come closer to Copenhagen Airport and facilitate their recruitment of highly educated employees, but companies from Brussels, Denmark and the Stockholm area have also chosen to relocate their headquarters to Malmö.

According to estimates made by the Öresundinstitut in October of 2013, the new headquarters will have created 3 200 new jobs in Malmö between 2003 and 2015. The figures do not include the Ikano Group’s new headquarters.
