Office Expansion

Agilité Solutions invests €1million in Italy and Luxembourg expansion

Agilité Solutions, a pan-European company specialising in construction services — from the preliminary to the post-delivery phases of a project — has expanded its capacity with the opening of new offices in Italy and Luxembourg.

In the wake of the expansion, the company expects to see 30% growth in turnover and headcount by the end of 2021, as well as exponential growth in revenue — amounting to €35million by the end of 2021, with a forecasted increase to €45million by 2022.

The expansion of this Paris-headquartered company — which specialises in interior fit-outs across the office, retail, and hospitality sectors — follows 50% year-on-year growth, with a client portfolio which includes LVMH, Booking.com, Deutsche Börse, Fred Perry, Five Guys, and The Instant Group, as well as several major multinationals in the tech sector, which are based in the French capital.

The Italian office is supervised by country manager, Maria Lusia Daglia, who has recently completed projects for Neosperience, QBE, and Indeed.com. As part of Agilité Solutions’ growth strategy, she will focus on supporting the company’s development in Italy and Europe.

Maria Luisa Daglia commented: “Italy is one of the countries on which Agilité Solutions relies the most, and it is an honour to hold the role of country manager, being able to give my contribution and further push to the growth of the company. My commitment will be to ensure innovative and ad-hoc solutions that guarantee our customers the best value for money in the delivery of their expansion projects.”

The company has also expanded its international team, with the recruitment of six new colleagues with various multidisciplinary skills — from architecture, engineering, and project management to cost estimation. One such hire included Sara Lapointe, who joined the Italian team in the role of executive project manager.

As opportunities in Luxembourg have also increased, the pan-European company has made several local hires to meet the growing demand and, over the next 12 months, will launch a recruitment drive across all sites to increase staffing levels by 30-50%.

Development director, Kirsty Shearer, who heads up the Luxembourg office, said: “Luxembourg is rich in multilingual talent, with a variety of rather unique skills and aptitudes. It also shares its borders with Belgium, France, and Germany, which is crucial as we look to expand in the future.

“The international reputation of the clients we work with — such as UNOFI, Deloitte, JD Sports, T-Systems and Singapore Airlines — speaks for itself and is a testament to the value and expertise of our team.”

The founder and CEO of Agilité Solutions, Neil Coales, credits loyal customers — who account for 70% of the company’s order book — as the driving force behind its rapid expansion: “When we decided to launch Agilité Solutions, the strategy from the beginning was 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 trying to build. The pursuit of quality is as much our goal as the overall expansion. That’s why we’ve allocated €1 million in investment in our people and systems as part of our initial five-year plan – it’s critical to our success.”
