New acquisition further extends JLL’s market-leading Tétris design and fit-out business, now in 16 EMEA countries
JLL has announced the acquisition of Neo-Świat, Poland’s leading property fit-out providers, to become part of its Tétris design and fit-out business. With the acquisition taking immediate effect, the newly combined operations offer a comprehensive range of fit-out services, including space planning, design, project management and construction, as part of JLL’s broader Tétris capability which now extends to 16 EMEA countries.
The acquisition is strongly mutually beneficial, enabling Neo-Świat to access a wider client base and larger scale projects, while giving JLL’s Tétris business a new market-leading capability in Poland, in response to growing client demand and consistent with its strategic growth plans. Neo-Świat brings an outstanding 15-year track record of successful projects in the office, retail, industrial, hotel and residential sectors across the country, creating great synergies with JLL’s broader real estate services. For an interim period, the business line will operate as Tétris by Neo-Świat, before fully rebranding as Tétris.
Pawel Brodzik, Managing Director of Tétris by Neo-Świat, said: “We are convinced this merger will greatly benefit both companies, enabling us to combine our knowledge and strengths in the Polish market with Tétris' powerful international platform. With this union, we will reinforce our technical capabilities and gain international scale, as well as access to the tools, solutions, knowledge, and, last but not least, clients from across the globe. This will underpin and enhance the already excellent client relations and proactively high standard services that have always been at the heart of our business.”
Tomasz Trzósło, Managing Director of JLL Poland, said: “Tétris and Neo-Świat are culturally and strategically aligned, sharing the same core business model based on quality and highly complementary values and methods. Therefore this merger is a logical growth step for both companies. Neo-Świat employs qualified construction specialists, including architects, engineers, cost planners, project managers and construction experts. With this move we will be able to offer a complete range of services to tenants with regards to their space requirements - starting from workplace consultancy, through office search advisory, internal design, project management and project monitoring, to the delivery of full fit-out. In addition, the new company will also provide fit-out and refurbishment construction services to landlords, especially funds owning real estate in Poland, developers and other owners of real estate. We see an increase in demand for such high end workplace consultancy and we meet this demand with the complex offer that is unique on the Polish market”.
Neo-Świat’s existing team of 68 people will continue to be located at 597 Puławska Street in Warsaw, operating under the Tétris by Neo-Świat brand. The team will be led by Paweł Brodzik and Rajmund Węgrzynek, founders of Neo-Świat, and now joint Managing Directors of Tétris by Neo-Świat.
