Palm Trees, Paradise and 10 hours of hell
Two PUMA employees qualify for the Ironman World Championships in Hawaii
The new headquarters is planned to be ready by 2021 and will bring together the two PUMA offices based in Boston and Westford, providing for best-in-class employee experience.
We’re excited to bring together our talented North American employees in Somerville, a diverse, vibrant city that reflects our values and culture, and will allow us to retain and recruit the best talent across our front and back-end operations
The new headquarters will be located at the Grand Union Boulevard in Assembly Row in Somerville in a soon-to-be-built 300,000-square-foot building. 150,000 square-feet spread over five floors of office space will allow PUMA to hire at least another 100 workers. Playing basketball and dining with a view comes on top: On a 19,000-square-foot roof deck, employees can enjoy their (lunch) break with a view over Somerville.
A state-of-the-art fitness center, an on-location kids room and a 2,300-square-foot balcony will also belong to the new headquarters. Not enough? The PUMA employees can also benefit from Assembly Row’s abundant dining, shopping and health and wellness area that is close by.
Why are we doing this?
PUMA North America pursues a growth, retention and recruitment strategy. And a growing business certainly needs space. Plus, uniting the current two offices in one place allows everyone to better collaborate and to benefit from each other’s creativity. “Our brand mantra, ‘Forever Faster,’ spans everything we do—from making to marketing and every discipline in between,” explains Adam Petrick, Global Director of Brand and Marketing at PUMA. “We need to be faster than ever in the way we react and adapt. Somerville is a city buzzing with creative, diverse energy that will help us live out our ‘Forever Faster’ mentality.”
