Official opening Shanghai office

Official opening Shanghai office

After doing business in China for three years, Inbo confirms its confidence in the Chinese market and determinacy to be part of it by officially opening an office in Shanghai. The official opening act was carried out today by Mrs. Anneke Adema, the Dutch Consul General of Shanghai. Over 100 invited guests attended the opening party. Almost 200 Inbo employees celebrated with them from the Netherlands through a livestream connection with Shanghai.
 
“After exploring the market and gaining experience in projects, it is time to show our commitment by settling down and building up a local team” says Aron Bogers, architect and partner at Inbo and responsible for all activities of Inbo International. “In October Inbo officially became a registered entity and since then stationed an experienced Dutch team in the new office in Anken Warehouse, an international incubator with an inspiring dynamic mixture of Chinese and Western companies.”
 
Mark Dekker, Inbo’s new Director Asia: “It is important for Inbo to be based in China to accommodate our clients’ needs at the Chinese pace. With local presence it is easier to adapt to local conditions and specific market trends. Our Shanghai team works on present-day projects in close collaboration with Chinese partners and our colleagues in the Netherlands.”
 
“In China we see the same changes Inbo experienced in its 50 years of existence. A transformation from fast, product driven growth to content driven concepts for a sustainable society”, says Tako Postma, CEO of Inbo. The increasing demand for high quality products and services offers opportunities for Inbo with their all-round expertise in Urban Planning, Architecture and Interior design. Inbo has extensive experience with campus developments, transformations, mixed-use and residential projects.  “We hope we can support China’s new upcoming enterprising younger generation in realizing their ambitions towards a prosperous, culturally aware and sustainable future.”
