Puma Opens the Doors to Its New North America Headquarters

Puma has opened the doors to its new North America headquarters.

The German athletic giant’s new home stateside is at Assembly Row in Somerville, Mass., consuming 150,000 square feet of office space at 455 Grand Union Blvd. With the move, Puma said it is bringing together its 450 employees from its two former Massachusetts offices in Boston and Westford.

The highlight of the facility, which was designed by architecture firm Gensler and constructed by Timberline Construction, is its 19,000-square-foot roof deck with a dining area and art installations. It also features a fitness center, a room for children visiting the office, bike storage and a 2,300-square-foot balcony. Puma also said the office is close to Assembly Row’s dining, shopping and health and wellness scene.

“To support Puma’s continued growth, fueled in large part by the North American market, we focused on creating a space that reflects our ‘Forever Faster’ mentality. We put creativity and innovation at the forefront, bringing together our entire North American team to collaborate and propel our brand forward,” Puma North America president Bob Philion said in a statement. “I’m thrilled to celebrate this exciting next chapter of Puma’s history as one collective team and look forward to continued success for the company here in Somerville and around the globe.”

Although the new office is open, with COVID-19 still present, Puma said the health of its employees is its main priority, and will continue to follow all CDC, state and local guidelines as they return to the office.

The opening of the new office comes as Puma has experienced what it has described as strong growth, including sales growth of 31.2% currency adjusted in the Americas in Q3.
