VF to expand EMEA HQ as growth in the region accelerates
VF Corp is planning to expand its EMEA headquarters in Stabio, Switzerland, in partnership with property group Swiss Prime Site Solutions. The proposed expansion will support the double-digit growth it’s seen in the EMEA region over the past 18 months.
The US-based outdoor/activewear giant is set to submit plans for the project to the relevant authorities for the construction of a major new building adjacent to VF’s current company campus.
If passed, the build will be completed within the next two years, created in line “with VF's commitment to sustainability [featuring a] modern and sustainable design”.
VF said the project is part of a growth trajectory that began in the South of Ticino 10 years ago, “confirming the company's willingness to establish a solid presence in the region”.
Martino Scabbia Guerrini, Executive VP, President EMEA, APAC & Emerging Brands for VF, said: “Our development path in Stabio continues, supporting the important growth of the business.
“Double-digit growth in the EMEA region over the past year-and-a-half and considerable growth in the number of employees working in our headquarters make it necessary to further reorganise our spaces. We are ready to present a beautiful project that we hope to be able to realise in the next two years, and we are proud to have attracted high-level investors in Ticino.”
Today, the VF Campus consists of four buildings measuring 20,000 sq m where more than 1,100 employees of more than 50 nationalities work and includes design and product development laboratories, a fabric testing laboratory and showrooms dedicated to the group's 12 different brands.
