Sports company Puma North America is setting up a new North American headquarters in Somerville, Mass in 2021. The new headquarters will bring together two Puma offices, currently based in Boston and Westford. Puma intends to have approximately 550 positions at the location once the move is complete, representing over 20 per cent growth of its workforce.

The mover is part of the company’s growth, retention and recruitment strategy,

"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," said Bob Philion, president and CEO of PUMA North America. "This new headquarters will allow us to better collaborate, foster diversity of thought, creativity and innovation, and have fun while doing it."

The new headquarters in Somerville provides the company with five floors of office space totaling 150,000 square feet. There will also be a 19,000-square-foot roof deck, complete with a recreational area and basketball court. The facility provides employees access to a state-of-the-art fitness centre, an on-location kids room, ample bike storage and a 2,300-square-foot balcony. The new space is steps away from the MBTA Orange Line Assembly Square stop and provides employees easy access to Assembly Row's abundant dining, shopping and health and wellness benefits. PUMA has operated a retail location at Assembly Row since 2014.

"Our brand mantra, 'Forever Faster,' spans everything we do—from making to marketing and every discipline in between," said 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."

"We are excited and proud to welcome one of the world's most recognisable brands to Somerville and look forward to introducing Puma to our talented and diverse workforce," said Somerville Mayor Joseph A Curtatone. "An energetic, creative and forward-looking company like Puma will fit right in with the innovation culture that is thriving here and continuing to grow." (SV)
