In January 2023, it was announced that this fall, the Danish company Nilfisk - a global market leader within professional cleaning equipment and services - would move its head office from Brøndby, a suburb to Copenhagen, to a brand new office building in Nordhavn, central Copenhagen.
The time has now come. Today, Nilfisk moves into its new head office in Nordhavn.
It will serve as an inspiring hub for Nilfisk’s strategic journey towards long-term sustainable growth. The vibrant working environment will foster a collaborative culture and will become a meeting place for the many international colleagues in Nilfisk. Further, the new head office will underline Nilfisk’s position as an innovative, customer-focused and sustainable company with a strong Danish heritage.

“Moving into the new head office is a milestone in the history of Nilfisk. It reflects our position as an innovative, international company with a strong commitment to sustainability. The head office is designed for modern activity-based work as we want to foster a collaborative culture and a growth mindset among our employees. Leading the industry with sustainable products is a top priority at Nilfisk, and we are looking forward continue to deliver on our ambitious targets in Business Plan 2026 from the new head office,” says interim CEO of Nilfisk, René Svendsen-Tune.
