Novo Nordisk to build new corporate centre in Bagsværd, Denmark

Danish version

Novo Nordisk is investing around 134 million euros in two new office buildings with surrounding green space in Bagsværd, Denmark. The project is expected to create more than 300 jobs during the construction phase. The new office premises will house Novo Nordisk’s top management, 1,100 administrative employees and a number of shared facilities. Groundbreaking took place in October 2011, and the new corporate centre will be ready for occupancy at the end of 2013.

With the new premises, Novo Nordisk will be consolidating a number of administrative functions currently scattered across Greater Copenhagen. In future, the employees will be gathered at new, contemporary offices at the Bagsværd and Søborg sites.

“Although Novo Nordisk is primarily set to grow outside of Denmark in the coming years, we are looking forward to consolidating the administrative functions in Bagsværd, where we have been present since the 1950s. The new buildings will give our employees the best conditions for interacting across functional divides and with our colleagues abroad,” says Lars Rebien Sørensen, president and CEO of Novo Nordisk.

Around 14,000 of Novo Nordisk’s 32,000 employees work in Denmark. Beyond the Copenhagen area, Novo Nordisk has activities in Kalundborg, Hillerød, Værløse, Måløv and Hjørring.
