The Amsycom Group changes its name to Kardham

November 2016

The Amsycom group gets a new look and is renamed Kardham.

The new name reflects the group’s vision, strategy and expertise through a global approach to real estate and architecture.

Nearly two years ago, the Amsycom group brought in the internationally renowned architecture and urban planning agency, Cardete Huet Architects, which is ranked among the top 20 French agencies and whose ability to manage buildings of substantial scale and very high complexity is renowned by all the players in the profession. Optimization measures for our new organization have been successfully implemented and have ensured the sustainability of our know-how and talents. We are now strengthening our synergies under a new name, Kardham, symbolizing our history and the alliance of our three businesses: consulting, architecture and interior design,” explains Jean-François Couëc, Chairman of Kardham.

As an expert in the fields of consulting and real estate project management, from upstream strategic audit to turnkey delivery of operations, Kardham’s consolidated turnover for the year 2015 totalled €37.71 million, an increase of 21% compared to the previous year, at €31 million.

The group has tripled its size in six years. 2016 confirms this dynamism and allows Kardham to pursue its growth strategy with a steady progression of its activity. In order to strengthen its position as an independent leader and increase its autonomy, the group opened its capital at the beginning of the year to Bpifrance and Amundi Private Equity Funds as reference minority shareholders.

Business growth should again exceed 10% by the end of the year. And as we have a dynamic market positioning, our objective is to double our size by 2020. To achieve this, we will rely on the complementary nature of our teams, which are made up of a variety of specialists capable of handling all the dimensions of a real estate project and bring in new skills. The driving forces behind our growth are the evolution of our businesses, with technology, sustainable development and well-being in the workplace as a backdrop, and the necessary consolidation of our sector,” concludes Jean-François Couëc.
