Today marks an exciting milestone in our journey at PM Design Group. We are thrilled to announce that JL Architects, a firm based in West Chester, PA, is now part of our team. This acquisition is about more than expanding our footprint. It's about bringing together two teams who share a passion for a commitment to excellence.
Enhanced Expertise and Expanded Reach
The addition of JL Architects to PM Design Group not only gives us a new presence in the Philadelphia region but also enriches our team with 12 talented professionals. Founded in 1988, JL Architects has an impressive portfolio spanning retail centers, restaurants, entertainment venues, office buildings, manufacturing facilities, and multi-family housing. This diversity will enhance our offerings.
We're delighted to welcome John Lister, Principal of JL Architects, and his team to the PM Design Group family. Their fresh perspectives and ideas will open possibilities.
Shared Values, Shared Vision
Like us, JL Architects values client partnership, dedication, and commitment to each project. We believe this shared ethos will ensure a smooth integration and benefit all stakeholders. This merger allows us to utilize their experienced talent to support our clients' national expansion and multi-site programs, and we can't wait to learn from their insights and knowledge.
Roy Pedro, President and CEO of PM Design Group, shared his excitement, “I am excited to integrate a group of talented professionals into the PMDG family. This acquisition builds on PM Design Group’s existing expertise and footprint for our national client rollout programs and also adds additional sector portfolio experience to further diversify future project opportunities. The addition of the JL Architects team aligns with our strategic growth objectives to expand across the United States, allowing us to offer our services efficiently in the Mid-Atlantic. We are thrilled to welcome the talented people from JL Architects to our team.”
John Lister, AIA, Principal of JL Architects, echoed this sentiment, “Joining PM Design Group allows us to offer an even wider range of services to our clients. We're excited to be part of a growing organization with a coast-to-coast reach.”
Seamless Transition, Continuous Service
We understand that combining two firms is a significant task. We're dedicated to ensuring a seamless transition for JL Architects and its clients into the PM Design Group culture, maintaining continuity of service throughout this integration process. We anticipate most transitions will occur by the end of November, with full integration by the end of the year.
We are very excited about this new chapter in our history. This acquisition signifies more than growth—it represents our ongoing commitment to fostering a culture of partnership, trust, excellence, and innovation. We're confident this merger will only enhance our ability to serve our clients and continue our mission to invest in great people, empowering them to achieve exceptional results.
We are grateful for the support and trust of our clients, partners, and employees, which has been instrumental in our success so far. As we embark on this exciting new chapter, we invite you to join us in celebrating this milestone and look forward to building a brighter future together.
