New domicile - Shipmondo ready to embark on journey of continued growth

Shipmondo is part of the Novitas Holding group. The software business simplifies order and freight handling for more than 40,000 companies throughout the Nordics, making it one of the biggest players on the market. Shipmondo was founded in 2014 by the two entrepreneurs Hung Ho and Nicklas Nguyen, and has been growing ever since. In May 2021, it won the ‘Best E-Commerce Tool 2021’ award, and it is a rapidly growing ‘gazelle’ company with big ambitions.

The company’s new 900-square-metre domicile is located in an open industrial district in south-east Odense with space for even more expansion on the 12,000-square-metre site. From the outside, it resembles a classic, modern industrial building constructed from dark concrete elements with large window sections. The vision is to create a campus that supports the creative environment and attracts the best employees.

Characterful canteen

While the facades are dark grey, the interior is light and airy. You step into a high-ceilinged hall, which offers access to all parts of the building. Meeting rooms, a canteen and a lounge area are close to the entrance on the ground floor. The first floor mainly houses open-plan offices and a small number glass-walled conference rooms. The balcony ensures a sense of contact with the large hall and the canteen below.

The canteen is beautifully fitted out with a black kitchen and black Nordic furniture. To top it all, the ceiling is clad with elegant Troldtekt line design acoustic panels in grey. Together with the tasteful and simple fittings, Troldtekt contributes to the exclusive feel of the room. The dark acoustic panels feature longitudinal milled grooves that add character and visual depth to the ceiling surface.

Troldtekt line design has also been used in the adjacent conference room. The rest of the building is acoustically regulated using the more traditional Troldtekt white/fine structure, which beautifully reflects the daylight.
