Jacobs announces the official opening of a new innovation hub in Denmark to meet growing demand from advanced manufacturing, life sciences and infrastructure clients in the region.  

Jacobs is already delivering critical life sciences and infrastructure projects for clients in Denmark. The investment in the new hub strengthens the company’s presence in the region, scaling its capacity to support strategically important projects for Danish companies at a domestic and global level. To support the growth of the business, Jacobs is adding up to 100 skilled roles in Denmark over the next three years. 

Jacobs’ innovation hub will provide Danish businesses with access to end-to-end innovation expertise from Jacobs’ global network of some 60,000 people – helping clients to plan, develop, finance, design, construct, maintain and operate advanced facilities and smart infrastructure.   

“Denmark is home to global leaders in innovation, from health and life sciences to sustainability, advanced manufacturing and tech,” said Jacobs Director of Life Sciences Operations, Denmark Lene Bjerregaard. “This, coupled with its strong economy and highly skilled workforce, make it a natural choice to establish our innovation hub. We will bring the breadth of Jacobs’ global capabilities to support existing clients in the region, and strengthen our presence across energy, water and environment, advanced manufacturing, infrastructure and government services.”

Jacobs helps clients in Denmark to deliver innovative, sustainable solutions that positively impact Denmark’s economy and society. This includes working with leading international biopharma companies, supporting the design and delivery of several large-scale bulk drug substance manufacturing facilities in Denmark that will bring lifesaving medicine to local and global markets, faster.

Jacobs is also deploying its collective strengths, partnering with PA Consulting (PA) to create significant opportunities for clients to move at pace and make a lasting impact. In 2023, through an eight-year framework, Jacobs and PA were selected to advise on the operation and maintenance of The Copenhagen Metro, one of most advanced public transit systems in the world. PA has also supported clients such as the Danish Ministry of Health and Naviair, the independent public organization that manages the Danish airspace. Jacobs and PA also collaborate to support major infrastructure clients from their operations in Sweden.

“Jacobs is committed to supporting industry and the broader economy in Denmark by collaborating with local engineering, architecture and consultancy firms to deliver large-scale projects with outcomes that benefit communities and drive growth for our clients in the region,” continued Jacobs Senior Vice President Kate Kenny. “We’re bringing our deep transportation experience to support The Copenhagen Metro, having helped deliver relevant projects including the Elizabeth line in London, the Klang Valley Mass Rapid Transit in Malaysia and The Metropolitan Transportation Authority's Grand Central Madison program in New York.”
