Effective November 1, 2016, San Jose-based architecture and interior design firm AAI will merge operations with the global design firm, NELSON. As a 2016 Rising Giant ranked by Interior Design Magazine, AAI has a growing presence in the Bay Area and larger Northern California region. The merger will add roughly 35employees to NELSON, who is projected to exceed 120% growth over two years with the deal. The addition brings NELSON’s regional count to over 80 Teammates, the third largest region in its operation. The combined company will employ almost 650 Teammates globally, and bill over $100 million in revenue.
The joining further emphasizes the company’s move to expand its strategic position and services on both a national and global level. With a projected revenue of $6.4 million for 2016, AAI will represent NELSON’s largest acquisition to date on the West Coast.
