COI + Element
Together as one
Together As One: Contemporary Office Interiors are excited to announce that Element Integrated Workplace Solutions will be joining our family.
Bringing COI and Element together unifies the MillerKnoll brand in the Calgary market by joining two experienced and like-minded companies to provide a higher level of community engagement and customer experience. We are thrilled for the opportunity to bring together the MillerKnoll family of brands and DIRTT’s construction leadership to better serve our clients and industry partners.
“When we began discussions with Greg Forsgren it became clear very quickly that our companies were aligned in both culture and the values that we both strive to represent. Bringing our companies together affords the best opportunity to allow our key supply partners, MillerKnoll and DIRTT, sustainable brand leadership in our markets long term. We are grateful for our suppliers support and belief in our merger. Together, we are confident our teams can elevate our expertise and solutions to better serve our customers, the design community and the construction community across our enterprise. We are excited to welcome Greg and his entire team at Element to the COI family.” -Rory Ellis, Chief Executive Officer and Partner, COI
Through the acquisition, Greg Forsgren (Principal and Owner of Element) will join COI as Principal.
“I can say confidently that the people centric values we represent as well as the high performing customer based solutions supported by our key partners of DIRTT and MillerKnoll will only be amplified by the joining of ELEMENT and COI. The leadership and vision of the combined organization is something I can’t wait to be a part of.” -Greg Forsgren, Principal and Owner, Element
