Client story

Tulip puts down roots at new HQ in Assembly Square

How the new space is accommodating the start-up’s rapid growth

Boston-based technology company, Tulip, is founded on the notion that people will always be the most valuable resource for companies’ operations. Although automation has come a long way, people are still at the center of factory operations and Tulip’s goal is to empower people working in operations through their advanced technologies.

“It’s important to us and to our CEO and to our leadership team that we get things like office space right because it has so much impact on our culture and our ability to grow.”

Gillian Catrambone, Tulip Chief of Staff

What started out as a few engineers from the MIT Media Lab (and a couple of dogs) has grown into an international company that is scaling up and growing at a rapid pace. To accommodate their expanding team, Tulip needed a new headquarters that would work for their people, clients, and would provide space to showcase how the product works. 

For Tulip, Assembly Square could not be a more fitting location for their headquarters. In the same building where the original Ford Edsel was assembled in 1957, Tulip is developing state of the art, advanced technology that makes manufacturing processes more efficient.

Though the building has some deep roots in Assembly Square, the space has been custom tailored to fit the needs of Tulip employees. From the moment you enter space, you are immersed in the Tulip Experience Center where you can see the product displays in action.

It is clear to see that Tulip knows their people and has defined goals for the future. By partnering with JLL, they were able to achieve a space that supports a positive culture, collaboration and continued growth.
