We are glad that we have found a very capable partner in JLL to start this journey in office infrastructure around the globe.

"JLL will not just bring deep experience in the life science market, which will help us to create more value from our facilities for our colleagues globally at Merck, they will also help us to stay on top of the latest developments in our sector.”

Neil Murray, CEO, JLL Corporate Solutions, EMEA, said: “This partnership with Merck is an exciting opportunity to work with an inspiring science and technology company who has a clear vision and commitment to enhance the facilities management driven value creation for its employees.
