FLM+ will significantly expand its Minneapolis presence this spring with the relocation of its metro office to the historic TractorWorks Building, in the rapidly growing and vibrant downtown North Loop area. The hybrid strategic consulting, marketing and communications company serves the business of agriculture and the life of rural communities.
FLM+ is currently located in the western suburb of Wayzata. That office has quickly grown to become the largest in the company's network and the hub of public relations, creative, media, digital and project management operations.
"We have outgrown our capacity in Wayzata," said Rob McClelland, president and CEO of FLM+. "As we looked at options to expand, we immediately recognized two distinct benefits of relocating to downtown Minneapolis: greater access to some of the best creative talent in the country plus the opportunity to reimagine the function of our largest office."
In recent years, Minneapolis has emerged as a leading center of creative talent, fueled by growth of the city's agency base. McClelland said it only makes sense for FLM+ to be located in the center of that community, especially given the company's recent and anticipated growth. FLM+ has grown its number of team members by more than 25 percent over the past two years.
The former John Deere factory gives FLM+ the opportunity to improve how it delivers the core services FLM+ clients expect. "Our brand promise to clients is 'Wide open thinking,' and we decided to channel that philosophy in the design of our new space," said Laurie Fleck, executive VP and managing director of FLM+ Minneapolis.
McClelland said, "FLM+ has won several significant client engagements in recent weeks. The expanded Minneapolis office will give FLM+ additional facilities and bandwidth to accommodate this growth.”
