AFRY in the United Kingdom
AFRY UK was formed after ÅF and Pöyry joined forces in February 2019. Pöyry previously had a long history in the UK, establishing its first UK office in 1966 and broadening its offerings in the 1990s and 2000s with Pöyry Management Consulting and Pöyry Capital. Light Bureau joined ÅF in 2017, offering lighting solutions for infrastructure projects, architecture, and urban planning.
