Computacenter to employ 200 in Poznan

In August 2018, one of the world's leading IT service providers, the UK's Computacenter, will launch in Poznan (western Poland). It is expected to employ around 200 people in its new offices, the Polish Investment and Trade Agency (PAIH) announced.

"Poland is the most attractive location in the whole of Central and Eastern Europe for investments in the business services sector," PAIH Executive Vice President Krzysztof Senger was quoted in a press release as saying. "In Poland we have over 1,100 BSS (business support services - PAP) centres, while in the Czech Republic for example they have one quarter of the number and in Slovakia only 65."

Senger added that such projects are also "a significant slice of our cake." "Last year we successfully closed (deals on - PAP) 26 of them and at the moment we're working on 51," Senger continued. "Poznan - next to Warsaw, Wroclaw, Krakow and Lodz - is among the strongest centres of BSS development in Poland."

PAIH, which advised Computacenter on its choice of location, announced that Poznan is the company's latest branch. The company recently opened offices in North America.

Computacenter is opening a new centre in Poznan because it's an ideal location, enabling the company to service both existing and future clients, Computacenter's Paul Anderson was quoted in the release as saying. The investment is a response to growing demand for Computacenter services and an opening for cooperation with new international entities active on the European market, he said. The centre will focus on servicing clients in German.
