Ricoh opens a new business services centre in Gdańsk and begins recruitment. The centre will be responsible for tasks delegated by all of the company’s branches in the EMEA region (Europe, Middle East and Africa).
Gdańsk was selected because of its access to modern infrastructure as well as highly qualified and educated workforce. Ricoh Business Services will be located within the Olivia Business Center complex in Gdańsk.
Members of the new Ricoh team will enjoy a range of career and personal development opportunities. At Ricoh, they will be able to gain new skills and experience in the implementation of various projects.
“Gdańsk is a recognizable brand for a number of global players, offering enormous potential for the shared services sector. Here we will be able to secure very good conditions for the performance of tasks for our EMEA branches. This new investment will increase the pace of the company’s transformation and its profitability”, said Nicola Downing, Chief Financial Officer at Ricoh Europe. “We are currently in the process of looking for personnel to join our new team and help make the Ricoh business services centre grow”.
“We are happy that Ricoh chose Gdańsk and we hope our cooperation will be mutually beneficial. As part of the Invest in Pomerania initiative, we want to support yet another global leader in creating a modern business services centre in our region”, said Mieczysław Struk, Governor of the Pomeranian Province, adding that „Ricoh is a well-known technology provider and employer in Poland. The company’s decision to create a centre in Gdańsk means that our region offers international companies access to a dynamic, talented and educated workforce as well as modern infrastructure”.
