Swiss drug maker Nycomed to inaugurate BPO centre in Lodz


Nycomed, the Swiss pharma firm, will in mid-September officially inaugurate its business process outsourcing (BPO) centre in Lodz, Puls Biznesu reported.

The 1,100 m2 facility, which started operations at the beginning of the year, already employs 80 people, but has the capacity to accommodate even 110 staff. Over the past nine months it has assumed responsibility for providing finance and bookkeeping support for about a third of Nycomed’s 70 subsidiaries worldwide. It serves the group’s units in 24 countries in Europe, including full book-keeping and financial-reporting support (as well as IT services) for nine Eastern Europe markets, said Jacek Slomczynski, head of the Lodz centre.

According to Aleksandra Suszczewicz, an investment support officer at the Lodz city authority, in the future Nycomed wants the centre to serve other companies as well. It may also receive new business as a result of Nycomed’s recent takeover of Takeda, the largest pharmaceutical company in Japan.

When the decision about the opening of the centre was first announced last year, Nycomed said its choice of Lodz reflected the city’s convenient location in central Poland, low business costs, and a large supply of qualified staff due to its status as a major academic hub with a student population of 120,000.
