Bayer to locate BPO centre in Poland?


Bayer is considering locating a large business process outsourcing (BPO) centre in Poland, Puls Biznesu has learnt. The German pharma firm is looking at four candidate locations in the country, all of which were recently visited by Bayer representatives: the Tricity area, Poznan, Wroclaw, and Katowice, a source close to the process told the newspaper. The facility would provide financial and bookkeeping support to Bayer subsidiaries in Central and Eastern Europe and Scandinavia, and would employ 300 people.

Bayer declined to confirm the news, stating merely that no firm decisions about location have been taken.

The four Polish cities are reportedly competing with Vilnius and Tallinn for the project.

The news lends support to reports by the Association of Business Service Leaders in Poland (ABSL), a BPO industry group, about growing interest among big pharma firms in locating service centres in the country. In August Wroclaw authorities revealed they were in talks with three pharmaceutical companies about locating BPO and research facilities centres in the city.

Pharma firms with service centres in Poland include GlaxoSmithKline, Roche, or Nycomed.
