Tate & Lyle opens shared service centre in Lodz


Tate & Lyle, a London-listed manufacturer of ingredients for the food industry, on 20 October officially inaugurated a global shared service centre in Lodz. The facility will provide support to Tate & Lyle business across the world and will be its main principal location for providing shared services globally, the group said in a statement. At present the centre employs 70 staff, but the number is to more than double to reach 160 employees by the end of next year, as Tate & Lyle moves more transactional, finance and payroll processes as well as IT services to Lodz.

Javed Ahmed, the CEO of Tate & Lyle, said the centre represented "a key investment in the long-term future of Tate & Lyle", enabling the group "to deliver high quality information to all its operations across the world, and to achieve significant efficiencies and economies of scale".

Tim Lodge, the group’s Chief Financial Officer, said Lodz was the ideal location for the centre thanks to its skilled workforce, modern office facilities, and investments in infrastructure.

The Polish city was picked from a group of 36 candidate locations in Europe (its nearest rival was Bratislava).

Tate & Lyle has over 30 manufacturing plants and a network of research centres in Europe, the Americas and Southeast Asia.
