US medical equipment maker to open BPO centre in Wroclaw


Becton Dickinson, a NYSE-listed maker of medical devices, supplies, laboratory equipment and diagnostic products, will in early April announce an investment to open an advanced shared service centre in Wroclaw, Dariusz Ostrowski, head of ARAW, the regional development agency, told Puls Biznesu. The facility will provide finance and HR support to the group’s operations. Initially it will employ 150 staff.

The news comes a week after reports that Bayer has selected the Tricity area as the location for a business process outsourcing (BPO) centre to serve its operations in Central and Eastern Europe, and confirms a growing interest among global pharma firms in locating BPO operations in Poland. According to Jacek Levernes, president of the Association of Business Service Leaders in Poland (ABSL), a BPO industry group, “many” of the 30-50 potential BPO projects are by pharma firms, and the decisions of Bayer and Becton will serve as a further encouragement.

Becton Dickinson has offices in more than 50 countries worldwide. The Wroclaw centre will be its first site in Poland.
