S&P 500 medical devices maker to open support centre in Krakow?


PerkinElmer, a NYSE-listed manufacturer of analytical instruments and genetic testing and diagnostic tools, plans to open a shared service and customer support centre in Krakow, Puls Biznesu reported citing unofficial sources. The facility would employ 250 people. The US group reportedly filed an application for a government grant under a special programme that supports investment projects of significance for the domestic economy already last year, but its examination has been postponed and it is about to be discussed shortly by the programme’s panel.

Andrew Hallam, secretary general of ASPIRE, the Association of IT & Business Process Services Companies in Poland, told the paper there was one other medical devices firm considering locating a service centre in Krakow.

PerkinElmer is a S&P 500 company with 2011 revenues of $1.9bn (approx. €1.5bn) and 7,000 employees worldwide. It makes a wide range of diagnostic, biopharma and life sciences research instruments, reagents and software, as well as environmental monitoring technologies.
