Adhesives producer Henkel Slovensko has decided to expand its Shared Services Centre in Bratislava, city officials told the TASR newswire on Thursday, March 26.

The centre should create 150 new jobs within the next two years. Company director Juraj Lackovič said that it will be possible to expand the centre only if the company manages to find an additional 150 professionals with language skills.

Mayor of Bratislava Andrej Ďurkovský said that this move is completely in line with the local authority's goal of boosting Bratislava's role as a knowledge-based city. He promised that city officials will co-operate in the project.

Lackovič also said that the company's latest project is to set up a Purchase Competence Centre in Bratislava that will co-ordinate purchases of direct and indirect materials and logistics, while concentrating mainly on Western Europe.

The company established its service centre in Bratislava in 2007. The centre manages selected financial and accounting operations for the company in 23 countries including the US and Canada. The goal is to extend this service to 25 countries. TASR
