At the beginning of June, American giant 3M opened a Business Shared Services Centre in Wrocław. It will support business processes within the company in 52 EMEA counties. Operating in Poland since 25 years, 3M has already invested half a billion of dollars in the country, including $ 300m in Wrocław.
To develop more advanced production, the company needs innovation and services units. Therefore, 3M decided to implement them in Wrocław, where the company’s production superhub operates. In 2005, 3M opened a R&D office in Wrocław and two years later launched the Centre of Innovations there. 3M’s BSS office will hire 400 professionals specialising in IT, database management, accounting and other advanced services for the company’s offices located in the 52 European, Asian and African countries. This is one of the three biggest BSS centres owned by 3M globally. Moreover, the investor has businesses in Poland including production units in Janów and Rabka. 3M is planning to develop its production capacity in Poland to make Poland the leading exporter of 3M’s products to the Eastern Europe markets.
