Givaudan officially opened its new Givaudan Business Solutions (BGS) delivery centre in Kuala Lumpur (KL), which will be the home to the business services and solutions that will form a platform for the company’s growth in the Asia Pacific region.
During the officiating event, Gilles Andrier, CEO of Givaudan said: “Our new centre is strategically situated in Malaysia to enable Givaudan to deliver a superior customer experience as we continue to grow in the region and work towards achieving our 2020 ambition.”
The new Kuala Lumpur centre joins Budapest and Buenos Aires as a key delivery centre for GBS. Initially focusing on finance and procurement solutions for indirect materials and services, the centre will begin implementing the full range of GBS activities in 2019. Specifically, it will integrate processes from the functional areas of Finance, Procurement, Supply Chain and Enterprise Data Management.
“Kuala Lumpur is particularly well positioned as a hub for talent and technology in the Asia Pacific region. GBS will leverage innovation and new ways of working to deliver solutions that are fully aligned with our business and designed to increase our effectiveness while allowing our people to focus on core activities that bring value to customers,” said Anne Tayac, Head of Givaudan Business Solutions.
