A new shared service centre is opening in Riga for Allnex, a leading supplier of resins, additives and compounds for architecture, industrial manufacturing, safety equipment and car manufacturing industries, as well as manufacturers of electrical goods and plastics. The company also supplies special coatings and inks. This shared service centre will in time provide over 120 jobs in financial, procurement, staff management and data management services. Mediation by the international real estate company “Colliers International” ensured that the new office premises, with a total area of 1,305 sq.m. in the "Astras Biznesa Centrs" business centre building, were found. The opening of a new shared service centre in Latvia was discussed at the conference "International Investment into Real Estate in Latvia 2014". Ēriks Bergmans, a partner and director within the company’s brokerage department, comments that "an analysis of the market of current office premises shows that at the moment, outsourcing centres hold a 10% market share. Up to 20% of the total office premises market would be an optimal market share for outsourcing centres in the Eastern Europe region; therefore, Latvia still has something to strive for”.
