armatis-lc Group continues to grow its business, opening a new site in Guimarães, Portugal
The armatis-lc Group has announced the opening of a new site this summer in Guimarães, northern Portugal, to increase its production capacity.
GUIMARÃES: A STRATEGIC CHOICE
There were several potential sites up for consideration, but armatis-lc finally decided upon Guimarães. As well as its proximity to the city of Porto (less than one hour’s drive) and the fact that there is an international airport nearby, the quality of the labour pool and the dynamism of the local institutions convinced armatis-lc that Guimarães city centre was the right place for its newest venture. The building will be fully renovated, making it the perfect showcase for a customer relations centre.
A NEW 2,700 SQUARE METRE SITE, CREATING MORE THAN 400 ADDITIONAL JOBS
The new Contact Centre will enable more than 400 new employees to be recruited. The site is scheduled to open this summer. A major recruitment campaign will be launched before this summer to identify potential future employees.
The Group’s expansion in Portugal demonstrates its satisfaction with the quality of its employees’ work and their commitment. “The armatis-lc Group has always based its development strategy on expanding its existing sites and this has always been a winning formula,” explains Denis Akriche, CEO. “Developing our production capacity in Portugal was a natural choice. We have qualified, driven employees who are committed to their company. Our customers appreciate the high level of service they receive from our Portuguese sites,” he continues.
