abat established its first Baltic office in Vilnius abat LT and is now looking to expand its 900+ global workforce, scattered across North America and Europe by hiring additional talent in Vilnius.
Founded back in 1998, the Germany-based abat Group offers SAP (System Analysis Program Development) products and services – from software development to implementation and consultancy. Its main clients include such major European car manufacturers as Mercedes, Volkswagen, and BMW, as well as logistics companies like DHL, and other key manufacturing and process manufacturing industry players.
To its employees, the company offers numerous training and professional development opportunities, responsible work, flexible conditions, and a flat organisational structure.
According to him, the reasons behind choosing Vilnius include the city’s vibrant high-tech sector, attractive and stable environment, government support for new businesses, high degree of digitalisation, and urban infrastructure that’s attractive to employees and employers alike.
The new hiring drive, scheduled to commence in the summer of 2023, will be part of the Group’s efforts to integrate abat LT into its global corporate structure. This will enable the Vilnius office to provide SAP consulting and AMS services to existing European clients with maximum efficiency, and to function as the first point of contact for new customers in the Baltics.
Apart from hiring more people for its Vilnius branch, the Group also has further plans for the near future in Lithuania. “We cooperate with different universities in North America and Europe, scouting for IT talents in areas like AI integration and cloud computing. As soon as we’ve got all the resources in place, we plan to do exactly the same in Lithuania. We’re also regular at various national and international logistics, business, sustainability, and cybersecurity events,” Thomas Bätge said.
For Elijus Čivilis, General Manager at Invest Lithuania, abat’s growth plans in Vilnius are further proof of city’s attractiveness for its mature technology ecosystem: “abat is yet another evidence that Vilnius is seen in the international market that offers favourable and trustworthy environment for high-tech companies. abat works with globally known players in the automotive and discrete manufacturing industries and partnering with local universities and providing know-how on SAP consulting to abat LT team, the company will contribute to the development of local specialists’ competencies,” said Elijus Čivilis.
