Northvolt, a manufacturer of environmentally sustainable battery cells and systems, has decided to establish a Business Scaling Center in Gdansk along with a Research and Development Center for IT services.
Northvolt is growing rapidly and currently employs 5.500 people. For the foreseeable future, much of the expansion and employment growth will take place in Europe, where battery cells are already being produced at the first Gigafactory in Sweden, and the construction of another production facility of similar scale in Germany is planned. The company is also preparing to make an investment in Canada.
– It is with great satisfaction that I announce another milestone in the development of Northvolt’s operations in Poland. Previous experience of the company’s operation in Gdansk has proven that it is a good place to invest, primarily due to the possibility of employing talented and committed employees who live in the region – says Robert Chryc-Gawrychowski, president of the Polish company Northvolt.
The Business Scaling Center (Northvolt Global Scaling Services) is the company’s response to the rapid pace of growth and the need to seek sustainable solutions to ensure the company’s growth and efficiency.
– Northvolt’s rapid growth in our region testifies to the creation of good conditions for the development of global business from various industries. I appreciate that thanks to the expansion of Northvolt’s current operations with a modern R&D center and SSC, Pomerania will become an even more important location on the global map of our investor – noted Mieczyslaw Struk, Marshal of Pomorskie Voivodeship.
Employees of the new company will support Northvolt in areas such as finance and accounting, purchasing, supply chain management, IT services and HR. This will ensure efficient operation and sustainable growth of the company.
– Our ambitions for Northvolt Global Scaling Services go far beyond the standards of a Shared Service Center. We will play a key role in realizing Northvolt’s growth aspirations. We will become a center for value creation through efficient service delivery and state-of-the-art process management – adds Alexander Streif, vice president of supply chain excellence and business scaling at Northvolt.
Recruitment for the Business Scaling Center has already begun, and the company plans to hire about 90 people by the end of 2024.
Since its inception, Northvolt in Gdansk has received significant support from Invest in Pomerania. Starting with providing assistance in the process of site selection and the start of construction, specialists from the initiative coordinated by the Pomerania Development Agency took care of the Swedish industry’s key investment. In the past year, an employer branding campaign was carried out, the effects of which could be seen in the urban space. Representatives of Invest in Pomerania are advising Northvolt on the choice of the target location of the Business Scaling Center, emphasizing the strategic importance of the mobility sector for the future of the region’s economy.
