Givaudan has recently announced the official opening of its new Givaudan Business Solutions (GBS) delivery centre in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The centre 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.
The GBS delivery centre in Kuala Lumpur's Petaling Jaya sector was officially inaugurated during a ceremony inspired by Malaysia's national flower the hibiscus, which is also used in the creation of some of Givaudan flavours and fragrances.
CEO Gilles Andrier said, “GBS is all about increasing agility and efficiency while driving excellence in the delivery of our services and solutions in order to grow alongside our customers. 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.”
Kuala Lumpur 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. The GBS centre in Kuala Lumpur will integrate processes from the functional areas of Finance, Procurement, Supply Chain and Enterprise Data Management.
Givaudan announced in July 2017 the start of the implementation of GBS, its global organisational unit that will provide best-in-class business services and solutions. Upon completion of the 3-year implementation, Givaudan will have the best possible platform to support the delivery of a superior experience to customers and employees while ensuring growth for the future.
