Cargotec celebrates today the official opening of its new global Cargotec Business Service (CBS) centre in Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria. The investment demonstrates Cargotec's confidence in the local team of dedicated professionals and the Bulgarian talent pool to help fuel company's growth.
"I would like to congratulate the CBS team on the official beginning of an exciting journey to build more streamlined common business services to improve efficiency, economies of scale and visibility. It will enable our business areas Kalmar, Hiab and MacGregor free time and resources to focus more on growth and innovation that make global trade faster, smarter and more sustainable," says Mikko Puolakka, Cargotec's Chief Financial Officer.
